Description

Selectively isolate beta-hemolytic group A streptococci from throat cultures and upper respiratory specimens with Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Strep A Isolation Agar. Several investigators have demonstrated improved isolation rates using sheep blood agar incorporated with selective agents to inhibit the commensal microbial flora commonly encountered in the oropharynx. In 1977, Gunn et al. developed a selective medium consisting of sheep blood agar supplemented with sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for isolating groups A and B streptococci1.

Streptococcus pyogenes is an important human pathogen that causes a wide variety of acute infections, such as soft tissue infections and pharyngitis; severe life-threatening infections, such as streptococcal toxic shock syndrome; and devastating post-infectious sequelae, such as rheumatic fever and glomerulonephritis.

Use Strep A Isolation Agar for selective isolation of beta-hemolytic group A streptococci from throat cultures and upper respiratory specimens.

  • Selective: a unique combination of selective ingredients used in the medium suppresses the commensal microbial flora.
  • Ready-to-use: convenience of prepared media.
