Listeria monocytogenes is a gram-positive foodborne human pathogen responsible for serious infections in pregnant women that may ultimately result in abortion, stillbirth, birth of a child with neonatal listeriosis and meningitis or primary bacteremia in adults and juveniles. The pathogenicity of Listeria ivanovii for humans is uncertain. Since L. monocytogenes and L.innocua have similar biochemical properties, they cannot be differentiated on traditional media (PALCAM, Oxford). L. mono Confirmatory Agar Base is a modification of the formulation of Ottoviani and Agosti for the selective and differential isolation of Listeria monocytogenes.
for selective and di?erential isolation of Listeria monocytogenes from clinical & food samples
