  • Causa
    During an internal investigation, biomérieux observed an anomaly on nine (9) lots of chromid s. aureus manufactured with the same semi-finished lot.This anomaly is causing a delayed colouration of the colonies which appear white/light green instead of green resulting in a potential false negative result. biochemical and/or immunological tests must be performed to identify colonies other than green ones (white, pink or mauve): therefore, the risk of delivering a false negative result is mitigated if the instructions for use have been followed.
