Fluorogenic Media

Culture media for the simple and fast detection of E. coli or other organisms using fluorescence substrates. E. coli, for example, can be detected using the MUG (glucuronidase) test and confirmed with a positive indole test. ß-D-glucoronidase, which is produced by E. coli, cleaves 4-Methylumbelliferyl-ß-D-glucuronide to 4-methylumbelliferone and glucuronide. The fluorogen 4-methylumbelliferone can be detected under a long wavelength UV lamp.

16016 BRILA MUG Broth for microbiology   In the detection of E. coli and coliforms. Bile and brilliant green extensively inhibit the growth of accompanying flora, in particular gram-positive microorganisms. The presence of E. coli results in fluorescence in the UV. A positive indole test and possibly gas formation from lactose fermentation provide confirmation.
The broth can be used in conjunction with the MPN method for E. coli and coliform enumeration in the water of bathing areas.
09142 ECD ChromoSelect Agar with MUG for microbiology ECD Agar ChromoSelect with MUG For the detection of Escherichia coli in water and food samples by using a combination of chromogenic and fluorogenic substrate.
44657 ECD MUG Agar for microbiology   The bile-salt mixture in this E. coli Direct Agar extensively inhibits the non-obligatory intestinal accompanying flora. Fluorescence in the UV and a positive indole test demonstrate the presence of E. coli in the colonies.
44782 E. coli O157:H7 MUG Agar for microbiology   Selective agar for the isolation and differentiation of enterohaemorrhagic (EHEC) E. coli O157:H7-strains from food and clinical material.
78996 HiFluoro Pseudomonas Agar Base for microbiology Pseudomonas Agar Base HiFluoro Hifluoro Pseudomonas Agar base is used as a selective medium for the isolation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from pus, sputum, and drains etc. Pseudomonas aeruginosa breaks the fluorogenic compound to release the fluorogen which produces a visible fluorescence under long wave UV light.
62634 LST-MUG Broth for microbiology   Fluorescent method for the detection of E. coli.
63014 MacConkey MUG Agar for microbiology   For the isolation of Salmonella, Shigella and coliform bacteria, in particular E. coli, from diverse material.
Bile salts and crystal violet extensively inhibit the Gram-positive flora. The presence of lactose and neutral red indicate lactose-positive colonies from which E. coli can be identified by fluorescence in the UV.
M1678 MUG EC broth for microbiology 4-Methylumbelliferyl β-D-Glucuronide Escherichia coli Broth Used for the detection of E. coli by a fluorogenic procedure.
17165 MUG Tryptone Soya Agar for microbiology CASO MUG Agar Soybean Casein digest MUG Agar Tryptone Soya MUG Agar For cultivation of fastidious and nonfastidious microorganisms by fluorogenic method.
51413 Plate Count MUG Agar for microbiology MUG PCA MUG Plate Count Agar Plate Count MUG Agar is used for determination of plate count of microorganisms in milk and other dairy products by fluorogenic method.
51489 Rapid Coliform ChromoSelect Broth for microbiology Coliform Rapid ChromoSelect Broth Rapid HiColiform Broth is used for detection and conformation of Escherichia coli and coliforms on the basics of enzyme substrate reaction from water samples, using a combination of chromogenic and fluorogenic substrate.
95273 VRB MUG Agar for microbiology Violet Red Bile Lactose MUG Agar Selective medium for the detection and enumeration of coliform bacteria, in particular E. coli. Gram-positive accompanying flora are extensively inhibited by crystalviolet and bile salts. A color-change to red indicates lactose-positive colonies, within which E. coli can be demonstrated by fluorescence in the UV.
