«The Enterobacteriaceae and coliform bacteria within this family represent two of the most common groups of indicator organism used by the food industry. In some countries, depending on regulatory requirements, the food industry has moved towards testing for Enterobacteriaceae.» ILSI Europe (International Life Sciences Institute)
The ISO 21528 specifies a method for the enumeration of Enterobacteriaceae, applicable to products intended for human consumption, feeding of animals, and environmental samples using VRBG as culture medium.
CHROMagar™, in collaboration with Dr. Marco Agosti, has developped a medium that drastically reduces the workload of the laboratory compared to the very labour intense traditional VRBG.
1. Easy differentiation between E. coli and other Enterobacteriaceae: Unlike with VRBG, with CHROMagar™ Enterobacteria you can easily differentiate E. coli from the rest of Enterobacteriaceae by the colour.
3. High sensitivity and specificity leading to a higher detection rate of Enterobacteriaceae.
