I am having difficulty neutralizing vancomycin in a product that requires sterility testing. I have been using filtration with Fluid D and resin beads in TSB but would like to be able to do a direct inoculation into a medium that would neutralize the vancomycin. CYLG is mentioned in the literature but I cannot find any additional information except that it is casein yeast lactate glucose medium. Is there a formulation available?
Or alternately is there a medium that will help me achieve my goal?
