HygieneChek Enterobacteriaceae/Total Count

Romer Labs offers HygieneChek™ dip slides which are an easy-to-use, reliable and economic microbiological testing system. They are a double-sided agar paddle which is used to detect and identify various microorganisms commonly found in food preparation areas, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

HygieneChek Enterobacteriaceae/Total Count is a Plate Count and Violet Red Bile Dextrose agar dip slide which can be used within the food industry and quality control fields for the detection and enumeration of Enterobacteriaceae and other bacteria. The only requirement for cultivation of bacteria on the HygieneChek dip slide is an incubator.

Enterobacteriaceae are a family of gram negative rods that are susceptible to most disinfectants which makes them good indicative organisms of general cleanliness. As this family encompasses a broader group of bacteria than the Coliform family they are regarded as a better measure of sanitation. Violet Red Bile Dextrose agar is selective for Enterobacteriaceae due to the addition of dextrose.

The Total Count Agar can be used for the cultivation of a broad range of both gram positive and gram negative bacteria as it is the least selective agar.
