This is a chromogenic medium for the isolation and presumptive identification of Staphylococcus aureus. Mauve colonies indicate Staph aureus following incubation (18 – 24 hours) at 37°C, other organisms, if not inhibited, are indicated by blue or colourless colonies. Studies have suggested that this media has a specificity and sensitivity of 99.4% and 95.5% respectively (Gaillot et al 2000).
