MicroScan 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.

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.

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.
