          Uricult / Uricult plus immersion culture medium from Roche

          The Uricult and Uricult plus immersion culture media from Roche are used for the determination of pathogenic germs in urine. The rapid test result makes the ready-to-use culture media particularly suitable for bacteriological urine diagnostics in the doctor's office. If the analysis is to be outsourced, Uricult can also be easily used as transport medium for further examination in the laboratory.

          Fast application in 5 simple steps

          Unicult from Roche is particularly user-friendly in handling and provides a precise result in a short time.

          1. Unscrew the cap and remove the lid together with the culture medium.
          2. Immerse the ready-to-use culture medium in fresh midstream urine until the agar surface is completely wetted. 
          3. Allow excess urine to drip off and screw the test strip back into the tube.
          4. Fill in the corresponding patient label and stick it on the test tube.
          5. Store the collected urine sample in the incubator for 16 - 24 hours at 36 ± 2 °C for development.

          Agar media of the Uricult plus immersion culture plate

          For detailed results in bacteriological urine diagnostics, each Roche Uricult plus ready-to-use culture tray has 3 individual agar media that together provide a versatile basis for analysis.

          • One side of the culture medium carrier is coated with greenish CLED agar . This serves as general culture medium for precise determination of the general microbial load.
          • The other side has red-brown Mac Conkey agar. This enables the growth of Gram-negative bacteria in colonies up to the size of a pinhead.
          • In addition, a colorless enterococci nutrient medium is applied. This enables Uricult plus to detect enterococci and certain group B streptococci.
