InTray® COLOREX™ ESBL 20pk
InTray COLOREX ESBL allows for simultaneous growth, observation and chromogenic differentiation of Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase producing gram-negative bacteria. This makes preliminary detection easy by producing distinctive colony color and morphology between bacteria expressing ESBL. Additionally, the growth of yeasts, mold, fungi and all non-ESBL bacteria are inhibited resulting in a sensitivity of 99.2% and a specificity of 89%.

Colorex™ ESBL is not intended for use in the identification of colonization with extended-spectrum beta-lactam-resistant bacteria to aid in the prevention and control of ESBL-resistance in healthcare settings.
Colorex™ ESBL is not intended to diagnose infections by extended-spectrum beta-lactam-resistant bacteria, guide or monitor treatment for infections, or provide susceptibility results to extended-spectrum beta-lactam. Sub-culture is necessary for bacterial identification and susceptibility testing.
