Gram-negative bacteria are of significant concern in both clinical infections and food contamination. Identification of the causative agent is crucial in the clinical setting to identify the cause of infection and to establish an appropriate treatment regime. In the food industry, biochemical identification can help to trace the source of contamination. With these GNB reagents and accessories, Enterobacteriaceae and common miscellaneous Gram-negative bacilli are quickly and accurately identified so that proper, fast treatment for the patient may follow.
