InTray COLOREX ESBL prepared plated culture media allows for simultaneous growth, observation and chromogenic differentiation of Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase producing gram-negative bacteria. This makes preliminary detection easy by producing distinctive colony color and morphology between bacteria expressing ESBL. Additionally, the growth of yeasts, mold, fungi and all non-ESBL bacteria are inhibited resulting in a sensitivity of 99.2% and a specificity of 89%.
Specially formulated medium promotes growth and chromogenic differentiation

Colorex™ ESBL Agar is a selective and differential chromogenic medium, containing an extended-spectrum beta-lactam selective agent, intended for use as a plating technique to obtain a pure culture of Enterobacteriaceae that produce extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL). The InTray™ Colorex™ ESBL inhibits the growth of yeasts, mold, fungi, and non-ESBL bacteria
Colorex™ ESBL is not intended for use in the identification of colonization with extended-spectrum beta-lactam-resistant bacteria to aid in the prevention and control of ESBL-resistance in healthcare settings.
Colorex™ ESBL is not intended to diagnose infections by extended-spectrum beta-lactam-resistant bacteria, guide or monitor treatment for infections, or provide susceptibility results to extended-spectrum beta-lactam. Sub-culture is necessary for bacterial identification and susceptibility testing.
