Evaluation of a variant of MacConkey's medium suppressing Proteus growth


, : Evaluation of a variant of MacConkey's medium suppressing Proteus growth. Ceskoslovenska Epidemiologie, Mikrobiologie, Imunologie 30(6): 356-358

A variant of MacConkey's dish medium without NaCl evidently exerts a high degree of inhibition on the trailing growth of Proteus.

The performance of BBL CHROMagar O157 (CHROM) versus that of sorbitol-MacConkey (SMAC) media for detection of Escherichia coli O157 was determined for a 3-month period. Results for 27/3,116 (0.9%) stool cultures were positive. CHROM had a higher s...
