A culture medium is a nutritive preparation that allows the growth of isolated colonies of microorganisms (bacteria, yeast or mold). It is the first step for their identification.
Chromogenic culture media ensure the direct isolation and reliable, rapid identification of bacteria. Among other things, they are used to screen patients infected with multiresistant bacteria responsible for healthcare-associated infections.
The development of chromogenic culture media has given a new impetus to this traditional tool, delivering results that are rapid, reliable and easy to interpret.
We have more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing culture media. Our culture media production site in Craponne (France) is the largest in Europe.
As the European leader for the production of pre-poured media (PPM), both conventional and chromogenic, we offer an extensive range of culture media (over 100 products available in different forms: Petri plates, tubes, vials).
bioMérieux is a pioneer in the development of chromogenic culture media.
