| Listeria monocytogenes on ChromoCult® Listeria Selective Agar || |
Merck is pleased to announce the introduction of a new dehydrated chromogenic medium, ChromoCult® Listeria Selective Agar. This medium is used for the detection of Listeria and completes Merck's product portfolio for Listeria analyses. Listeria is widespread in nature and there are only a few foods where it is not found. Cheese, sausage, sliced packed salmon and smoked fish, salads and chilled convenience foods are all at particular risk of infection.
As Listeria monocytogenes is the most pathogenic of the species, testing for L. monocytogenes is mandatory. Merck's new ChromoCult® Listeria Selective Agar (Base) 100427.0500 with Supplements 100432.0010 and 100439.0010 increase the reliability of detecting this microorganism.
