We compared ChromID VRE medium with Enterococcosel containing vancomycin for the detection of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus in 1, specimens. The new chromogenic agar chromID VRE (cIDVRE; bioMérieux) was compared with bile esculin agar (BD) containing 6 mg/liter vancomycin for the detection of. The performance of the recently developed Seeplex VRE detection kit was compared with chromID VRE agar and the conventional blood agar plate with.

Comparison of five selective media for identifying fecal carriage of vancomycin-resistant enterococci.

Clin Microbiol Infect ; European survey of vancomycin-resistant enterococci in at-risk hospital wards and chromif vitro susceptibility testing of ramoplanin against these isolates. These VRE were E. The comparison of our results with those of other studies is difficult since in most of the latter direct plating was used without enrichment methods. Because some vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus species other than E.

Vigilance is suggested to see if these species eventually emerge as significant pathogens.

Although Gram-negative bacilli species not identified were the major source of false-positive results by the chromID VRE agar, this problem was resolved by Ver staining. In addition, it gives a short turn-around-time 2 days for reporting VRE, as shown previously with multiplex PCRs [ 78 ].
