Conventional Panels

Antimicrobial resistance detection to combat MDROs

As the foundation of MicroScan ID/AST products, conventional panels deliver gold-standard1 accuracy with the fewest clinically significant reporting limitations of leading automated systems. This reduces the need for repeat testing, providing timely results without reliance on historical data.

Accurately Detect Antibiotic Resistance with 10 New MicroScan Panels

As the prevalence of multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) continues to increase, the value of accurate MIC testing has become more important than ever. Ten new MicroScan panels using direct, gold-standard1 MICs provide confidence in results while optimizing efficiency.

  • Reduce off-line Gram-negative testing and improve laboratory workflow for multidrug-resistant organisms with new antibiotics and automated read capabilities
    • Test three new antibiotics: ceftazidime/avibactam, ceftolozane/tazobactam and minocycline
    • Report Acinetobacter spp., a significant multidrug-resistant organism, through a newly formulated version of the antibiotic imipenem
    • Simplify workflow with the automatic read capabilities of the Detect Neg MIC 2 panel
  • Provide accurate Gram-positive results to treat patients faster, with time to results improved by four to eight hours for reporting enterococcal species with an enhanced vancomycin formulation (applies to the three new Gram-positive panels, as well as these current panels: Pos MIC 34, Pos Combo 43 and Pos Combo 44)

Biotype Lookup Program

The Biotype Lookup Program allows you to generate biotype information supported by LabPro Information Manager and Data Management System. It accesses an expanded identification database designed to assist with the identification of organisms whose atypical biochemical tests cause their assigned frequency cutoff points to be exceeded. The program supports all current MicroScan identification databases. To begin your search, select a panel classification, identification level and identification database, then enter the biotype number to obtain the requested information.
