C9000 C9001
Hardy Diagnostics CRITERION™ HardyCHROM™ Candida is a selective medium recommended for the isolation and identification of yeasts. This medium also allows for the differentiation of C. albicans , C. tropicalis and C. krusei based on differences in colony morphology and color. This medium facilitates the detection of mixed yeast cultures.

  • Wide mouth opening
  • Convenient no-slip handgrip
  • Stackable containers
  • Increased solubility
  • Custom and bulk products available

CRITERION™ HardyCHROM™ Candida is a selective and differential medium containing chromogenic substrates

Additionally, HardyCHROM™ Candida can be used in conjunction with Rapid Trehalose Broth (Cat. no. Z205) or GlabrataQuick™ (Cat. no. Z298) to aid in the identification of C. glabrata. When HardyCHROM™ Candida is used as the primary plating medium, only colonies that morphologically (pink, often with a darker mauve center) resemble C. glabrata should be tested for trehalose assimilation.

HardyCHROM™ Candida contains glucose and selected peptones as a nutrient supply. Chromogenic substrates are incorporated to enable the production of different colored compounds when degraded by specific enzymes present in the yeast. Chloramphenicol is added as an inhibitory agent against the growth of most bacteria, present in mixed samples.

After degradation by specific enzymes, the substrates release different colored compounds. Certain species or groups of organisms can then be differentiated with a minimum number of confirmatory tests.
