- Sterile body fluids
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Because it's so easy to use, BacT/ALERT® 3D saves time, facilitates cross-training and helps prevent errors. This system offers immediate bottle recognition, putting you in control of bottle loading and unloading and virtually eliminating bottle handling errors during microbial detection testing. The system's automatic, built-in quality control, along with a low false positive rate and a rapid response time of this system, means you do more in less time with greater accuracy.
The latest generation of BacT/ALERT® Culture Media brings the most advanced, innovative microbial growth and detection technology to your laboratory. BacT/ALERT® media provide unsurpassed performance, in the detection of a wide variety of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi, and yeasts.
With flexible data management options of an automated microbial detection system, and available with many different system options, BacT/ALERT® 3D allows you to choose the best configuration for your laboratory.
Plastic Bottles Mean Safety
Safety is an important consideration for any microbial testing. bioMérieux is committed to providing the safest products possible to the microbiology laboratory. BacT/ALERT® bottles are made of unbreakable plastic to protect them from breakage. They are also lightweight to reduce the cost of disposal and shipping.
Results are the most important aspect of any microbial detection system. Built on bioMérieux's patented colorimetric technology, the BacT/ALERT® 3D demonstrates unsurpassed recovery of a wide range of organisms.
BacT/ALERT® 3D System Options
We've designed a microbial detection system to meet your individual needs. The modular design of the BacT/ALERT® 3D enables the most flexible, ergonomic configuration to meet space limitations. The control module manages all bottle inventory and data, while the incubator module performs the testing.
BacT/ALERT® 3D Combination Module – The BacT/ALERT® 3D Combination Module is an integrated system that uses only 20 inches of bench space. Now, even the smallest laboratories can get the highest-quality microbiology test results on-site.
BacT/ALERT® 3D 60 – The BacT/ALERT® 3D 60 is the latest addition to the BacT/ALERT® 3D product range. Our space-saving design has been optimized still further. Combined with all the advantages of the larger volume modules, the BacT/ALERT® 3D 60 ensures all laboratories can benefit from this technology. BacT/ALERT® 3D 60 easily handles an annual workload of up to 3,600 blood/body fluid culture bottles, or up to 500 mycobacteria tests.
OBSERVA data management software efficiently consolidates data and results as part of bioMérieux’s integrated solution for patient care. A single workstation manages patient data integration from both the BacT/ALERT® 3D and VITEK® 2. OBSERVA helps meet all your reporting needs and helps maintain the priorities of quality of care and cost control. Click here to view a demo of OBSERVA.
