Supplier: CHROMagar
Package size: 25000 ml

Product information

CHROMagar MH Orientation is a chromogenic Mueller Hinton agar. This product was developed with the aim to speed up the time to results by combining the chromogenic differentiation of the species in the sample, and the antibiotic susceptibility test. This tool allows a same-day results in both fields, the identification and susceptibility, directly in the primary culture, contrary to the concomitant traditional protocol which takes 48 hours.


1. 2 in 1: It allows chromogenic identification and antibiotic susceptibility in the same plate. 


2. Fast Results: For many microorganisms/antibiotics, the results can be read just after overnight incubation. 


3. Easy Plate Reading: Thanks to the chromogenic reactions, diameters and/or inhibitions zones are clearly defined.

Comparison of the use of a cost effective method with 2 standardized methods to perform direct and repeatable susceptibility test in a microbiology laboratory
A new device Inoclic™ based on classical platinum wand-type inoculator system was studied for inoculation of a wide range of culture media. Inoclic™ device appears a convenient and valid alternative to agar diffusion or broth dilution to determine susceptibility of aerobic pathogens.
Evaluation of a new inoculum standardization device and a fast susceptibility testing medium for Staphylococcus aureus antimicrobial susceptibility testing
New device INOCLIC™ for inoculum preparation and standardization, and new rapid medium MHR-SIR™ were tested for Staphylococcus aureus A.S.T. Sixty five different clinical strains of S. aureus, including fifteen Methicillin-Resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains, were tested using two different methods for inoculum standardization: Inoclic device (i2a, Montpellier, France) versus standard 0.5 McFarland suspension according to CLSI guidelines. And two different culture media: classical Mueller-Hinton medium (MH, i2a, Montpellier, France) versus fast Mueller-Hinton medium (MHR-SIR™, i2a, Montpellier, France).
