Urinary tract infections constitute a large share of human systemic infections and are one of the commonest bacterial infections that lead patients to seek medical care. Positive culture results are a prerequisite for timely and effective treatment of UTIs. In resource limited settings, conventional media and biochemicals are used for isolation of pathogens and a positive urine culture sometimes may require more than 48 hours for identification. To overcome this time lag, chromogenic media have been developed which help in early presumptive identification of the uropathogens and timely initiation of therapy. We have evaluated one such media Urichrom–II™ (International Microbio, France) in comparison to in house conventional media for growth of common urinary pathogens.
