Description Back to Top
• Intended Use: Pseudomonas Cepacia Agar is used for the selective isolation and detection of Pseudomonas cepacia (Burkholderia
cepacia) from clinical and non-clinical specimens.
• Product Summary and Explanation: Pseudomonas cepacia was first described as a phytopathogen, and isolated from rotting
onions and various soil and animal sources. In recent years Pseudomonas cepacia has become an opportunist, causing
nosocomial infections including endocarditis, pneumonia, wound, and urinary tract infections. This organism has been isolated
from disinfectants, nebulizers, incubators, and intraveous fluids in hospitals worldwide. P. cepacia causes chronic lung infections
in cystic fibrosis patients, and can lead to life-threatening systemic complications. P. cepacia is highly resistant to
aminoglycosides and other antibiotics, making it difficult to treat.
In 1985 Gilligan et al. developed Pseudomonas Cepacia Agar. This medium has shown good recovery of P. cepacia, even among mixed populations. Some P. cepacia strains produce a nonfluorescent phenazine pigment, while others nonpigmented. A sweet odor similar to that associated with P. aeruginosa is produced by some strains.
