HardyCHROM™ SS NoPRO Agar, (for Salmonella and Shigella), a chromogenic medium for stool pathogen screening without false positives from Proteus 15x100mm plate, order by the package of 10, by Hardy Diagnostics

No Proteus, No Problem!

HardyCHROM™ SS NoPro (no-Proteus) Agar is recommended for the selective isolation and differentiation of Salmonella and Shigella spp. from stool. HardyCHROM™ SS NoPro Agar is intended as a primary screening tool to distinguish Salmonella and Shigella spp. from non-pathogenic enteric bacteria based on colony color, while inhibiting the growth and characteristic swarming of Proteus spp. The enhanced inhibition of Proteus reduces the expense involved in working up non-pathogens that could mimic enteric pathogens. Further species confirmation of suspect colonies via conventional or automated methods is recommended.

Features and Benefits:

  • Reduces costly false-positive work-ups, due to Proteus spp.!

  • Less colony picking, subculturing, and identifications

  • No need for TSI, LIA, KIA tubes

  • Reduces use of expensive ID cards

  • Reduces the number of plates for primary stool setup

  • Increased specificity
