Chromogenic Listeria Agar Meets Iso Recommendations
Nov 06 2006
The selective chromogenic medium, comprised of OCLA Base (ISO) [CM1084] and Listeria Selective Supplement (ISO) [SR0226E], detects the ?-glucosidase activity common to all Listeria species resulting in distinct blue colonies. The addition of phosphatidylinositol at 2g/L, as recommended in the ISO formulation, detects phosphatidylinositol phospholipase C (PIPLC) produced by pathogenic Listeria species. Alternatively, the addition of Oxoid Chromogenic Listeria Differential Supplement [SR0228E] detects phosphatidycholine phospholipase C (PCPLC). Either supplementation results in a clearly visible, opaque white halo around pathogenic Listeria colonies.
Both PIPLC and PCPLC are associated with the virulence of Listeria, but detection of either enzyme is sufficient for the identification of pathogenicity. Listeria monocytogenes is the most common pathogenic Listeria species, but some strains of L. ivanovii may also possess these enzymes. Pathogenic L. ivanovii will also produce blue colony halos on OCLA (ISO).
