C. diff Banana Broth, 16x100mm tube, 10ml fill, K226.

C. diff Banana Broth™ (Clostridium difficile Brucella Broth with Thioglycolic Acid and L-cystine or CDBB-TC) is recommended for the culture and recovery of Clostridium difficile spores and vegetative cells from environmental samples.

This product is not intended to be used for the diagnosis of human disease.

C. diff Banana Broth™ is a great tool to verify the efficacy of hospital cleaning procedures.

Approximately 1.7 million hospitalized patients develop nosocomial infections annually while being treated for entirely unrelated conditions; more than 98,000 or one in 17 of these patients will die due to complications from acquired infections. (Coimatti, J.P., LH Aiken, D.M Sloane, E.S. Wu. 2012)

Clostridium difficile has become increasingly common among nosocomial infections which makes screening for it increasingly important.

C. diff Banana Broth™ is pre-reduced, ready to use, highly sensitive and a specific detection method for Clostridium difficile. The high specificity and truly vivid color distinction makes environmental testing for Clostridium difficile extremely simple.
