- RAPID'E.Coli O157:H7
- Catalog No.: 3564748
Pkg of 1, 100g makes 1.25L medium; need to add Novobiocin (3564610) at end conc of 10mg/L and potassium tellurite (end conc of 0.8mg/L). For potassium tellurite, we have no offer.
RAPID'E.coli O157:H7 Medium is a selective chromogenic agar for the detection, isolation, and presumptive identification of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in human food products and environmental samples.
Features and Benefits:
High specificity to E. coli O157 serotype H7.
Only 1 plate required per sample.
Results in 48 hr.
Certified NF VALIDATION according to the ISO 16140 standard and validated by AOAC.
RAPID'E.coli O157:H7 Medium provides laboratories with a rapid and cost-effective solution for E. coli O157:H7 detection, given that a single plate is required for each sample. The latex test for confirmation has been validated for use on isolated colonies grown on RAPID'E.coli plates.
Other Applications of RAPID'E.coli O157:H7 Medium:
As a second selective medium in different standardized protocols (for example, the ISO 16654 reference method) To confirm positive results obtained with the iQ-Check® E. coli O157:H7 PCR Detection Kit.
Easy-to-Read Results RAPID'E.coli O157:H7 medium permits the detection of E. coli O157 serotype H7 using specific chromogenic substrates and biochemical activities.
Typical E. coli O157:H7 (Sorbitol/SORB +, β-Glucuronidase/GLUC +) colonies are characteristically convex, 1?2 mm in diameter, and dark blue to black in color Atypical GLUC + E. coli O157:H7 are detected and present as dark blue to black colonies Atypical SORB + E. coli O157:H7 are detected and present as blue to turquoise blue colonies RAPID'E.coli O157:H7 Medium is very specific. Most other bacteria and yeasts are inhibited or produce a different color. The selectivity of RAPID'E.coli O157:H7 Medium can be improved by adding selective agents such as novobiocin and potassium tellurite
