This medium conforms to the ALOA (agar Listeria acc. to Ottaviani & Agosti) medium, a selective medium for the isolation of Listeria monocytogenes in food (AFNOR-validated method). It also enables the testing, sampling and enumeration of Listeria monocytogenes and Listeria spp. in foodstuffs and other source materials. The rich base of the Chromocult® Listeria selective agar encourages excellent growth. The supplement of inhibitors stops most of the bacteria, yeast and fungi from growing. In contrast, Listeria is uninhibited in its growth, producing blue-green colonies; L. monocytogenes also form an opaque halo.
- Simple, safe evaluation
- ISO 11290 reference medium, AFNOR validated
- FDA/BAM recommended
