ChromID VRE in combination with Gram straining provided a higher specificity than Enterococcosel, irrespective of the incubation time and enrichment. Glycopeptide-acquired resistance has emerged in Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium , which are designated vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus species VRE. The resistance phenotype VanA is the most common and features high-level resistance to both vancomycin and teicoplanin. In Europe, a high prevalence has also been observed in the United Kingdom Since then, at least five others have been reported in French hospitals 8 , Early detection of VRE in fecal specimens is important for nosocomial prevention measures, epidemiologic infectious disease follow-up, and also prevention of vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus emergence 10 ,

Need information? Specific and selective chromogenic medium for the detection and differentiation of Enterococcus faecium and E. Enterococci can cause dangerous infections for people who have weakened resistance, such as those who are immunocompromised or who have undergone surgery. Infection with VRE leaves clinicians with few or no treatment options. Rapid and reliable detection of VRE enables timely implementation of appropriate treatment and infection control measures, important to fighting antimicrobial resistance and to containing HAI.
We designed this range to make it easy for you to access high-quality chromogenic media to help manage the serious healthcare challenges presented by antimicrobial resistance and healthcare associated infections HAI.
