|Title:||Comparative study of selective chromogenic (chromID VRE) and bile esculin agars for isolation and identification of vanB-containing vancomycin-resistant enterococci from feces and rectal swabs.||Austin Authors:||Grabsch, Elizabeth A ;Ghaly-Derias, S;Gao, W;Howden, Benjamin P||Affiliation:||Microbiology Department, Austin Health, Melbourne, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Oct-2008||Publication information:||Journal of Clinical Microbiology 2008; 46(12): 4034-6||Abstract:||The new chromogenic agar chromID VRE (cIDVRE; bioMérieux) was compared with bile esculin agar (BD) containing 6 mg/liter vancomycin for the detection of colonization with vanB-containing vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). At 48 h of incubation, the results obtained with both media were comparable. However, cIDVRE detected significantly more VRE at 24 h (39.3% versus 21.3%, P = 0.003), and its use may facilitate the timely implementation of infection control procedures.||Gov't Doc #:||18832121||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/10686||DOI:||10.1128/JCM.00944-08||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18832121||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Anti-Bacterial Agents.pharmacology
