CHROMATIC MH for ID and MIC Directly from Clinical and Environmental Specimens

CHROMATIC MH Liofilchem chromogenic media

Chromogenic medium for the preliminary identification and susceptibility testing of bacteria directly from clinical and environmental specimens.

In the Intensive Care Unit the mortality rates associated with VAP (Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia), surgical site infections, intra-abdominal infections, indwelling catheter related infections, and sepsis are particularly high. Direct M.I.C. testing on CSF, positive blood culture bottles and other specimens from critical patients and direct M.I.C. on bronchial aspirates and respiratory secretions from patients with VAP, can result in timely and essential information to guide antimicrobial therapy ultimately reducing patient mortality and morbidity.

CHROMATIC MH is a chromogenic medium for the presumptive identification and susceptibility testing of bacteria directly from clinical and environmental specimens.

CHROMATIC MH can be used with antibiotic disks for the susceptibility testing of bacteria according to the Kirby-Bauer method and also with Liofilchem® MIC Test Strip for the determination of the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (M.I.C.) of an antimicrobial agent from clinical specimens.
