New product: CHROMagar Serratia


For detection of Serratia marcescens 

Serratia species are implicated in nosocomial infections. In several countries, Serratia marcescens is frequently associated with epidemics in intensive care units in particular in neonatal and pediatric units. 

Surveillance of nosocomial infections requires effective recovery of clinical isolates from faeces, wound exudates and respiratory samples to prevent problems of cross infection and potentially fatal infections.

In addition, S. marcescens is able to survive days to months on surfaces, distilled water and hand soap, making it an important pathogen in nosocomial infections and sporadic epidemics.

In this context, CHROMagarTM has developed CHROMagarTM Serratia, a culture medium perfectly suited to the search for S. marcescens in faeces.
