MicroScan Conventional Panels

Your trusted Pathway to Prescription providing antimicrobial resistance detection to combat MDROs

MDROs are the cause of:
2.8 Million Infections and 35,000 deaths annually1 As the foundation of MicroScan ID/AST products, conventional panels deliver gold-standard1 accuracy through real-time detection of growth and emerging resistance. This reduces the need for expensive repeat and ancillary testing, providing timely results your laboratory can trust.

To determine which MicroScan panels best fit your needs, use our easy-to-navigate MicroScan Panel Guide. Simply choose the antibiotics that define your formulary, and our tool will produce the options that best fit your criteria.

Beckman Coulter’s MicroScan panel options for routine and critical isolate testing will enable your laboratory to solve the toughest emerging resistance challenges. Experience the benefits of MicroScan with our state-of-the art selection of panels that provide:

Updated breakpoints for CAP checklist confidence
Expanded dilutions for future breakpoint changes
Heightened security with new LabPro v5.0 software platform
New drugs for treating resistant Gram-negative infections such as ceftazidime-avibactam, meropenem-vaborbactam and ceftalozane-tazobactam

  • Support a variety of formulary needs with current antimicrobials, dilutions and breakpoints
  • 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
  • Utilize PROMPT† or turbidity inoculum method for workflow flexibility
  • Rely on visual confirmation of biochemical and susceptibility results for added confidence in unusual results

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.

LabPro V4.42 or greater Biotype Lookup tool

PLEASE NOTE: The LabPro V4.41 Biotype Lookup tool is no longer available for use. All customers should use the V4.42 tool.
