VALUE High Throughput - Once the device is inoculated no other culture preparation is required saving time Cost Savings - Reduces laboratory materials and medical waste High specificity - 100% sensitivity and 98.4% Selective for the growth of Gram-negative bacteria expressing reduced susceptibility to antibiotics of the carbapenem family BENEFITS Convenient - Combines collection, culture, and observation into one device Easy to use - Direct plating methods can be used, no need for pre-enrichment broth, and minimal lab procedures and equipment are needed Easy to store - 6 month shelf life under refrigeration (2-8 °C) 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 - 18 - 24 hours at 37 °C Quantity Sold -5 Pack (10-7207) 20 Pack (10-7201) For the detection of carbapenem class resistance in gram-negative bacteria; often used in identification of Hospital Acquired Infections using stool or urine samples. This device can also be used to detect pathogenic bacteria on surfaces. BioMed Diagnostics' InTray™ Colorex™ KPC serves as a microbiology sample collection, transport, and culture device. This device is designed for simultaneous growth, observation, and chromogenic differentiation of microbes resistant to carbepenem class antimicrobials including Klebsiella pneumonia, Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas species. 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™ KPC test is fully enclosed and does not require any reagents or special procedure 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™ KPC makes preliminary detection easy by producing distinctive color differences between the growth of the selected species within as little as 18-24 hours. In addition, the InTray™ Colorex™ KPC inhibits the growth of yeasts, mold, and fungi increasing specificity. The specially formulated chromogenic media makes detection and preliminary visual identification easy, while inhibiting potential interference in obtaining accurate results. Visual Results: Carbapenem Resistant Strains • E. coli - Red • Klebsiella Enterobacter, Citrobacter -Metallic blue • Psuedomononas - Cream to translucent • Non-Carbapenem resistant strains- Inhibited QUALITY CONTROL The InTray™ Colorex™ KPC is tested with ATCC™ strains of selected species. At the time of manufacture, quality control tests are performed on each lot of InTray™ Colorex™ KPC to ensure viability 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.
