    Medium Description

    Gain flexibility using powder rather than ready to use plates: Use the entire pack, or just a portion if there is a need for a smaller number of plates. If kept under appropriate storage temperature, CHROMagarTM Staphylococcus has a more than 18 months of shelf life. This flexibility is essential to avoid the waste resulting from expired-unused plates. 

Please refer to our IFU and Material Safety data sheet for complete information about the medium.

Last Update:02-Feb-2021

Combining the performances of our technology, this three-sectors plate contains CHROMagarTM Staphylococcus, CHROMagarTM Streptococcus and CHROMagarTM Mastitis GN. With the high specificity of the three CHROMagarTM media, this tool allows a very wide differentiation spectrum of microorganisms, particularly interesting in complex matrices like milk from Mastitis cases or animal forensic samples. 

Pre-poured plates are now available in several countries in Europe, USA and Brazil. Ask your local distributor for more information.
