Two new chromogenic media

Conda has developed two new chromogenic media for the detection and further study of microbiological growth trought color reaction and differentiation.

VIBRIO CHROMOGENIC AGAR Cat. 2054 is recommended for isolation and selective differentiation of Vibrio species based on color development.

The genus Vibrio consists of micro-organisms whose natural habitat is marine and fluvial ecosystems. They are frequently isolated from marine water, especially in warmer months and when the water temperature is higher than 17ºC.  Vibrio species are mainly responsible for causing cholera and food poisoning in humans. Vibrio cholerae causes secretory diarrhea (cholera) due to the intake of contaminated food such as raw oysters. Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a major cause of food borne infections, causing food poisoning. In addition, other species as for example, V. alginolyticus, extra intestinal infections such as otitis, and infections of injury, septicemia and meningitis.

m-EI CHROMOGENIC AGAR BASE, MODIFIED Cat. 2050 is recommended for the isolation and differentiation of Enterococcus faecium and Enterococcus faecalis.

This medium is a modification of the mEI cromogenic Agar base, where another chromogenic substrate is added. This addition allows the differentiation of Enterococcus faecium and Enterococcus faecalis.
