Colorex™ Campylobacter

Colorex™ Campylobacter

Colorex™ Campylobacter is a chromogenic media for the isolation and presumptive identification of Campylobacter spp, from clinical specimens and food samples. Any presumptive Campylobacter colonies will produce a red colouration whilst most other organisms will be inhibited. Typical colour reactions are as follows – Campylobacter jejuni – Red colonies; Campylobacter coli – Red colonies; Campylobacter lari – Red colonies; Other Gram –ve bacteria – Blue colonies or inhibited; Gram +ve bacteria & yeasts – Inhibited. Presumptive positive Campylobacter colonies must be confirmed using serological and biochemical techniques according to the method / procedure being followed.
