Lab M launches new C. sakazakii detection media

28th September 2010

Lab M has announced the launch of a new media range which allows life scientists to detect and monitor the opportunistic pathogen Cronobacter sakazakii (C. sakazakii) more easily.

The CSEB (ISO) enrichment broth, Harlequin CSIM (ISO) isolation medium and Harlequin CSA-DFI formulation have been designed to enrich and differentiate the bacteria from other organisms found in milk and related products.

This is accomplished by affecting certain chemicals found within C. sakazakii, which causes the bacteria to take on a different colour from other molecules.

Lab M states that this makes its new products useful in detecting the pathogen, which can cause meningitis, necrotising enterocolitis and sepsis among newborns.

The company said: "In developing specific Harlequin chromogenic media, supported by a selective enrichment broth, Lab M provides the three key elements which ensure all current C. sakazakii testing protocols are covered."

Earlier this month, the firm launched two new media products which allow for the isolation of yeasts and moulds in foodstuffs.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-800086972-ADNFCR
