BioMed’s patented InTray™ system saves time and money while reducing exposure to collected samples by combining several procedures into a single device. The patented InTray™ system consists of a re-closable outer seal containing an optically clear, anti-fog window, which creates an airtight 2” diameter chamber with a large enough area to streak for isolation. The innovative design of the InTray™ high-performance viewing window makes it possible to place the device directly under a microscope removing the need to prepare slides and prevents unnecessary exposure of the sample after inoculation. BioMed’s InTray™ system negates the need for multiple procedures increasing throughput and decreasing the cost of laboratory materials and medical waste. Additionally, the InTray™ design lends itself to high performance not only in laboratory and controlled point-of-care settings, but also off-site locations or austere environments. The InTray™ Colorex™ ECC test is a fully enclosed system and does not require any reagents or complicated procedures to inoculate or obtain results. The InTray™ system is also equipped with a small air filter creating a controlled air exchange. The InTray™ system is ideal for use in the field and in austere environments due to its low reliance on laboratory equipment. The InTray™ Colorex™ ECC makes preliminary detection easy by producing distinctive color and morphology differences between the growth of E. coli and other coliforms. This includes all lactose positive organisms within as little as 18-24 hours. The InTray™ Colorex™ ECC inhibits the growth of mold, fungi, and grampositive bacteria, increasing specificity. The specially formulated chromogenic media makes detection and preliminary visual identification easy, while inhibiting potential interference in obtaining accurate results. Visual Results: • E. coli - Blue • Other Coliforms - Mauve • Other Bacteria - Colorless or inhibited QUALITY CONTROL The InTray™ Colorex™ ECC is tested with ATCC™ strains of the indicated species. At the time of manufacture, quality control tests are preformed on each lot of InTray™ Colorex™ ECC to ensure viability, doubling time, and sterility. These tests are repeated throughout the product shelf life by BioMed Diagnostics confirming the ability to support growth of selected species while maintaining specificity.
