New Line of Enrichment and Transport Medias
Puritan Medical Products, North America’s largest manufacturer of swabs and specimen collection devices, announces the release of four new prepared microbiology medias:
- Cary-Blair: A transport medium for the preservation of fecal and rectal specimens containing enteric pathogenic bacteria. It is another modification of Liquid Stuarts, but with a focus on fecal specimens collected from rectal swabs. This media is used to detect enteric pathogens, such as salmonella, listeria, and e. coli.
- MRSA: An enrichment medium designed specifically for detection of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
- LIM Broth: An enrichment medium used for detection of Group B strep in pregnant women.
- Regan-Lowe: A semi-solid transport medium used for Bordetella pertussis (whooping cough). Charcoal is used in this media, which aids in facilitating growth.
