Differentiate and presumptively identify streptococci and enterococci with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Strep ID Quadplate. In 1953, Maxted demonstrated the use of bacitracin to differentiate group A β-hemolytic streptococci (sensitive) from non-group A streptococci (resistant)1.
Differentiate aerobic actinomycetes by hydrolysis of casein, xanthine, tyrosine, and starch with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Nocardia Quad. A taxonomic scheme to differentiate these genera based on biochemical characteristics was developed by Mishra et al1. McGinnis et al.
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Nocardia Triplate is used for differentiation of aerobic actinomycetes.
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Blood Agar Quad (TSA 5% Sheep Blood) is used for the isolation and/or differentiation of microorganisms or specimens.
Primarily isolate and recover beta-hemolytic group A streptococci from throat cultures and upper respiratory specimens with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Strep A Isolation Agar/Strep A Isolation Agar Biplate. Throat culture helps in identification of infection by Streptococcus pyogenes. Gunn et al.
Differentiate aerobic actinomycetes based on the hydrolysis of casein, xanthine, tyrosine, and urea using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Nocardia Quad II. Mishra et al. developed the taxonomic scheme to differentiate actinomycetes based on biochemical characteristics1. McGinnis et al.
Thermo Scientific™ Remel Haemophilus ID II Triplate is used for speciation of the genus Haemophilus based on the demonstration of growth factor requirements and on the ability to convert delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) into porphyrins.
Predict vancomycin and high-level aminoglycoside resistance in Enterococcus spp. using Thermo Scientific™ Synergy Quad.
