Chromogenic Media

Culture media for the simple and fast detection of bacteria using chromogenic substrates. The chromogenic mixture contains chromogenic substrates as Salmon-GAL, X-Gal, X-glucuronide, etc. Certain enzymes, produced by some bacteria, cleave these substrates, resulting in the different coloration of certain bacteria colonies.

85927 ECC ChromoSelect Selective Agar for microbiology E. coli-Coliform Selective Agar ChromoSelect ECC Selective Agar ChromoSelect HiCrome ECC Selective Agar is a selective medium recommended for the simultaneous detection of Escherichia coli and coliforms in water and food samples. The ingredients help even the sublethally injured coliforms to grow rapidly, Tergitol inhibits Gram-positive as well as some Gram-negative bacteria other than coliforms. The chromogenic mixture contains two chromogenic substrates as Salmon-GAL and X-glucuronide. The enzyme β-D-galactosidase produced by coliforms cleaves Salmon-GAL, resulting in the salmon-to-red coloration of coliform colonies. The enzyme β-D-glucuronidase produced by E. coli, cleaves X-glucuronide. E. coli forms dark blue-to-violet colored colonies due to cleavage of both Salmon-GAL and X-glucuronide. The addition of tryptophan improves the indole reaction. To confirm E. coli, add a drop of Kovac′s reagent (Catalog No. 60983) on the dark blue-to-violet colony. Formation of cherry-red color indicates the positive reaction.

Most of the Escherichia coli strains can be differentiated from other coliforms by the presence of enzyme glucuronidase which is highly specific for Escherichia coli. Escherichia coli cells absorb X-glucuronide and the intracellular glucuronidase splits the bond between the chromophore and the glucuronide. The released chromophore gives the blue coloration of the colonies.

83339 Mac Conkey-Sorbitol ChromoSelect Agar for microbiology Mac Conkey-sorbitol Agar ChromoSelect SMAC Agar ChromoSelect Sorbitol MacConkey Agar ChromoSelect HiCrome MacConkey Sorbitol Agar is recommended for selective isolation of Escherichia coli 0157:H7 from food and animal feeding stuffs. MacConkey Sorbitol Agar is based on the formulation described by Rappaport and Henigh. The medium contains sorbitol instead of lactose and it is recommended for the detection of enteropathogenic strains of E. coli 0157:H7 which ferments lactose but does not ferment sorbitol and hence produce colorless colonies. Sorbitol fermenting strains of E. coli produce pink-red colonies. The red color is due to production of acid from sorbitol, absorption of neutral red and a subsequent color change of the dye when pH of the medium falls below 6.8. E. coli 0157:H7 has been recognised as a cause of haemorrhagic colitis. B.C. indicator is added to detect the presence of an enzyme β-D-glucuronidase which is specific for E. coli. Stranins of E. coli possessing β-D-glucuronidase appear as blue colored colonies on the medium. Enteropathogenic strains of E. coli 0157 do not possess beta-D-glucuronidase activity and thus produce colorless colonies. E. coli fermenting sorbitol and possessing beta-D-glucuronidase activity produce purple colored colonies. Most of the gram-positive organisms are inhibited by crystal violet and bile salts. Addition of Tellurite-Cefixime Supplement makes the medium selective. Potassium Tellurite selects the serogroups 0157 from other E. coli serogroups and inhibits Aeromonas species and Providencia species. Cefixime inhibits Proteus species.
