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, NutriSelect Basic   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, NutriSelect Plus 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.
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.
62634 LST-MUG Broth for microbiology, NutriSelect Plus   Fluorescent method for the detection of E. coli.
LST-MUG broth is a growth media, which is used for the selective detection and differentiation of Escherichia coli in water samples.
63014 MacConkey MUG Agar for microbiology, NutriSelect Plus   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, NutriSelect Plus 4-Methylumbelliferyl β-D-Glucuronide Escherichia coli Broth Used for the detection of E. coli by a fluorogenic procedure.
51489 Rapid Coliform ChromoSelect Broth for microbiology, NutriSelect Plus Coliform Rapid ChromoSelect Broth Rapid Coliform ChromoSelect 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.
