Description

Colorex™ Salmonella agar is a chromogenic medium for selective isolation and differentiation of Salmonella species, e.g. Enterobacteriaceae and other enteric bacteria.With Colorex™ Salmonella medium, Salmonella spp. including S. typhi, are distinguishable by colony color. The test can be performed with samples of composed of mixed populations of bacteria, e.g stool, blood, biological fluids, surface streaks, etc. High sensitivity and specificity of the medium lead to a higher detection rate of Salmonella spp. Selective agents inhibit the growth of gram-positive organisms, yeasts, mold, fungi, and other bacteria, resulting in 100% sensitivity and 89% specificity for Salmonella compared to 78% specificity with traditional Hektoen Agar.Visual Results: Salmonella species - Mauve Other bacteria or coliforms – Blue, colorless or inhibited
