Abstract: Rapid detection of gastro-intestinal carriage of glycopeptide-resistant enterococci (GRE) from screening cultures is crucial for an efficient control of their spread. We assessed 4 media - 2 chromogenic, ChromID, (bioM´erieux), and CHROMagar (CHROMagar Microbiology), and 2 selective, VRE Selective (Oxoid) and ECCV (BD) - for their ability to detect GRE using well-characterised isolates and stool samples from hospitalised patients at high risk of GRE colonisation.
