Abstract A new medium, Chromocult Coliform® Agar (CC agar) developed by E. Merck AG (Darmstadt, Germany) was compared with the Standard Methods, membrane filtration fecal coliform (mFC) medium for fecal coliform detection and enumeration. In the CC agar, non‐E. coli, fecal coliforms (Klebsiella, Enterobacter, and Citrobacter,), (KEC) were identified by the production of a salmon to red colour from p‐galactosidase (LAC) cleavage of the substrate Salmon‐GAL, while E. coli, colonies were detected… CONTINUE READING
