Chromatic CRE

Chromatic CRE contains a mixture of carbapenems for screening a wide variety of carbapenem-resistance mechanisms and provides presumptive identification of E. coli and the Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Serratia and Citrobacter (KESC) group directly from clinical specimens.

Liofilchem Chromatic CRE

Carbapenems, successfully used to treat multi-resistant Gram-negative bacterial infections, including ESBL positive strains, are not efficacious against the Enterobacteriaceae resistant to carbapenems, thus generating a significant risk of hospital-acquired infections.
