Actero™ Listeria Enrichment Media

Food and environmental samples require enrichment before pathogen testing to amplify or grow any existing bacterial pathogens, making it easier to detect Listeria in test samples. All Actero™ enrichment mediums are ISO compliant, quality controlled at FoodChek Laboratories, and provided in two different product lines of the patented “Elite” group of Actero™ Enrichment Media and standard formulations of Actero™ Universal Enrichment Media.
