HardyCHROM™ BluEcoli™ Urine Biplate (Blood Agar/Chromogenic E. coli), for detection of E. coli, 10ml fill per side, 15x100mm, order by the package of 10, by Hardy Diagnostics

Ideal for Urine Cultures!

BluEcoli™ Urine Biplate is a urine culture media, consisting of Blood Agar on one side and BluEcoli™ Agar on the other side, which is used for the isolation of urinary pathogens and for the identification of E. coli.

Features and Benefits:

  • A revolutionary agar bi-plate for screening urine specimens for E. coli, which causes about 85% of all urinary tract infections (UTI).

  • Blood Agar (side 1) is recommended as a primary plating medium when culturing urine specimens.

  • BluEcoli™ (side 2) is a urine culture medium used for the culture and isolation of urinary pathogens and for the identification of E. coli which turns blue within 24 hours by using chromogenic substrates.

  • Inoculate both sides of the biplate with the urine specimen. If the infecting organism is E. coli, the colonies on the chromogenic side of the biplate will turn blue.

  • The blue color of E. coli is confirmatory! No further confirmation or indole testing is required. Save time and money by not using an expensive identification system. All other gram negative bacteria will appear as they would on a MacConkey plate (pink for lactose fermentors and clear for non-fermentors).

  • With the BluEcoli™ Urine Biplate, you can select a colony from the blood agar side of the biplate for susceptibility testing.

  • Helpful in spotting mixed infections.
