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

Chromogenic Culture Media

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.

Inhibitory to most bacteria common to mixed specimens (e.g. skin, throat, axilla, urogenital tract, or rectal swabs, etc.)

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

Color readout Interpretation:

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

Features and Benefits:

  • Distinct color change read-out

  • Bright color development

  • Economically priced to save you money!

  • Compatible with automation

  • Most strains will exhibit colors within 48 hours

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