With USP <60> there has been a great deal of discussion about Bcc.  One of
the swabbing procedures we use in our plant has an enrichment step.  Does
anyone have any comment regarding how competitive Bcc is in a non-selective
enrichment.  We are a non-sterile consumer product manufacturing facility
and find fast growing aerobic spore formers (Bacillus spp) in the
enrichments.  Has anyone used the Bcc medium as a broth to select for Bcc
during enrichment.  Thanks.
