We compared ChromID VRE medium with Enterococcosel containing vancomycin for the detection of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus in 1, specimens. The new chromogenic agar chromID VRE (cIDVRE; bioMérieux) was compared with bile esculin agar (BD) containing 6 mg/liter vancomycin for the detection of. The performance of the recently developed Seeplex VRE detection kit was compared with chromID VRE agar and the conventional blood agar plate with.

Journal List J Clin Microbiol v. Although Enterococcus species other than E. 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 chomid In a previous study [ 10 ], the EB was also used to detect low-level expression of glycopeptide resistance.

We designed this range to make it easy for you to access high-quality chromogenic media to help manage the serious healthcare challenges xhromid by antimicrobial resistance and healthcare associated infections HAI.

The large number of samples investigated during this study and the low prevalence of VRE provided the opportunity to explore the false positives. Sudden increase of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infections in a Korean tertiary care hospital: Like us on Facebook.


In the second study, vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus species other than E. Detection chrmoid a vanB determinant in Enterococcus gallinarum in Australia.

Skip to main content. In Korea, these organisms have been reported with increasing frequency as the use of oral vancomycin has increased since [ 2 ]. Enterococci had brownish black to black halos on Enterococcosel with vancomycin BEAv. The aims of this study were to assess the performance of chromID VRE medium in a low-prevalence context and to determine the best method of use.

Although Gram-negative bacilli species not identified were the major source of false-positive results by the chromID VRE agar, this problem was resolved by Gram staining. They were processed the same way as in the initial study. Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis ; Chromir primers allow a wide range of annealing temperatures and provide high specificity [ 5 ]. VREs were detected by all three methods in 28 specimens.
