Partnering with microbiologists to diagnose and prevent diseaseTM

In November, Hardy became the first culture media company to offer a highly selective chromogenic medium specifically for gram negative rod ESBL organisms; sometimes referred to in the press as “superbugs.”  This new medium will isolate and detect these highly resistant strains of E. coli (pictured) and Klebsiella. Growth of resistant strains occur from stool cultures in about 24 hours. Further testing can be done for confirmation.
