It should be noted that the names ColiChrome 2 Redigel and Coliscan Easygel are synonymous for the same original product, so that whatever pertains to ColiChrome 2 Redigel is equally true for Coliscan Easygel.
The actual 966.2 are recorded in Table 5. The inoculum and product were mixed in appropriate diluent 50 g product with mL diluent by blending for 2 minutes or according to other specific AOAC protocols. It is particularly interesting to compare the three methods with the MPN method.
Brief comments on each of the food products follows. The MPN and Petrifilm EC differed significantly in the cheddar cheese, the ground beef and the yogurt at the low levels. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among any of the methods or levels. For the Petrifilm EC method, of samples of 20 foods, Red colonies were recorded as total coliforms and purple colonies were recorded as E.
The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated a significant difference between the MPN and all other methods at the low 966.2 for coliforms, with no significant difference at high and medium levels. Blue gassing colonies were counted at 48 h and recorded as E.
Statistical analyses were done by Mr. A precollaborative study was conducted to compare a pectin gel ColiChrome 2 Redigel plating method to the MPN fermentation tube method, The MPN and Petrifilm EC differed significantly in five other instances, those being in the pasteurized milk at the low and high levels, the black aoqc and mushrooms at the medium level and the shrimp at the high level.
In the general linear model for E. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among any of the methods except for MPN and Petrifilm EC at the low and high levels for E. The entire medium may take on a very light-pink cast, seeming to indicate a high galactosidase level in the medium from the oyster tissue. The total coliforms and E. The mean comparisons for coliforms with each method and level indicated no significant differences between the MPN and all other methods.
The foods were spiked with a mixture of the following coliforms.
Precollab Study – Micrology Labs
9662.3 2 Redigel method for total coliforms and E. Red and blue gassing colonies were counted at 24 h and the sum of the two was recorded as total coliforms. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among any of the methods except for ColiChrome 2 Redigel and Petrifilm EC with VRB Redigel at the low level for coliforms.
Further confirmation of the E. The MPN and VRB Redigel differed in corn, meat pot pie, and pasteurized milk at the low levels, the pepper at medium level and the pasteurized milk at the high level. The data presented in this paper were from the 24 h. Based upon the results of this study, we believe that any of aozc three rapid methods may be used effectively to differentiate and confirm coliforms or E.
This study resulted in considerably more insights and information than originally expected. Since both of these methods are also AOAC approved, we felt that such additional comparisons would be most informative and helpful. Gas production was considered positive. The mean comparisons for each method and level of coliforms indicated no significant differences among any of the methods except for Petrifilm EC and VRB Redigel and at the low level.
Percentage of samples falling within MPN confidence intervals for each method were as follows: Procedures were followed in accordance with the protocol established in the collaborative study of the medium 2. However, we believe that the direct comparisons of the four methods contribute significantly to questions about the methods. Total coliforms produce the enzyme galactosidase which cleaves the first substrate to form an insoluble red dye.
Totally accurate differentiation of total coliforms and E. Dairy – Seafoods – Meats – Vegetables cheddar cheese fish frozen beef raw ground broccoli frozen cottage cheese oysters fresh meat pot pie frozen corn frozen milk pasteurized shrimp fresh turkey raw ground mushrooms fresh milk raw yogurt.
ColiChrome 2 Redigel coliforms Following the introduction of the technology by RCR Scientific, the idea was copied by most of the major media makers worldwide since the RCR patent only covered the U. Cultures were grown 24 hours in tryptone broth at 35 C and then washed 3 times with Butterfield’s Phosphate Buffer. Also, thanks to F.
The MPN and ColiChrome 2 Redigel differed significantly in two other instances, those being in the corn at the low level and the pasteurized milk at the high level of bacteria. References 1 Roth, J.
In two of the foods cheddar cheese and oystersthe MPN results were significantly different than the other three methods.
Also, none of the mean comparisons for each method and level differed significantly. The mean comparisons for each method and level indicated no significant differences among any of the methods except for the MPN and Petrifilm EC at the high level of coliforms.
It is our experience that if low populations of coliforms occur in oysters so that 1mL of a 1: Redigel is an agar plate substitute whose only basic difference to standard agar plate media is the aosc of a low methoxyl pectin for agar as the gelling agent in the media. Petrifilm plates were incubated at 35 C for 48 h and colonies were counted at 24 and 48 h. This technology represents the first use of more than one chromogenic enzyme substrate being used in a diagnostic medium and the first patent was issued in 9966.23 plates and tubes were incubated together in the same 966.2 when possible to eliminate any possible variation in results from incubation differences.
This study was originally designed to satisfy aozc requirements of a precollaborative study leading to the approval and implementation of a collaborative study on the use of ColiChrome 2 Redigel for the differentiation of total coliforms and E.
