Actero™ E. coli Enrichment Media

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

Both robust and versatile, Actero™ ELITE Enrichment Media works with a number of food pathogen testing systems including lateral flow, ELISA and PCR platforms.

The patented Actero™ ELITE Enrichment Media represents enhanced formulations that further reduce the required enrichment time to an industry-leading low, while Actero™ UNIVERSAL Enrichment Media represents established formulations that can be used for standard E. coli testing protocols employed in today’s labs.

For information on each Actero™ Enrichment Media product, first choose between the ELITE or UNIVERSAL category tabs. Once selected, a detailed list of products specific to that category, combined with a search tool option, will ensure you find what you need.
