InTray™ SDA - 1

VALUE High Throughput - Once the device is inoculated no other preparation is required saving time Cost Savings -Reduces laboratory materials and medical waste BENEFITS Convenient - Combines collection, culture, and observation into one device Easy to use - Minimal lab procedures and equipment needed Easy to store - 12 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 - 12 months Incubation - 18-48 hours (1 to 14 days for Trichophyton) InTray™ SDA (Sabouraud Dextrose Agar) and InTray™ SDA+PVG Antibiotics (Polymyxin B, Vancomycin & Gentamicin) The Unites States Pharmacopoeia (USP) recommends SAB agar for use in performing total combined mold and yeast counts (Microbial Limits Tests) Quantity Sold InTray™ SDA 20 Pack (15-1001) 5 Pack (15-1000) InTray™ SDA + PVG 20 Pack (18-1001) 5 Pack (18-1000) PRODUCT BIO BioMed Diagnostics' InTray™ SDA and InTray™ SDA+ PVG are general purpose microbiology sample collection, transport, culture and observation devices that allow for simultaneous growth and observation of pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi including yeasts and dermatophytes. By combining several procedures into a single device, BioMed’s patented InTray™ system saves time and money, while reducing exposure to collected samples. The 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. By combining both growth and observation into one fully enclosed device, 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™ SDA and InTray™ SDA+ PVG are fully enclosed and don't 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 airtight seal and controlled air exchange system maintain the integrity of the growth environment inside the device allowing only clean, filtered air to reach the media. For Isolation of fungi from potentially contaminated specimens, best practice suggests the selective InTray™ SDA+ PVG test should be run in parallel with the non-selective InTray™ SDA. QUALITY CONTROL At the time of manufacture, quality control tests are preformed on each lot of InTray™ SDA and InTray™ SDA+ PVG using ATCC™ strains to ensure viability and sterility. These tests are repeated throughout the product shelf life by BioMed Diagnostics confirming the ability of these devices to support growth. BACKGROUND The InTray™ SDA is a slightly selective, general-purpose medium devised by Sabouraud and is used in qualitative procedures for the cultivation of pathogenic and non-pathogenic fungi. Sabouraud dextrose media are peptone media supplemented with dextrose to support growth of fungi. Peptones are sources of nitrogenous growth factors, the carbohydrate that provides the energy source for the growth of microorganisms. SDA is recommended in the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) for the use in performing total combined mold and yeasts counts (Microbial Limits Tests). The InTray SDA + PVG, with the addition of polymyxin B, vancomycin, and gentamicin is a modification designed to increase fungal specificity by bacterial inhibition. For Isolation of fungi from potentially contaminated specimens, best practice suggests the selective InTray™ SDA+ PVG test should be run in parallel with the non-selective InTray™ SDA.
