Superpolymyxin™

Culture medium for the detection and isolation of Polymyxin-resistant bacteria strains

The SuperPolymyxin™ is a new selective culture medium for the early detection and isolation of Gram-negative bacteria with a reduced susceptibility to polymyxins. It was specially formulated to avoid swarming of Proteus spp. and to prevent contamination by Gram-positive bacteria and Fungi. The SuperPolymyxin will open new perspectives compared to the existing culture media containing high concentrations of colistin and which are known for screening intrinsic PR bacterial species (such as Serratia marcescens and Burkholderia cepacia) but are not adapted for screening isolates with acquired PR that may be of a low level.

  • Screening medium aimed to detect any Polymyxin-Resistant bacteria regardless of its resistance mechanism and of its level
  • Specially formulated to avoid swarming of Proteus spp. (naturally resistant) and to prevent contamination by Gram-positive bacteria and fungi
  • Critical in human medicine for detecting carriers and containing outbreaks due to resistant isolates
  • Useful in veterinary medicine for surveillance surveys
  • Easy to perform and highly sensitive

UMMt RevolutioN / UMMt AMIES RevolutioN

Optimized Transport Medium preserving specimen integrity for up to 72h before analysis.

The UMMt RevolutioN  medium simplifies the transport and storage of Ureaplasma urealyticum (U.u.) and Mycoplasma hominis (M.h.) present in pathological patient samples.

The UMMt AMIES RevolutioN  medium allows the transport of  U.u. and M.h. present in samples prepared with AMIES transport medium or in a universal transport medium for viruses, chlamydias, mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas.

Given this new generation of UMMt transport medium and our new “MYCOPLASMA Stabilizer”, specimens are preserved up to 72 hours allowing analysis to be outsourced or deferred.
Before opening, the UMMt RevolutioN / UMMt AMIES RevolutioN  (2.6mL) medium can be stored temporarily (3 months) at room temperature (18-25 °C).

UMMt RevolutioN  is:

  • A complement of transport medium for MYCOFAST® RevolutioN  (ref. 00060), RevolutioN  2 (ref. 00080) and RevolutioN ATB+ (ref. 00070)
  • A transport and inoculation medium for MYCOFAST® Screening RevolutioN  (ref. 00063) or for the COMPLEMENT MYCOFAST® RevolutioN  (ref. 00062), COMPLEMENT MYCOFAST® RevolutioN ATB+ (ref. 00073) or the COMPLEMENT MYCOFAST® RevolutioN  2 (ref. 00082)

UMMt AMIES RevolutioN  is :

  • A complement of UMMt AMIES (2.6mL) medium for the MYCOFAST® RevolutioN  2 AMIES kit (ref. 00081) or for the COMPLEMENT MYCOFAST® RevolutioN  2 kit (ref. 00082) or the MYCOFAST® Screening RevolutioN  kit  (ref. 00063).
