Efficient and rapid pathogen ID

The Easiest Mycobacteria Detection Ever

Pre-selecting patients for tuberculosis by manual microscopy of Auramine or Ziehl-Neelsen stained sputum smears is standard in most laboratories. However, manual microscopy of stained slides is a very time-consuming process. Automated slide scanning and image acquisition, combined with detection of mycobacteria by the Metafer slide scanning and automation platform saves many working hours and facilitates mycobacteria detection dramatically.

Specific Identification of Pathogens in Time of a Gram Stain

Direct Multiplex Imaging (DMI) is a novel hybridization technology for direct identification and differentiation of pathogenic microorganisms, even from challenging patient samples like sputum. Time-to-result (TTR), including sample preparation, takes just 35 minutes, thus making evidence-based antibiotic therapy possible at a very early stage. Available are assays for identification of bacteremia causing pathogens from positive blood cultures and for identification of nosocomial pneumonia causing bacteria from native patients samples without pre-culture.
