NG Biotech launched a new test in 2018 to detect Carbapenimase enzymes in isolated organism off of a selective screen plate such as Colorex Supercarba. It differentiates the 5 most common Carbepenimases - KPC,OXA,NDM,IMP and Vim. The test is Rapid, Accurate and User Friendly, with results in 15 minutes or less.
With a reputation for innovation, COPAN is the leading manufacturer of collection and transport systems in the world. With its roots in pre-analytics, COPAN's collaboration with the clinical Microbiology community and commitment to innovation has lead the way for breakthroughs in sample collection, transport and preservation systems that advance and improve the quality of traditional and contemporary Microbiology assays.
Colorex Strep A is the latest in a line of new chromogenic media developed by CHROMagar. It is a new chromogenic formulation allowing for an easy to read and straightforward color differentiation of GAS colonies (in orange to red) among the other bacteria in the complex throat flora (colorless or blue colonies). This year we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the invention of chromogenic technology by Dr. Alain Rambach, founder of CHROMagar, in 1979. The introduction of this technology triggered a revolution in microbial diagnosis, highly improving and simplifying traditional culture techniques.
MTS™ is a quantitative assay for determining the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (M.I.C.) of antimicrobial agents against microorganisms and for detecting the resistance mechanisms. MTS™ are porous strips with special features (International Patent) that are impregnated with a predefined concentration gradient of antibiotic, across 15 two-fold dilutions of a conventional M.I.C. method. On one side of the strip is indicated a M.I.C. scale in µ/mL and a code that identifies the antimicrobial agent. For ESBL, MBL, GRD, AmpC and KPC detection, the double-sided gradient carries the appropriate diagnostic reagents. MTS™ are available in a variety of configurations and in packs of 10, 30 and 100 tests.
