The InTray™ Colorex™ Screen allows for simultaneous growth, observation, and chromogenic differentiation of selected pathogenic species frequently found in the urinary tract, including gram-positive and gramnegative bacteria. 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. The seal creates an airtight 2” diameter chamber providing 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. This removes 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 settings, but also off-site locations or austere environments. The InTray™ Colorex™ Screen can be stored up to twelve months if kept under refrigeration (2-8 °C). The InTray™ system is equipped with a small air filter, in addition to its airtight seal, creating a controlled air exchange. The airtight seal and controlled air exchange system maintain the integrity of the growth environment inside the device. The InTray™ Colorex™ Screen makes preliminary detection easy by producing distinctive color and morphology differences between selected pathogenic species, sometimes within as little as 24 hours. The InTray Colorex™ Screen inhibits the growth of yeasts, mold, and fungi. InTray™ Colorex™ Screen’s specially formulated media makes detection and preliminary identification easy while inhibiting potential interference in obtaining accurate results. Visual Results: • Escherichia coli - Dark Pink to Reddish • Enterococcus species - Turquoise Blue • Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Citrobacter -Metallic Blue • Proteus mirabilis - Brown with halo • Staphylococcus aureus - Golden, Opaque, small • Staphylococcus saprophyticus - Pink, Opaque, small QUALITY CONTROL The InTray™ Colorex™ Screen is tested with either clinical isolates or ATCC strains of the indicated species. At the time of manufacture, quality control tests are preformed on each lot of InTray™ Colorex™ Screen to ensure viability, doubling time, and sterility. These tests are repeated throughout the product shelf life by BioMed Diagnostics confirming the ability of the InTray™ Colorex™ Screen to support growth of selected pathogen
