Product information

Over recent years, the occurrence of hospital infections caused by methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been increasing steadily, representing around 20 to 55% of the isolates in Europe and in the USA.

  1. Fast: MRSA mauve Colonies in 18-24h.
  2. Reliable: CHROMagar MRSA, introduced in 2002, was the first chromogenic medium for MRSA detection. It lead to such significant reductions in both, the response time and laboratory workload, that it allowed an absolutely necessary wide-scale patient screening.
  3. Rapidly detect MRSA strains with heterogeneous resistance with better sensitivity than oxacillin.
  4. High sensitivity: The medium exhibits sensitivity and specificity values close to 100%. CHROMagar MRSA allows an accurate detection of MRSA with a higher level of sensitivity than oxacillin containing media.
  5. Easy interpretation: intense mauve colony colour.
