Culture Media for Testing Staphylococcus aureus

Request Information

To enrich, isolate and enumerate Staphylococcus aureus, Merck provides a comprehensive range of dehydrated culture media. Like with other indicator organisms, Staphylococcus aureus testing is used to monitor the hygiene conditions in food and beverage production facilities to ensure consumer safety.
S. aureus is common on the skin and in the nasal mucous of humans and animals and a frequent cause of food poisoning. It is therefore an ideal indicator for the quality of hygiene standards followed by personnel involved in food or beverage manufacturing.

Our Selection of Culture Media for Staphylococcus aureus

Merck provides highly consistent quality media for the enrichment, isolation and enumeration of the indicator microorganism Staph. aureus. These media are provided in a variety of formulations as dehydrated culture media in the form of granules.

Merck’s uniquely granulated culture media are not only convenient. They are also safe to use and meet the highest industry standards for performance as stipulated in ISO 11133. Granules cause much less dust in the lab than powdered media and, as a consequence, less inhalation of hazardous media components that may cause allergic reactions. Granulation also minimizes contamination of the lab environment.

All culture media that Merck produces are quality controlled according to stringent standards, thereby guaranteeing consistent products.
