Our Chromogenic Media Experience For Your Microbial Testing


CHROMagar, pioneer since 1979

Inventor and Pioneer since 1979 in chromogenic media technology, Dr Rambach founded CHROMagar in 1993 which provides innovative chromogenic culture media solutions, designed to improve and simplify traditional culture techniques.

Established in the heart of Paris (France), not far from the famous Pasteur Institute where Dr. Rambach began his research career, CHROMagar is at the cutting edge of a diagnostic field that developed out of Dr. Rambach’s pioneering research in the late 1970’s.

Today, CHROMagar supplies the widest range of chromogenic culture media available, covering applications in clinical bacteriology, industrial microbiology, quality control for food and beverage industries, water testing and environmental monitoring... among other fields. These media allow for a quicker and simpler detection of key clinical and food-borne pathogens
