CHROMagar COL-APSE growth medium for colistin-resistant bacteria

Friday, 03 November, 2017 | Supplied by: Dutec Diagnostics Pty Ltd

With polymyxin E (colistin) and B increasingly used as antimicrobials in the treatment of multidrug-resistant bacterial infections, polymyxin resistance is now a problem in a number of pathogens. CHROMagar COL-APSE is a sensitive and specific medium for the selective growth of colistin-resistant bacterial pathogens.

The product is particularly useful as a primary isolation medium in the surveillance and recovery of colistin-resistant bacteria from complex human, veterinary and environmental samples — especially those with plasmid-mediated MCR-1 or novel mechanisms of polymyxim resistance.
