AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate the TEMPO(®) EB automated most probable number (MPN) system for the enumeration of Enterobacteriaceae in comparison with three standard laboratory methods. METHOD AND RESULTS Pure cultures were used to determine the sensitivity and specificity of the TEMPO(®) EB test. These studies indicated that Enterobacteriaceae were reliably detected with a detection limit below 10CFU, whilst non-Enterobacteriaceae strains gave negative results at all inoculum… CONTINUE READING
