Isolation of bacteria from allopathic and ayurvedic syrups used for UTI and diarrhoea
Keywords:Syrups, medicine store, bacteria, microbial contaminants
Syrups are used as the flavouring, colouring and sweetening agents in oral pharmaceutical products. I conducted my research on isolation & identification of bacteria found in Allopathic & Ayurvedic syrups. A total of 30 samples of syrups purchased from different medicine store of Paonta Sahib Market. The samples were processed for further dilutions (10-1-10-3) in 9ml distilled water & put into Nutrient agar plates by spread plate method. After that colony was propagate in Nutrient broth followed by culture on Selective Media- EMB, MacConkey, BSA, XLD, MSA etc. All isolates have their own morphological characters. I isolated 39 isolates in which 18S.aureus, 8Salmonella, 4E.coli, 5Pseudomonas were taken. These all pathogenic bacteria cause microbial contamination in syrups samples in pharmaceutical industries.
