Brilliance™ MRSA is a new and improved chromogenic screening plate for MRSA. The medium combines excellent sensitivity with the simplicity of a chromogenic plate to create an invaluable tool in the implementation of infection control policy.

Brilliance MRSA Agar can be inoculated from screening swabs taken from hospital patients or staff, an isolated colony or from liquid suspension, according to local guidelines. The medium should be allowed to warm to room temperature before inoculation. Incubate for 18-20 hours at 37ºC. There is no need to incubate beyond 24 hours. Denim blue colonies are presumptive positive for MRSA. Identifications as S. aureus can be confirmed with Staphytect Plus (DR0850) or Dryspot Staphytect Plus (DR0100), and PBP2′ (DR0900) can be used to confirm MRSA.
