acumedia® Violet Red Bile Agar with MUG

• Intended Use: Violet Red Bile Agar W/ MUG is used for the detection of coliforms and the fluorogenic detection of Escherichia
coli.
• Product Summary and Explanation: Violet Red Bile Agar W/ MUG is specified in many procedures to enumerate coliforms in food
and dairy products. In 1982, Feng and Hartman developed a rapid fluorogenic assay for Escherichia coli by incorporating 4-
methylumbelliferyl--D-glucuronide (MUG) into Lauryl Tryptose Broth. Incorporating MUG into Violet Red Bile Agar permits the
detection of E. coli among the coliform colonies. Standard methods procedures specify Violet Red Bile Agar with MUG for
detecting E. coli in food and dairy products by fluorescence. This medium is often abbreviated as VRBA w/ MUG.
