Designed for simultaneous growth, observation, and chromogenic differentiation of gram-negative bacteria expressing carbapenem class antimicrobial resistance, e.g. Klebsiella pneumonia, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas. Make your preliminary detection easy with distinctive color differences between the growth of the selected species within as little as 18 – 24 hours. Additionally COLOREX KPC inhibits the growth of yeasts, mold and fungi – resulting in 100% sensitivity and 98.4% selectivity for the growth of gram-negative bacteria expressing reduced susceptibility to carbapenem class antibiotics.
