Product Code TM 1545

  • Description

    Beta-haemolytic Streptococci with Lancefield group B antigen (Streptococcus agalactiae) are an important cause of serious neonatal infection characterized by sepsis and meningitis. Heavy colonization of the maternal genital tract is associated with colonization of infants and risk of neonatal disease. GBS Medium, formulated by Islam is recommended for the isolation and detection of group B Streptococci (GBS) from clinical specimens. GBS Medium is designed to exploit the ability of most Group B Streptococci (GBS) to produce orange /red pigmented colonies when incubated under anaerobic conditions. The orange red pigment of group B Streptococci also has the characteristic of a carotenoid. GBS Medium Base also supports growth of other genital bacteria that cause perinatal infections, e.g. anaerobic Streptococcus, Bacteroides and Clostridium species.
