About Us

Home / About Us

MEDIA-MAGE was established in February 2010.  We identified the need in South Africa for a prepared culture media manufacturer with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to provide products of the highest quality.  MEDIA-MAGE is managed by Wim Van Nierop, Susana Gomes and Susan Gould.

Between us we have more than 50 years of experience working in the field of medical diagnostics, including routine microbiology, reference laboratory, research and prepared media production.  We understand the need for high quality media and we are able to provide our customers with the best service and advice based on our extensive experience.

MEDIA-MAGE has recently started a partnership with CHROMagar. We manufacture prepared chromogenic media which is marketed as Colorex and we also offer the CHROMagar dehydrated culture media. This allows us to supply the widest range of chromogenic culture media available, covering applications in clinical bacteriology, industrial microbiology, quality control for food and beverage industries, water testing and environmental monitoring. These media allow for a quicker and simpler detection of key clinical and food-borne pathogens.  MEDIA-MAGE is now the sole distributor for CHROMagar in South Africa.

Because of the personal management of the company, MEDIA-MAGE is able to supply large routine diagnostic labs as well as research and reference labs

Although MEDIA-MAGE is growing extremely rapidly, we are committed to continuing to provide a personalised service to all our customers and to guarantee quality by staying personally involved in all aspects of the manufacturing process
