Why BD BACTEC™ blood culture systems?

Clinicians rely on blood culture testing to diagnose bloodstream infections. As such, blood culture qualifies as one of the most important functions of the microbiology laboratory. BD BACTEC blood culture systems critically support accurate testing with high performance, ease of use and media quality.


Susceptibility and Identification

BD Phoenix™ M50 Automated Microbiology System, with its unique technology for susceptibility testing, provides high accuracy combined with rapid time to result. Because MRSA, VRE and Extended Spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) are the most important resistance markers linked to HAIs, the performance of the laboratory's ID-AST system to detect these mechanisms is critical.
