BBL Chromogenic Water Testing Prepared Plated Media (all plates are 60 x 15mm)

Chromogenic substrates are colorless and, when cleaved by specific enzymes, are oxidized producing a characteristic color. The detection of a specific enzyme or enzymes can be used to identify genus, species, or groups of organisms. Colonies of organisms with the enzyme are a distinct color, providing easy recognition.

254093 BBL CHROMagar™ Candida ( 90mm plates) 20

$41.55

  CHROMagar Candida is a selective and differential medium. With the inclusion of chromogenic substrates in the medium, the colonies of C. albicans, C. tropicalis and C. krusei produce different colors, thus allowing the direct detection of these yeast species on the isolation plate.1-3 Colonies of C. albicans appear light to medium green, C. tropicalis colonies appear dark blue to metallic-blue and C. krusei colonies appear light mauve to mauve, flat colonies with a whitish border. Other yeasts may appear light to dark mauve (e.g., C. glabrata and other species).  

 

215085 BBL CHROMagar™ Listeria ( 100mm plates) 20

$92.66

  "BBL CHROMagar Listeria has been validated by the AOAC™ Research Institute under the Performance Tested MethodsSM Program for the analysis of raw ground beef, smoked salmon, lettuce and Brie cheese when using FDA BAM, USDA FSIS, AOAC and ISO methods1-5 with no confirmatory biochemical tests required for the identification of Listeria monocytogenes / L. ivanovii. BBL CHROMagar Listeria is intended for the isolation, differentiation and identification of L. monocytogenes and L. ivanovii based on the formation of blue-green colonies surrounded by an opaque, white halo. The addition of a chromogenic and a phospholipid substrate in the medium facilitates the detection and differentiation of L. monocytogenes and L. ivanovii from other Listeria species and organisms.An advantage BBL CHROMagar Listeria has over recommended traditional media, such as Modified Oxford and Oxford, is the ability to distinguish L. monocytogenes and L. ivanovii from other Listeria species.

215084 BBL CHROMagar™ MRSA ( 100mm plates) 20

$148.25

  BBL CHROMagar MRSA is a selective and differential medium for the qualitative direct detection of nasal colonization by methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) to aid in the prevention and control of MRSA infections in healthcare settings. The test is performed on anterior nares swab specimens from patients and healthcare workers to screen for MRSA colonization.

  BBL CHROMagar MRSA is a selective and differential medium for the qualitative direct detection of nasal colonization by methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) to aid in the prevention and control of MRSA infections in healthcare settings. The test is performed on anterior nares swab specimens from patients and healthcare workers to screen for MRSA colonization.  

 

214984 BBL CHROMagar™ O157 20

$79.56

  "CHROMagar O157 is intended for the isolation, differentiation and presumptive identification of E. coli O157:H7. Due to the chromogenic substrates in the medium, colonies of E. coli O157:H7 produce a mauve color, thus allowing presumptive identification from the primary isolation plate and differentiation from other organisms. In samples with low numbers of E. coli O157:H7, enrichment methods may be helpful prior to inoculating medium."

214982 BBL CHROMagar™ Staph aureus ( 100mm plates ) 20

$44.88

  "BBL CHROMagar Staph aureus (prepared plated medium) has been validated by the AOAC™ Research Institute under the Performance Tested MethodsSM Program for the analysis of shell eggs, smoked salmon and cooked roast beef when using AOAC and ISO methods.1,2 Confirmatory testing of mauve-colored colonies obtained from the food matrices mentioned above is required.BBL CHROMagar Staph aureus is intended for the isolation, enumeration and identification of S. aureus based on the formation of mauve-colored colonies. The addition of chromogenic substrates to the medium facilitates the differentiation of S. aureus from other organisms."  

 

214983 BBL CHROMagar™ Salmonella 20

$79.56

  "BBL CHROMagar Salmonella is a selective and differential medium for the isolation and presumptive identification of Salmonella species from other coliform and non-coliform bacteria in clinical stool samples and a variety of food samples.BBL CHROMagar Salmonella has been validated by the AOAC™ Research Institute under the Performance Tested Methods program only for the analysis of raw ground beef, raw chicken, raw fish, lettuce and shell eggs. ISO, USDA FSIS and FDA BAM methods were used for method comparison testing. BBL CHROMagar Salmonella was found to be equivalent to the plated media recommended in the ISO, FDA and USDA methods.
