How does m-ColiBlue24® media work?
How m-ColiBlue24® media works
An enzymatic indicator in the medium causes non-fecal total coliform colonies grown on the m-ColiBlue24® medium to be red, while the E. coli (fecal coliform) colonies are blue. The selectivity of the enzymatic indicator eliminates the need for confirmation. The low false positive and false negative rates allow for the detection of at least 95% of all E. coli.. m-ColiBlue24® Broth enhances the growth rate of coliform bacteria and optimizes the recovery of stressed or injured organisms. Special inhibitors in the medium efficiently minimize the growth of non-coliform bacteria.
