length of stay, and total hospital costs:

  • Case fatality rate of 11% higher than normal patients
  • 6.6 days greater length of stay
  • $20,534 in additional hospital costs(2)

"We pioneered this chromogenic media for systematic and cost-efficient screening to control the spread of VRE infections, significant from both a medical and economic perspective," said Thierry Bernard, corporate vice president, Commercial Operations for bioMerieux. "As part of a comprehensive infection prevention program, chromID VRE can help institutions identify the reservoir and control the spread of these pathogenic organisms."  

chromID VRE is the latest screening tool added to the bioMerieux arsenal in the fight against healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). chromID VRE along with chromID™ MRSA, FDA cleared and introduced last fall, provide simple and cost-effective solutions in the fight against these bacterial pathogens. The presence of vancomycin-resistant enterococci on chromID VRE is visually identified by the presence of blue-to-green colonies with E. faecalis and violet-colored colonies with E. faeciu
