Actero™ Coliform Enrichment Media

Food and environmental samples require enrichment before pathogen testing to amplify or grow any existing bacterial pathogens, making it easier to detect Coliform in test samples.

For a custom solution, the Actero™ MediaPouch is for laboratories that require portion-packed media to use in automated media preparation instruments. It is available in pouches and can be custom packaged to meet your specific needs.

Actero™ UNIVERSAL Enrichment Media represent established formulations that can be used for standard coliform testing protocols employed in today’s labs.
