Abstract A new chromogenic plate medium, CHROMagar Orientation, was evaluated for use in the differentiation and presumptive identification oroentation gram-negative bacilli and Enterococcus species by a multipoint inoculation replicator technique.

See J Clin Microbiol Aug;35 8: Isolation of a Variety of Microrganisms: This study, carried with over 20 classical antimicrobial agents, concluded that the use of our medium with Etest can provide same day oridntation.

In this case also as in the VAP, the same-day identification and susceptibility results can confirm the empirical therapy, or help in the decision to change it. Moreover, since it is easy to differentiate mixed flora on CHROMagar Orientation, antimicrobial susceptibility tests can be performed directly from primary isolates without the need of subcultures.

CHROMagar Orientation and CHROMagar MRSA

It allows chromogenic identification and antibiotic susceptibility in the same plate. Similarity in color resulted in failure to discriminate accurately between Klebsiella, Enterobacter, and Citrobacter species.

These mixed growths were not obvious on the routine susceptibility testing medium Isosensitest.

When used in a replicator system, it easily detected mixed growths of organisms which may have otherwise led to false antibiotic susceptibility results. This product was developed with the aim to speed up the time to results by combining the chromogenic differentiation of the species in oriejtation sample, and the antibiotic susceptibility test. However, these species could be readily differentiated from other members of the family Enterobacteriaceae. Six control American Type Culture Collection strains were also included with the testing to ensure quality control of the media.

Clinical Microbiology

Shortening the period in which empirical therapy can be optimized results in better outcomes. CHROMagar Orientation can also be used to differentiate various microrganisms in other infected areas; e.
