Abstract: The aim of this article was to collate information about bacteriological media, presenting their composition, properties and the resultingpossible applications of a particular medium or group of media in bacteriological diagnostics. The most important groups of culture media were classified basing on their composition (synthetic, semi-synthetic and natural), consistency (liquid, semi-solid, solid), nutrient content (minimum, nutrient-enriched) and use (transport, nutrient, selective, differential, selective-differentiating, for susceptibility testing). Taking into account the practical aspect, much space is devoted to the classification of culture media based on their possible use. For each group, several examples of culture media with their major components and bacterial species for which they are intended are given. Brief information about the quality assurance and control of media during their preparation, transport and storage is also presented.
