For detection and differentiation of Gram (+) bacteria resistant to linezolid
Gram (+) cocci pose a global threat to human health due to the emergence of resistance to antibiotics. Linezolid has a broad spectrum of activity against a variety of pathogenic Gram (+) microorganisms, such as MRSA, VRS and VRE. However, the emergence of strains resistant to linezolid (LIN-R) and horizontal spread of resistance linked to the cfr gene, have been increasingly reported after approval of its clinical use.

Although the prevalence of linezolid resistance remains low, the emergence of LIN-R strains is still a great concern. CHROMagar'" LIN-R is a chromogenic screening medium for the detection, isolation and differentiation of strains of Staphylococcus and Enterococcus L resistant to linezolid.
  1. Highly Sensitive: Detection of MIC as low as 8 μg/mL.
  2. Directly from specimen
  3. Easy interpretation: Species identification by MALDI-TOF can be carried directly from colony.
  4. With experience, a trained eye can differentiate between E. faecium and E. faecalis, and between S. aureus and S. epidermidis.

Info CHROMagar

Inventor of chromogenic media technology.


CHROMagar™ supplies the widest range of chromogenic culture media available, covering applications in clinical bacteriology, industrial microbiology, quality control for food and beverage industries, water testing and environmental monitoring… among other fields. These media allow for a quicker and simpler detection of key clinical and food-borne pathogens, including Salmonella, Staph aureus, Candida albicans, E.coli O157, Group B Strep, E.coli, Listeria, Vibrio and Pseudomonas.

CHROMagar™ chromogenic media are powerful and convenient. They allow a nice visualisation of coloured colonies even when the colonies are very close to each other which happens often from real samples containing a commensal flora.

The use of CHROMagar™ chromogenic media enables you to pick colonies by colour, thus providing an easy, rapid, sensitive and specific methodology for direct differentiation of species.
