The suitability of well known conventional blood culture media for the detection of microorganisms in CSF and other blood-free body fluids has been tested. It was demonstrated that such media are unsuitable for the cultivation of fastidious and/or anticoagulant-sensitive microorganisms which are frequently isolated from CSF and other blood-free body-fluids. On the contrary, the recently-developed MOPS electrolyte broth A which proved to be a suitable cultivation and back-up medium for aerobic and facultative anaerobic microorganisms in CSF and other blood-free body fluids is not suitable for the detection of microorganisms in blood, because it is free of anticoagulants.
