Tryptic Soy Agar is a general-purpose culture medium for the isolation and cultivation of fastidious and non-fastidious microorganisms or the maintenance of stock culture. The formulation of the TSA medium contains a combination of casein and soy peptones supplying organic nitrogen, particularly amino acids, and longer-chained peptides. Sodium chloride maintains the osmotic equilibrium, and the natural sugars from soy peptone are the energy source.
