Clinical Media (for IVD use)
InPouch™ TV

InPouch™ TV is a highly specific and sensitive
device allowing for simultaneous growth and
observation of Trichomonas vaginalis, the
parasite responsible for the STI
trichomoniasis. The InPouch™ TV is known as
“The Gold Standard” diagnostic for this STI.
The proprietary medium of the InPouch™ TV is
selective for the transport and growth of T.
vaginalis and increases specificity by inhibiting
the growth of yeasts, mold, bacteria, and
other commensal micro flora. No slide
preparation is required to view T. vaginalis in
the InPouch™ TV.

InTray™ GC

InTray™ GC allows for simultaneous detection
and observation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the
bacterium responsible for the STI, Gonorrhea.
The InTray™ GC system is equipped with an
integrated CO2 tablet contained in a sealed
inner chamber to prevent degradation during
storage. Once the CO2 chamber is punctured
and the InTray™ resealed, the tablet
generates the required anaerobic atmosphere
of CO2 gas, approximately 7%, eliminating the
need for costly CO2 incubators.

InTray™ DM

InTray™ GC allows for simultaneous detection
and observation of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the
bacterium responsible for the STI, Gonorrhea.
The InTray™ GC system is equipped with an
integrated CO2 tablet contained in a sealed
inner chamber to prevent degradation during
storage. Once the CO2 chamber is punctured
and the InTray™ resealed, the tablet
generates the required anaerobic atmosphere
of CO2 gas, approximately 7%, eliminating the
need for costly CO2 incubators.

InTray™ Colorex™ Yeast

InTray™ Colorex™ Yeast is a specialized
device that allows for simultaneous growth,
observation, and chromogenic differentiation
of Candida species as well as Malassezia
pachydermatis. Samples are traditionally taken
from skin, sputum, urine, or vagnial swabs.

InTray™ Colorex™ VRE

Colorex™ VRE is a selective and differential
chromogenic medium, containing vancomycin,
intended for use in isolation of pure cultures of
vancomycin resistant Enterococcus faecium
and Enterococcus faecalis (VRE) from
laboratory samples. Further, colony color is
used to differentiate transmissible forms of
resistance (i.e., VanA & VanB resistance) from
intrinsically resistant (i.e. VanC, VanD, VanE,
etc.) strains. The test can be performed with
samples of composed of mixed populations of
bacteria, e.g stool, biological fluids, surface
streaks, etc.

InTray™ Colorex™ KPC

Colorex™ KPC is a selective and differential
chromogenic medium containing a carbapenem
selective agent intended for use in obtaining a
pure culture of gram-negative bacteria
expressing reduced susceptibility to
carbapenem-class antibiotics. The test can be
performed with samples of composed of mixed
populations of bacteria, e.g stool, biological
fluids, surface streaks, etc. The InTray™
Colorex™ KPC inhibits the growth of yeasts,
mold, and fungi, resulting in 100% sensitivity
and 98.4% selectivity for the growth of gram-
negative bacteria expressing reduced
susceptibility to carbapenem class antibiotics.

InTray™ Colorex™ ESBL

Colorex™ ESBL Agar is a selective and
differential chromogenic medium, containing an
extended-spectrum beta-lactam selective
agent, intended for use as a plating technique
to obtain a pure culture of Enterobacteriaceae
that produce extended-spectrum beta-
lactamase (ESBL). The test can be performed
with samples of composed of mixed
populations of bacteria, e.g stool, biological
fluids, surface streaks, etc. The InTray™
Colorex™ ESBL inhibits the growth of yeasts,
mold, fungi, and non-ESBL bacteria.

InTray™ Colorex™ Salmonella

Colorex™ Salmonella agar is a chromogenic
medium for selective isolation and
differentiation of Salmonella species, e.g.
Enterobacteriaceae and other enteric
bacteria.
With Colorex™ Salmonella medium, Salmonella
spp. including S. typhi, are distinguishable by
colony color. The test can be performed with
samples of composed of mixed populations of
bacteria, e.g stool, blood, biological fluids,
surface streaks, etc. High sensitivity and
specificity of the medium lead to a higher
detection rate of Salmonella spp. Selective
agents inhibit the growth of gram-positive
organisms, yeasts, mold, fungi, and other
bacteria, resulting in 100% sensitivity and
89% specificity for Salmonella compared to
78% specificity with traditional Hektoen Agar.

InTray™ Pseudomonas Isolation Agar

Pseudomonas Isolation (PI) Agar is a selective
and differential medium for isolation of
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an opportunistic
pathogen that can infect eyes, ears, burns
and wounds. It is also a leading cause of
hospital acquired infections. PI Agar is
prepared according to a slight modification of
King’s “Medium A” and includes Irgasan™, a
potent broad spectrum antimicrobial that is
not active against Pseudomonas. As well as
being selective, PI Agar is formulated to
enhance the formation of the blue or blue-
green pyocyanin pigment by P. aeruginosa

InTray™ PDA

The InTray™ PDA allows for simultaneous
growth and observation of many species of
organisms including yeasts, molds, and fungus,
as well as the cultivation and sporulation of
various dermatophytes. Potato Dextrose Agar
is recommended by the American Public Health
Association (APHA) for plate counts of yeasts
and molds in the examination of foods and
dairy products.

InTray™ SDA

Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) is
recommended in the United States
Pharmacopoeia (USP) for use in performing
total combined mold and yeast counts
(Microbial Limits Tests). InTray™ SDA and
InTray™ SDA + PVG are general-purpose
microbiology devices that allow for
simultaneous growth and observation of
pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi,
including yeasts and dermatophytes. The
InTray™ SDA is slightly inhibitory against
bacteria and is designed for sampling a large
spectrum of fungal growth. Bacterial inhibition
is further enhanced with the introduction of
the antibiotics Polymyxin B, Vancomycin and
Gentamicin in the InTray™ SDA + PVG, for use
in samples with suspected high levels of
bacterial contamination. For isolation of fungi
from potentially contaminated specimens, best
practice suggests the selective InTray™ SDA
+ PVG should be run in parallel with the non-
selective InTray™ SDA.

InTray™ Brilliant Green

InTray™ Brilliant Green enables the growth
and observation of Salmonella species other
than S. typhi from stool and other clinical
samples as well as environmental samples. The
use of Brilliant Green Agar is included in
procedures in Standard Methods for the
Examination of Water and Wastewater.
