Enrichment media for use with the BAX® System

Testing for pathogens, especially at low levels, depends on growing the target microorganisms so they can be easily detected. It is therefore essential that the right enrichment media—with the right pH, nutrients and competitor organism inhibitors—are used to grow your target organisms. Selective media are also helpful for growing specific organisms that might not respond to general enrichment broths. Hygiena offers dehydrated culture media for the enrichment of pathogenic bacteria, and selective enrichment media to support specific growth of Listeria, E. coli O157:H7, STEC, and Salmonella. The bulk-powder media below are available to customers that want to take full advantage of the speed, flexibility, and convenience that select BAX® System assays have to offer. 


 

BAX® System Listeria media

A single selective enrichment broth optimized to detect Listeria with the BAX® System. The media provide nutrients and stable pH conditions to improve recovery from sponges and swabs used to sample food manufacturing environments.

The media enable next-day results for environmental samples tested with the BAX® System PCR Assay for Genus Listeria and Listeria monocytogenes (including the BAX® System X5).

Available as bulk powder (2.5 kg).

BAX® System MP media

Hygiena's MP media have been specified in the testing protocols approved by AOAC and AFNOR for using the BAX® System to detect E. coli O157:H7, STEC, and Salmonella in ground beef, beef trim, spinach, lettuce, and more.

This selective enrichment broth is available to customers who want to take full advantage of the speed and flexibility that the BAX® System has to offer for pathogenic E. coli and Salmonella enrichment and detection. Use this media to test for organisms individually or concurrently from a single enrichment.

Available as bulk powder (2.5 kg) or as StatMedia™ soluble packets(33.75 g).

StatMedia™ Soluble Packets

BAX® System MP Media in convenient, water-soluble packets.

These easy-to-use packets provide the same performance as powder but without the dust or ergonomic issues of handling bulk media. Other benefits include less hands-on time, less waste from expired batches of prepared broth, and reduced need for autoclaving. Packets are wrapped in a water-soluble film made from a polyvinyl alcohol resin. In warm water, the film dissolves within seconds. Because the soluble packets are gamma-irradiated, prepared broth does not require autoclaving when used within 3-4 hours. For longer storage, broth can be autoclaved and then refrigerated for up to two weeks.

Hygiena™ Dehydrated Culture Media (Buffered Peptone Water)

Buffered Peptone Water (BPW) is a non-selective pre-enrichment medium commonly used to help improve the recovery of injured Salmonella cells for the rapid detection of this pathogen in the food safety industry. 

Research has demonstrated that BPW also can be an effective pre-enrichment medium for the recovery of Cronobacter species (E. sakazakii) from food and environmental samples.

Available in 500g and 2.5kg formats.
