HardyCHROM™ MRSA Contact Plate for Surveillance in Medical Facilities
HardyCHROM™ MRSA contact plate is a new selective and differential culture medium that facilitates the isolation and identification of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from environmental surfaces. This new contact plate contains a chromogenic medium that aids in the prevention and control of MRSA infections in health care settings. MRSA strains grown in the presence of chromogenic substrates produce deep pink to magenta colonies.
Procedure: Simply touch the media to the test surface and incubate!
Cefoxitin is included in the formula to inhibit non-MRSA strains. Additional selective agents have been added to increase the sensitivity and specificity of the medium by inhibiting Gram negative organisms, yeast, and most other Gram positive cocci.
Note: HardyCHROM™ MRSA Contact Plate is not intended to diagnose clinical infections or to guide/monitor patient therapy. For laboratory use only.
