Available models

Baird Parker RPF (RPF = Rabbit Plasma Fibrinogen) Agar is used for the direct detection and enumeration of coagulase positive staphylococci. The medium has the advantage of considerably reducing the number of confirmation tests for the presence of coagulase positive staphylococci particularly when atypical colonies are observed on other selective media. The medium allows the simultaneous enumeration and confirmation to be performed in a single operation.

COMPASS® Listeria constitutes a method constitutes a method for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes and of Listeria spp, and a method for the enumeration of Listeria monocytogenes in food products, and in environmental samples even heavily contaminated.
The method COMPASS® Listeria is used in the context of the alternative rapid method of detection of L. monocytogenes, in human food products and environmental samples.
It is characterized by one sole step in selective enrichment ½ Fraser broth, followed by a re-inoculation onto COMPASS Listeria Agar. The method is certified NF VALIDATION, under the reference N° BKR 23/02-11/02.
The method COMPASS® Listeria agar can also be used within the context of the alternative rapid method of enumeration of L. monocytogenes for all human foods and for environmental samples, by inoculation of one plate either on the surface or as a pour plate. It is officially certified by AFNOR Certification, under the reference number BKR 23/05-12/07.

IRIS Salmonella® is an alternative research method of Salmonellae in human food and feeds, and environmental sample (except primary production samples).

Studies performed on IRIS Salmonella® Agar show a high specificity for the detection of Salmonellae including atypical species and serovars, which is a source of confusion on other medium.

The detection of Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi, lactose-positive Salmonellae (Salmonella Senftenberg and subspecies S. arizonae and S. diarizonae), saccharose-positive strains are ensured.

The media allows the detection of non-motile serovars (S. Pullorum and S. Gallinarum) or monophasic strains. IRIS Salmonella® Agar allows also the detection of strains which show a light or absence of esterasic activity on other medium (Salmonella bongori, Salmonella Dublin and Atento, certain strains of S. enterica, S. houtenae and S. diarizonae subspecies).

IRIS Salmonella® method is officially certified by AFNOR Certification, under the reference number BKR 23/07-10/11, for all human and animal food products and production and production environment samples (excluding primary production environment samples).

IRIS Salmonella® is also validated for the detection of Salmonellae in samples from 50 g to 375 g for milk powder, including infant milk with and without probiotics and from 50 g to 125 g for flours and croquettes in animal feedstuffs.

BT01108 - CONFIRM’ Salmonella

CONFIRM’ Salmonella is a latex agglutination test that allows for the confirmation of presumed positive colonies of Salmonella, after purification.
CONFIRM’ Salmonella is also used as a means of confirmation in the context of the rapid, alternative method of Salmonella detection (IRIS Salmonella®), without a purification step, directly from a characteristic magenta colony isolated on IRIS media.
The IRIS Salmonella® method of Salmonella detection is certified by AFNOR Certification, under Attestation N° BKR 23/07 – 10/11.

EASY STAPH is an alternative method for the enumeration of coagulase positive Staphylococci in food products, in animal feeds and in environmental samples. Devoid of the need for confirmation, the method allows count of pathogenic staphylococci in 22 hours instead of the usual 48 hours in the case of the standardized method NF EN ISO 6888-2. The media support the use of surface inoculation, in depth or by the Spiral method. 
For all products destined for human consumption, the method is certified NF VALIDATION, under the Attestation N°BKR 23/10 – 12/15.

Microplate MUD/SF allows the practical identification and enumeration of intestinal enterococci in water, according to NF EN ISO 7899-1.
The use of microtiter plates, with wells containing a specifically developed medium, was conceived for use in the analysis of several types of water, notably swimming and beach water in salt and fresh water, surface (still) water and post-treatment water. The method is applicable to all water samples, including those rich in suspended matter. For the enumeration of enterococci, the microtiter technique with MUD has been recognized as the most specific, precise, and rapid of all previously used methods. This technique represents an important evolution as regards to existing technologies for enterococci, which among the indicator microorganisms of fecal contamination, present a particular interest in water quality controls.

Packaging

Kit MUD/SF:
BT00308 - 25 microplates + 25 sterile transparent adhesive covers

Microplate MUG/EC allows the practical identification and enumeration of Escherichia coli in water, according to ISO standard NF EN ISO 9308-3. 
The use of microtiter plates, with wells containing a specifically developed medium, was conceived for use in the analysis of several types of water, notably swimming and beach water in salt and fresh water, surface (still) water and post-treatment water. The method is applicable to all water samples, including those rich in suspended matter. For the enumeration of Escherichia coli, the microtiter technique with MUG has been recognized as a more specific, precise, and rapid compared to previously used method. By virtue of its role as an indicator microorganism of fecal contamination, this bacteria is of special interest due to its exclusively intestinal origin, which confers on it a more particular status as a priority bioindicator in water quality controls.
