General description

Listeria agar acc. OTTAVIANI and AGOSTI contains the chromogenic compound 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl-β-D-glucopyranoside, which is a substrate for the detection of β-glucosidase. This enzyme is common in all Listeria that appears as blue-green colored colonies on the medium. Differentiation of Listeria monocytogenes from non-pathogenic Listeria sp. is achieved through the production of a phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (PI-PLC). Listeria monocytogenes hydrolyses the specific purified substrate added to the medium producing an opaque halo around the colonies. Most Listeria ivanovii also produce an opaque halo around the colonies after 48 h incubation. The inhibitors in the medium reduce the growth of the majority of concomitant gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens, as well as of yeasts and fungi. Agar is the solidifying agent, while lithium chloride, nalidixic acid, and cycloheximide provide selectivity.

Application

ChromoCult® Listeria agar (base) is used for the isolation and differentiation of Listeria monocytogenes and other Listeria sp. from food and animal feed, environmental samples in the area of food production and food handling, and other materials.
