Direct MIC Testing to Support Your Laboratory’s Antimicrobial Stewardship
The MicroScan portfolio of ID/AST panels supports unique institutional and geographic needs with a broad menu of antibiotic configurations and choice of inoculum preparation methods. With continued emergence of antimicrobial resistance, our direct MIC testing methodology provides confidence for detecting subtle changes in susceptibility results.
- Support a variety of formulary needs with current antimicrobials and dilutions
- Test both ID and AST in a single combo panel to optimize workflow
- Select MIC-only panel formats to complement MALDI-TOF ID* testing protocols
- Use ID-only panels for targeted testing needs
- Use either Prompt† or turbidity inoculation method for workflow flexibility
- Rely on visual confirmation of biochemical and susceptibility results for added confidence in unusual results
- Get integrated ESβL confirmation on most Gram-negative panels
Combat Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae with a New MicroScan Panel
The emergence and spread of carbapenemase-producing carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CP-CRE) is a significant clinical and public health concern. Infections caused by CP-CRE are generally found in patients with underlying health problems. Due to the widespread use of carbapenems as empirical therapy, the frequency of CRE infections is increasing.
Combat emerging resistance with the most clinically relevant panels of antibiotics and dilutions, including the introduction of meropenem/vaborbactam (MEV), effective in treatment of infections caused by select KPC (Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase) producing CRE pathogens.
Reduce the need for offline testing with the new Neg MIC 56 Panel, which includes:
- The latest agents with activity vs. select CRE organisms:
- Extended fluoroquinolone dilutions support evolving Enterobacteriaceae and P. aeruginosa breakpoints
- Minocycline for an alternative to MDR (multidrug-resistant) Enterobacteriaceae and Acinetobacter
- 30 antibiotic tests including all 3 carbapenems and ESβL confirmation
