InTray™ XLT4 - 1

InTray™ XLT4 For the isolation of non-typhi Salmonella species from samples contaminated with fecal matter; commonly used with environmental drag swabs or clinical stool samples VALUE High Throughput - Once the device is inoculated no other preparation is required saving time Cost Savings - Reduces laboratory materials and medical waste High specificity - Most organisms other than 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 needed Easy to store - 12 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 - 12 months Incubation - 18-24 hours at 35°C PRODUCT BIO BioMed Diagnostics' InTray™ XLT4 is a microbiology sample collection, transport, and culture device for the simultaneous growth and observation of non-Typhi Salmonella. 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™ XLT4 is a fully enclosed system and does not require any reagents or complicated procedures to inoculate or obtain presumptive results. The InTray™ system is also equipped with a small air filter creating a controlled air exchange, which maintains the integrity of the growth environment inside the device. The InTray™ XLT4 makes preliminary detection easy by producing distinctive color differences between the growth of non-Typhi Salmonella species and other organisms within as little as 18-24 hours. In addition, the growth of yeasts, mold, fungi, and other bacteria are inhibited increasing specificity. Visual Results: • Non-Typhi (H2S-Positive) Salmonella species - Black or black centered with yellow periphery • H2S-Negative Salmonella species - Pinkish yellow • Citrobacter species- Yellow with no evidence of blackening • Other organisms - Marked to complete inhibition QUALITY CONTROL The InTray™ XLT4 is tested with ATCC™ strains of the indicated species. At the time of manufacture, quality control tests are preformed on each lot of InTray™ XLT4 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. BACKGROUND Clinical Salmonella is a foodborne pathogen and infections caused by this species remain a major worldwide health problem. According to the CDC, in 2008 Salmonella infections had an incidence rate of 40,000 new cases a year within the US. In Europe, it is reported as the primary cause of collective “toxi-infections.” According to a recent WHO report, Salmonella infections are responsible for 2 million deaths per year from diarrhea. It is especially important to identify non-Typhi Salmonella species in clinical specimens, as treatment is generally separate from other Salmonella species. Furthermore, traditional antibiotic treatments can increase the risk of relapse in cases of non-Typhi Salmonella, according to the Ontario Agency for Health Protection and
