Enterobacter species are widely distributed in nature occurring in fresh water, soil, and sewage, plants, vegetables, animal and human faeces. *Cronobacter sakazakii has been closely associated with neonatal meningitis and sepsis. Chromogenic Cronobacter isolation Agar is recommended by ISO Committee for the isolation and identification of *C.sakazakii from food samples. The chromogenic substrate (5-Bromo-4-chloro-3-indolyl ?-D-glucopyranoside) is cleaved specifically by *C.sakazakii resulting in the formation of blue green colonies. Other organisms, which do not cleave this substrate, produce colourless colonies.
recommended for the isolation and identi?cation of Cronobacter sakazakii from food product
