Microbiology

 

The company specialises in innovative identification methods to detect microorganisms. We have developed a number of chromogenic media for the efficient identification of Coliform bacteria, Salmonella, Candida albicans and Mycoplasma agalactiae and bovis. We are currently undertaking research to develop rapid methods for identification of microorganisms involved in Urinary Tract Infections.

 

Products

Mycoplasma Detection Kit

 

1103A               25 test kit

1103B               _50 test kit

A Chromogenic test for the rapid detection of Mycoplasma agalactiae and Mycoplasma bovis. The test involves using the novel PPR ester substrate. When a solution of this substrate is added to colonies of either M. bovis or M. agalactiae they become bright red within 30-60 min. 

  

Chromogenic Salmonella Agar (CSA)

 

1101                  Dehydrated powder for 50 plates

1104                  10 prepared agar plates

Chromogenic medium for the detection of Salmonella species. Chromogenic Salmonella agar (CSA) is a modified base agar containing peptones and nutrient extracts and incorporates the novel PPR esterase substrate. The growth of Salmonella spp. on this agar results in the hydrolysis of the ester to produce a brightly coloured phenol that remains within the colonies.  

 

Candida Diagnostic Agar (CDA)

 

1102                  Dehydrated powder for 50 plates

1105                  10 prepared agar plates 

Chromogenic medium for detecting Candida species. The agar is based upon a Sabouraud Dextrose formulation containing the PPR glucosaminide substrate. All strains of Candida albicans grown on this agar have produced deep pink/red spotted colonies within 24-48 hours of incubation at 37°C.

 

Chromogenic Coliform Agar (CCA)

 

1106                  Dehydrated powder for 50 plates

1107                  10 prepared agar plates

Chromogenic medium for detection of coliform bacteria, including Escherichia coli. Presence of coliforms may be used as an indication of the presence of pathogenic microorganisms of faecal origin. This agar incorporates the PPR chromogenic galactoside substrate. Growth of coliforms on this agar produces bright red colonies in contrast to a yellow background.
