Introduction to Cronobacter sakazakii (CRM-CS)

Reference Material Cronobacter sakazakii (CRM-CS) contains Cronobacter sakazakii NCCB 100285, WDCM 00214 and can be used for validation studies, learning purposes, media control and first line control of microbiological analysis for the detection of Cronobacter sakazakii.

Cronobacter sakazakii formally known as Enterobacter sakazakii, is an opportunistic Gram-negativerod-shapedpathogenic bacterium that can live in very dry places. In infants it can cause bacteraemiameningitis and necrotizing enterocolitis. Most Cronobacter sakazakiiinfections cases have been associated with the use of powdered infant formula.

CRM-CS can be used for different methods, for example:

ISO 22964             Microbiology of the food chain – Horizontal method for the detection of Cronobacter spp

ISO 11133              Microbiology of food, animal feed and water - Preparation, production, storage and performance testing of culture media

NEN 6603              Environment and food – Internal quality control by the use of control charts with chemical and microbiological

Results from the detection method (present or absent) as well as the results of counts on agar plates can be plotted in the BiosistoChart according to NEN 6603.

Regulation 2073/2005 lays down microbiological criteria for various combinations of food commodities and microorganisms, their toxins or metabolites. The Regulation differentiates microbiological criteria into Process hygiene and Food safety criteria. The Food safety criteria are applicable to Cronobacter species.
