Bordet Gengou Agar Base, with the addition of glycerol and sterile blood, is used in qualitative procedures for the detection and isolation of Bordetella pertussis from clinical specimens.

  • Potato infusion and glycerol supply necessary nutrients
  • Defibrinated animal blood supplies additional nutrients
  • Animal blood enables detection of hemolytic reactions

Bordet Gengou Blood Agar is used in clinical laboratories as a method of diagnosing whooping cough. Bordetella pertussis, the etiologic agent of this disease, may be isolated from aspirated bronchial or nasopharyngeal secretions, perinasal swabs, or, perhaps with greater difficulty due to the diversity of flora, from throat swabs.
