Lastly, new software AI/IA can accurately pre-assess growth on any manufacturer's chromogenic
agar for faster more accurate results, segregating presumptive positive cultures that may be missed on manual reading.
Different clinical samples other than the blood were cultured on MacConkey's agar plates number 3 (CM 0115) (Oxoid Ltd., Basingstoke, Hampshire, England) and the chromogenic
media Chrom ID OXA-48 agar plates (BioMerieux, France).
CHROMagar MRSA-Evaluation of a New Chromogenic
Medium for Isolation of MRSA.
agar has the advantage of identifying directly a target bacterium according to the morphology and chromogenic
characteristic of its colony.
CHROMagar supplies the widest range of chromogenic
culture media available, covering applications in clinical bacteriology, industrial microbiology, and quality control for food and beverage industries, water testing and environmental monitoring.
A previous study at our institution found discrepancies between Phoenix nitrocefin and a chromogenic
cephalosporin test in the determination of penicillinase activity (14), which led us to prospectively investigate these differences and to compare results with Phoenix MIC values for penicillin and ampicillin and to compare results with ampicillin disk diffusion.
The Bland-Altman bias plots for all anti-Xa measurements demonstrated a negative bias, indicating that lower levels were detected by chromogenic
methods, as compared with those obtained using LC-MS/ MS (Figure 1).
Strains that produce AY-glucosidase such as Enterococci and the Klebsiella-Enterobacter-Serratia group form blue colonies result from hydrolysis of glucoside a chromogenic
substrate incorporated in the medium.
The technology is compatible with FFPE specimens, conventional chromogenic
and fluorescent dyes, and is suitable for bright-field microscopy and multiplex analysis.
General topics include: smart inorganic materials systems, stimuli responsive polymers and gels, luminescent and chromogenic
materials systems, non-volatile memory devices, metamaterials, graphene, and multifunctional materials for energy harvesting.
US Patent 8,287,767 (October 16, 2012), "Amorphous Polymers with Pendant Chromogenic
Groups," Simona Percec, and Susan H.
Battleground Point #14, a 1999 chromogenic
print by Richard Misrach, starkly depicts a gracefully curving desert sand dune reflected perfectly in a vast shimmering temporary lake created by a flash flood in Nevada's Carson Sink.
