Mycology

The mycology range comes in a complete offer and is structured around an innovative decision tree:
Unique agglutination tests allowing the rapid orientation and early diagnosis for the most common species (C. glabrata, C. dubliensis, C. krusei, C. albicans).
– The ELIchrom FUNGI tray simplifying the identification of a broad spectrum of species.
– Solutions tailored to evaluate the resistance to the main antifungals needed to treat invasive (Fungifast AFG) or superficial (Candifast Es Twin) infections.
2-in-1 solutions combining the ID/AST steps to save time.

Liofilchem MIC Test Strips

The Liofilchem® MIC Test Strips is a quantitative assay for determining the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of antimicrobial agents against microorganisms to indicate appropriate patient treatment and for identifying resistance patterns.
Liofilchem® MIC Test Strips are made of special high quality paper impregnated with a predefined concentration gradient of antibiotic, across 15 two-fold dilutions like those of a conventional MIC method.
On one side of the strip a MIC scale in µg/mL is displayed and a code that identifies the antimicrobial agent. Liofilchem® MIC Test Strips are available in a large variety of antibiotic configurations. Each configuration is available in blister packs of 10 strips, 30 strips and 100 strips.

 

METHOD PRINCIPLE
When the Liofilchem® MIC Test Strip is applied onto an inoculated agar surface, the preformed exponential gradient of antimicrobial agent is transferred into the agar matrix. After 18 hours incubation or longer, a symmetrical inhibition ellipse centered along the strip is formed. The MIC is read directly from the scale in terms of µg/mL, at the point where the edge of the inhibition ellipse intersects with the MIC Test Strip.

Mast Antibiotic susceptibility test discs

Disc diffusion is still the most popular method for determining bacterial antibiotic susceptibility in the treatment of infectious disease, as highlighted by the variety of international standardised procedures eg.EUCAST( Europe), CLSI (USA), BSAC (UK), AFFSAPS (France), DIN (Germany) & ISC/WHO.

mastdiscsTM AST are available as an extensive range of antibiotic susceptibility test discs presented in vials, or plastic dispensing cartridges.

Manufactured and QC tested in accordance with the accepted limits and clinical standards required for the various national controls, mastdiscsTM AST are suitable for antibiotic susceptibility studies in laboratories worldwide.

  • Extensive range available from stock to suit all popular clinical applications.
  • Flexible, personalised service manufacturing antibiotic susceptibility discs to customer specification, with low minimum order quantity.
  • All discs are strictly quality controlled for antimicrobial potency and batch uniformity.
  • Discs are available to suit EUCAST, CLSI, BSAC and other laboratory standard recommendations.
  • Inhibition zone diameters can be read by eye or manually using calipers
