InTray® COLOREX™ Salmonella 20pk
Colorex™ Salmonella allows for simultaneous growth, detection and chromogenic differentiation of Salmonella species, including S. typhi and S. paratyphi, traditionally taken from clinical stool specimens. Additionally, Colorex Salmonella inhibits the growth of yeasts, mold and fungi – resulting in 100% sensitivity and 89% specificity for Salmonella compared to 78% with traditional Hektoen Agar.

FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY.
For in vitro diagnostic use. Some Pseudomonas may have similar mauve colony aspect and can be eliminated by an oxidase test. Many S. typhi can be detected after 24-48h incubation as mauve variable size colonies. Final identification must be done by biochemistry and serology.
