Description

Application

UTI ChromoSelect Agar is chromogenic differential medium for identification, differentiation, and conformation of enteric bacteria from specimens such as urine, water, or food which may contain large number of Proteus species as well as potentially pathogenic Gram-positive organisms. Based on these characteristics, modified UTI ChromoSelect Agar is suggested for use in place of MacConkey Agar.

Other Notes

Chromogenic medium for detecting and identifying Enterobacteria, Proteus species, and certain potentially pathogenic Gram-positive organisms.
