EUCAST Recommended Strains for Routine and Extended Internal QC

The Selectrol® range from TCS Biosciences Ltd now includes all QC strains required to meet routine and extended internal quality control as recommended by EUCAST*.

Selectrol discs are freeze-dried for easy storage and, when reconstituted, will provide cultures with characteristic reactions. The discs are also water soluble and can, therefore, be inoculated directly onto solid or into liquid culture media. The vials are sealed under vacuum, and contain self-indicating silica gel providing visible indication that the discs remain moisture-free.
