Chromagenic culture media

Wednesday, 08 April, 2009 | Supplied by: bioMerieux Australia


bioMérieux is enhancing its line of food safety solutions with the launch of two chromogenic culture media, chromID Sakazakii and chromID Vibrio.

The chromID Sakazakii medium provides precise reliable controls for the neonatal pathogen, Enterobacter sakazakii. Its formula reveals two sakazakii-specific enzyme activities — D-glucopyranosidase and β-cellobiosidase — thus offering a high level of detection sensitivity within 24 hours of incubation. Validated for detection per various enrichment protocols and for incubation at 35-37 °C, it offers flexibility of use.

chromID Vibrio detects two species that are harmful for humans. The combination of a chromogenic substrate to reveal βgalactosidase activity, a sugar, and an inhibitor cocktail, allow for the specific and distinct detection of Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Vibrio cholerae.

Parahaemolyticus and cholerae are responsible for severe intestinal diseases, including chlolera.
