Chromogenic medium for direct ID of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Deliver rapid direct identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to contribute to early intervention and better patient management
Direct identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Patented chromogenic medium provides specific coloration for clear identification
High medical value for monitoring cystic fibrosis patients
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, the most pathogenic species of the Pseudomonas genus, is generally considered to be opportunistic. It is particularly known to infect the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients and is prevalent among other immunocompromised or weakened patients, such as those suffering from burns, cancer, HIV or those in intensive care. Multi-drug resistant strains are emerging, so early detection and treatment of P. aeruginosa infection is essential.
The easy-to-use CHROMID® range of chromogenic media offers rapid and reliable detection and identification of microorganisms. With CHROMID® P. aeruginosa, clear, direct identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa is possible in within 24 hours based on specific violet coloration of amino-peptidase-producing colonies.
Cystic fibrosis patient monitoringTOP
In the case of cystic fibrosis patients, effective monitoring of bacterial colonization of the respiratory tract is an essential measure for disease management. CHROMID® P. aeruginosa offers improved recognition of bacteria that often appear atypical on conventional media1.
