Rapid Cultural Testing Methods for Visual Differentiation and Identification of Bacteria

MilliporeSigma makes available rapid cultural testing techniques by providing chromogenic media as well as fluorogenic media (Fluorocult® and Readycult®) to detect certain microorganisms rapidly and reliably in water and food. Chromogenic or fluorogenic substrates are digested by specific enzymes of certain target microorganisms, resulting in a change of color or in fluorescence. These substrates thus offer a powerful alternative to conventional microbiological methods for rapid and sensitive detection of bacteria. MilliporeSigma has developed a range of chromogenic and fluorogenic media to enable a clear and rapid differentiation:

Readycult® Coliforms
Fluorogenic Media: Fluorocult® and Readycult®

Fluorocult® and Readycult® are MilliporeSigma’s fluorogenic culture media brands for reliable and rapid cultural detection of microorganisms.
