acumedia<sup>®</sup> Oxford Listeria Agar

acumedia® Oxford Listeria Agar

• Intended Use: Oxford Listeria Agar Base is used with antimicrobics for the selective isolation of Listeria spp.
• Product Summary and Explanation: Listeria monocytogenes, described first in 1926 by Murray, Webb, and Swann, is an extensive problem in public health and food industries. This organism has the ability to cause human illness and death, particularly in immunocompromised individuals. Epidemiological evidence from outbreaks of listeriosis has indicated that the principle route of transmission is via the consumption of foodstuffs contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Implicated vehicles of transmission included turkey frankfurters, coleslaw, pasteurized milk, Mexican style cheese, and pate. Listeria spp. are ubiquitous in nature, being present in a wide range of unprocessed foods as well as in soil, sewage, and river water.
Oxford Listeria Agar Base is prepared according to the formulation of Curtis et al.6 Listeria spp. grow over a pH range of 5.0 - 9.6, and survive in food products with pH levels outside these parameters.
