  • Microbial Identification – bacteria and yeast identification (ID)
  • Antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) and resistance mechanism detection
  • Epidemiologic trending and reporting
  • Reduce time to microbial identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing results
  • Offer an extensive identification and susceptibility menu
  • Reduce waste with a miniaturized card-format that measures 10 cm x 6 cm x 0.5 cm and weighs only 16 grams
  • Meet the needs of any size laboratory
  • High discrimination between species
  • Low rate of multiple choice and misidentified species

Minimal number of off-line tests

  • Knowledge base developed from >100,000 references
  • >2,000 described phenotypes
  • >20,000 MIC distributions
  • >100 resistance mechanisms detected
  • >99 organisms
  • On average, provides a resulting range of five to seven MIC doubling dilutions per antibiotic
  • Extended MIC range to enable low-level resistance detection
