MICRONAUT-S Anaerobes MIC

Phenotypic detection of resistance in anaerobic pathogens

Najważniejsze informacje

MICRONAUT-S Anaerobes MIC

Based on the broth microdilution (BMD) procedure, the AST plate MICRONAUT-S Anaerobes MIC provides the tool for phenotypic detection of clinically relevant resistance mechanisms in anaerobic pathogens such as Clostridium spp., Bacteroides spp. and Peptostreptococcus spp.

The increasing microbial resistance observed for anaerobic bacteria requires a standardized routine antimicrobial susceptibility test (AST) of anaerobes in the microbiological lab.

The MICRONAUT-S Anaerobes MIC is used for effective determination of antimicrobial agents which are highly active against anaerobes, inclusive compounds such as tigecycline, moxifloxacin, or ertapenem.

It includes novel antibiotics like moxifloxacin, tigecycline and ertapenem, showing good antimicrobial efficacy against anaerobic bacteria.

It is the leading tool used in microdilution methods for antibiotic susceptibility testing of anaerobes and provides consistent results with gradient methodology, with both fast and slow-growing species.

The MICRONAUT-S Anaerobes MIC is designed to offer accurate methods for MICs evaluation without the technical, interpretation and reproducibility issues which can cause delays to a labs implementation of this research.
