FAST AND ACCURATE DETECTION OF BACTERIA IN FOODS WITH OXOID CHROMOGENIC MEDIA
As one of the world’s leading suppliers of culture media, Oxoid is committed to the development of products that provide faster and easier bacterial identifications for the food industry. The use of innovative chromogenic substrates within the Oxoid Chromogenic Media range provides clearly visible answers on a single culture plate and often reduces or eliminates the need for further confirmatory testing.
