Intelligent media

Chromogenic culture media provide a rapid and accurate method of isolating and enumerating target micro-organisms based on the detection of specific enzyme activities. Their development has been a significant advance in the field of microbiological media.

Chromogenic culture media provide a rapid and accurate method of isolating and enumerating target microorganisms based on the detection of specific enzyme activities. Not only do they enable faster detection of specific microorganisms compared with classical culture media, they also improve sensitivity. Depending on the media type and microorganism involved, identification may be accomplished without the need for sub-culture or confirmatory tests. The result? More efficient use of technologists’time, reduced cost of consumables and earlier reporting of results.

Chromogenic culture media have applications in many areas of microbiology and in this article we examine the reasons why not all chromogenic media are the same.
