EnteroPluri Test is a 12-sector system containing special culture media that permits identification of the Enterobacteriaceae and other gram negative, oxidase negative bacteria. The system allows the simultaneous inoculation of all media present in the sectors and the execution of 15 biochemical reactions. Microorganism is identified evaluating the colour change of the different culture media after 18 to 24 hours of incubation at 36 ±1 °C and by a code number obtained from biochemical reaction interpretation. Oxidase, Kovacs Reagent Indol (e.g. 1.00181.0002, 1.09293.0100, 1.11350.0001) and Codebook are not included.
- Based on biochemical tests performed on culture media containing specific substrates
- Combination of positive and negative permits identification of bacteria by using the Codebook
