HardyCHROM™ Candida + auris, 18ml, 15x100mm plate, pack of 10, by Hardy Diagnostics

Hardy Diagnostics HardyCHROM™ Candida + auris is recommended for the selective isolation and differential identification of Candida species. The medium allows for the differentiation of C. albicans, C. tropicalis, C. krusei, and C. auris based on colony morphology, color, and positive UV fluorescence.

Colonies of Candida glabrata can be subbed directly to Rapid Trehalose Fermentation Broth (Cat. no. Z205) or GlabrataQuick (Cat. no. Z298) for confirmation

Features and Benefits:

  • Easy colony detection
    Candida auris produces white colonies with teal to teal-green “bullseye” centers that are positive for UV fluorescence for easy differentiation from other Candida species

  • Colonies stand out
    Bright, vivid color development against a white background for effortless interpretation

  • Highly selective
    Useful as an aid for differentiating other clinically relevant Candida species (C. albicans, C. tropicalis, C. krusei). Inhibitory to most bacteria common to mixed specimens (e.g. skin, throat, axilla, urogenital tract, or rectal swabs, etc.)

  • Fast development
    Most strains will exhibit colors within 48 hours

See the Instructions for Use (IFU) below (under Technical Information) for the complete procedure with color photos.

The HardyCHROM™ plates use optically clear, heavy-duty polystyrene for distortion-free viewing and reduced breakage during shipping. Receive your pack in a "breathable" sleeve of 10 plates per bag that prevents the buildup of condensation and excess moisture.

This media is to be stored and incubated in the dark. If you have a light in your refrigerator, incubator, or you leave the media exposed to light on the benchtop, Hardy Diagnostics offers free Blok-Boxes. Blok-Box is a reusable cardboard box that holds one sleeve of ten Petri plates.

Please ask Customer Service if you would like a free Blok-Box sent with your order. Customer Service – (800) 266-2222.
