30 years of innovation

One year of Celebration for 30 years of Experience !

Discover some abstracts of the speeches from 5 brilliant scientists invited for the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the 1st patented chromogenic media (Paris, September 12th, 2009).

Context:
The first chromogenic agar (for detection of  E.coli) was invented and patented by Dr. A. Rambach in 1979. The introduction of this medium triggered a revolution in microbial diagnosis and driven by the introduction of a whole range of media for the detection of key clinical & food borne pathogens. The use of chromogenic culture media for the detection of bacteria is increasing steadily despite the introduction of other (often molecular biology based) techniques. 
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of this technology, CHROMagar organised a symposium in Paris, around the history and the implementation of the chromogenic culture media.  The guests of this meeting were worldwide known scientists who contributed by their works to expand awareness, among the microbiology community, on the utility of this technology.  The meeting was held on September 12th 2009 (the exact 30th anniversary day).
