InTray™ Brilliant Green - 1

InTray™ Brilliant Green Agar For the selective isolation of Salmonella species other than S. typhi from fecal samples, water and foodstuffs. This medium is included in procedures in Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater. VALUE High Throughput – Once the device is inoculated, no other preparation is required saving time Cost Savings – Reduces laboratory materials and medical waste High specificity – Selective against the growth of S. typhy and S. paratyphi PRODUCT BIO BioMed’s InTray™ Brilliant Green is a microbiology sample collection, transport, culture device for the growth and observation of Salmonella species other than S. typhi. BioMed’s patented InTray™ System saves time and money while reducing exposure to collected samples by combining several procedures into a single device. The InTray™ system is ideal for use in the field and in austere environments due to its low reliance on laboratory equipment. Visual Results: • Salmonella sp. (other than S. typhi and S. paratyphi) – White to red, opaque colonies surrounded by red zones in the medium • S. typhi and S. paratyphi – No growth to trace growth • Shigella – No growth to trace growth • Escherichia coli, Enterobacter, Klebsiella – Yellow to green-yellow colonies surrounded by intense yellow-green zones in medium BENEFITS Convenient - Combines collection, culture, and observation into one device • Pseudomonas – Pink to red colonies • Proteus – No growth to trace growth Easy to use - Minimal lab procedures and equipment needed Easy to store – 6 month shelf life under refrigeration Easy observation – No fogging or condensation on the InTray™ viewing window Safe - Fully enclosed InTray™ system prevents contamination and reduces exposure to collected samples PRODUCT SPECIFICS Storage –Refrigeration (2-8 °C) Shelf Life – 6 months Incubation – 24–48 hours at 35 ± 2°C Quantity Sold 20 Pack (39-1001) 5 Pack (39-1000) • Gram-positive bacteria – No growth to trace growth The patented InTray™ system consists of an outer, re-sealable label with an optically clear, anti-fog window covering the media, which creates an airtight seal over the 2” diameter agar surface. The innovative design of the InTray™, with its unique, high-performance viewing window, can be placed directly under a microscope while remaining sealed removing the need to prepare slides or expose the sample once the device has been inoculated. By combining both growth and observation into one fully enclosed system, the InTray™ system increases throughput while decreasing the cost of laboratory materials and medical waste. Additionally, the InTray™ design lends itself to high performance in laboratory or controlled point-of-care settings as well as off-site locations or austere environments. The InTray™ Brilliant Green is a fully enclosed system and does not require any reagents or complicated procedures to inoculate or obtain presumptive results. The InTray™ system is also equipped with a small air filter creating a controlled air exchange. QUALITY CONTROL At the time of manufacture, quality control testing is performed on each lot of the InTray™ Brilliant Green using ATCC strains to ensure viability and sterility. These tests are repeated through the end of the product shelf life by BioMed Diagnostics confirming the ability of the InTray™ Brilliant Green to support growth while maintaining specificity. BACKGROUND Brilliant Green Agar was first described in 1925 and later modified in 1935. The medium is included in Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater. The brilliant green dye included in the medium inhibits gram-positive bacteria while phenol red acts as a pH indicator for certain organisms. Phenol red changes to a yellow color due to
