InTray™ Pseudomonas Isolation Agar - 1

InTray™ Pseudomonas Isolation Agar For the isolation of Pseudomonas species and differentiation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in clinical and environmental specimens. This device integrates with direct plating and membrane filtration procedures. value High Throughput - Once the device is inoculated no other preparation is required saving time Cost Savings - Reduces laboratory materials, medical waste benefits Safe - Fully enclosed InTray™ system prevents contamination and reduces exposure to collected samples Convenient - Combines collection, culture, and observation into one device Easy to use - 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 product specifics Storage - Refrigeration recommended (2-8 °C) Shelf Life - 6 months Incubation - 18 - 48 hours at 35 ±2°C Quantity Sold 20 Pack (20-2201) 5 Pack (20-2207) product bio BioMed Diagnostics' InTray™ Pseudomonas Isolation serves as a microbiology sample collection, transport, and culture device for simultaneous growth, observation, and chromogenic differentiation of 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 InTray™ system consists of a re-closable outer seal containing an optically clear, anti-fog window, which 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 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 in laboratory and controlled point-of-care settings as well as off-site locations or austere environments. The InTray™ Pseudomonas Isolation 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™ Pseudomonas Isolation makes preliminary detection easy by producing distinctive color and morphology differences between the growth of P. aeruginosa and other organisms within as little as 18 hours. In addition, InTray™ Pseudomonas inhibits the growth of yeasts, mold, and fungi increasing specificity. Visual Results: P. aeruginosa--Appears green during first 18 hours of incubation, and as incubation continues P. aeroginosa emerges blue to blue-green with pigment diffusion into the medium. quality control The InTray™ Pseudomonas Isolation is tested with ATCC™ strains of selected species. At the time of manufacture, quality control tests are performed on each lot of InTray™ Pseudomonas Isolation to ensure viability and sterility using. These tests are repeated throughout the product shelf life by BioMed Diagnostics confirming the ability to support growth of selected species while maintaining specificity. background P. aeruginosa is an opportunistic, gram-negative bacterium that can infect the eyes and ears as well as burns and wound sites. The bacteria can also cause urinary tract, respiratory system, bone, skin and soft tissue infections. In healthy individuals infections are rare, but in hospitalized individuals with injuries, on certain antibiotics or in patients who are immunosuppressed due to cancer or AIDS infections are more common with an increased morbidity and mortality rate. The young and elderly are also at an increased risk of infection. P. aeruginosa is one of the most common gramnegative bacterial causes of Hospital Acquired Infections with incident rates of up to 4 per 1000 discharges according to the CDC. This bacterium is commonly found in water and soil and can easily be brought into a healthcare setting from fruits and vegetables as well visitors and hospital personnel.
