InTray™ Colorex™ KPC (KPC)


Colorex™ KPC is a selective and differential chromogenic medium containing a carbapenem selective agent intended for use in obtaining a pure culture of gram-negative bacteria expressing reduced susceptibility to carbapenem-class antibiotics. The test can be performed with samples of composed of mixed populations of bacteria, e.g stool, biological fluids, surface streaks, etc. The InTray™ Colorex™ KPC inhibits the growth of yeasts, mold, and fungi, resulting in 100% sensitivity and 98.4% selectivity for the growth of gram-negative bacteria expressing reduced susceptibility to carbapenem class antibiotics.
