The BBL® CHROMager® Staph aureus utilizes an enzymatic reaction to isolate and identify Staphylococcus aureus without additional confirmatory testing. The process produces easy-to-identify mauve-colored colonies with the growth of Staphylococcus aureus. It also requires less technologist analysis, especially with colonies exhibiting weak hemolysis or atypical appearances. BBL CHROMager Staph aureus eliminates the need to subculture to a nonselective medium, which enhances workflow and allows susceptibility results to be reported earlier.
