bioMerieux Launches chromID™ Lmono, Rapid all-in-one Solution for L. monocytogenes Testing

chromID Lmono
chromID™ Lmono is a new chromogenic medium that enables the rapid enumeration, detection and presumptive identification of Listeria monocytogenes in food products and production environment samples. Both protocols are certified according to EN ISO 16140.
One day, one plate, one color for enumeration…
  • With chromID Lmono, the Listeria monocytogenes enumeration takes just one day for a confirmed result whereas the ISO method requires 4 days.


  • Only one plate is necessary for the pour plate enumeration when using chromID Lmono medium in bottles. Surface enumeration is performed with one plate less than all the existing methods used for enumeration of low numbers (< 10CFU/g).


  • On this new media, Listeria monocytogenes gives turquoise blue colonies with no associated halo, which facilitates reading.
The chromID Lmono enumeration methods reduce product release time and bring cost effectiveness and flexibility to low counts.

…and detection

The detection of L. monocytogenes gives results in one day after enrichment for both negative and confirmed positive samples. The turquoise blue colonies with no associated halo allow an easy reading for highly-contaminated samples.
