Soleris® Staphylococcus spp. vials are used as a screening method for detection of Staphylococcus microorganisms. The Staph Vial, pH range: 7.0 to 7.4, contains aniline blue as a dye indicator. Staphylococcus spp., especially S. aureus, if present in the test sample, ferment the mannitol sugar in the broth changing it to acid, which changes the lighter blue color dye to a dark blue color.
