Product Code TM 1470
Arabinose Agar Base is based on arabinose fermentation by Enterococcus species. Enterococcus species are becoming increasingly important agents of human diseases, largely because of their resistance to antimicrobial agents, thereby becoming a major cause of nosocomial infections. The use of selective medium for the isolation of Enterococci has been previously reviewed and Arabinose Agar Base with Enterococcus faecium Selective Supplement (containing cephalexin and aztreonam) is recommended for the selective isolation of E. faecium from heavily contaminated sites.
