Product number: NCM3008

CASE is a selective chromogenic agar for the detection of Salmonella that can be used as part of the ISO 6579-1:2017 workflow. It is not intended for use in the diagnosis of disease or other conditions in humans.

CASE is a selective chromogenic agar for the detection of Salmonella. It utilizes a dual chromogenic system to differentiate between Salmonella and non-target organisms that grow on the agar. The first chromogen is a target for esterase activity present in Salmonella species. Utilization of this chromogen results in blue/green colonies. The second chromogen is a target for ß-glucosidase present in non-target organisms that are able to grow on the agar and also possess esterase activity. Utilization of the second chromogen masks the utilization of the first resulting in black colonies in non-Salmonella. All other organisms are either inhibited or grow colorless on the agar.

The media is able to detect non-motile Salmonella (S.pullorum and S.gallinarum) as well as monophasic variants (1,4,[5],12:i:-). The media is also able to detect serovars that present weak esterase activity (S.dublin), and lactose positive strains (S.arizonae).
