Difco™ Dehydrated Media
Difco Laboratories, originally known as Ray Chemical, was founded in 1895. This company produced high quality enzymes, dehydrated tissues and glandular products to aid in the digestion process. After World War II, the microbiology and health care fields expanded rapidly. Difco focused on the development of microbiological and immunological products to meet this growing demand. In the 1960s, Difco Laboratories became the largest manufacturer of microbiological culture media by acquiring the ability to produce agar. Difco offers the same premier "gold standard," Bacto Agar™, today.
