I frequently use membrane filtration systems to enumerate microorgamisms in
foods. I have been told by a distributor to use LMG (Lactose Monensin
Glucoronate Agar) for the enumeration of coliforms (and with glucose for
enterobacteriaceaes) for a HGMF procedure. I am not familiar with monensin.
Does anybody have positive experience with this media, or with the use of
monensin as a selective reagent ?
