Colorex™ Acinetobacter is a chromogenic medium for the detection of Acinetobacter spp. Positive colonies exhibit a distinct red colouration with a pale grey centre enabling easy interpretation amongst blue, violet or colourless colonies that may be produced by other Gram –ve bacteria. Gram +ve bacteria and yeast are inhibited on this medium. Some Pseudomonas and Burkholderia spp. may grow on this medium producing pale red colonies but are readily distinguishable due to differences in colonial morphology compared to the Acinetobacter spp.
