Ready to use AST reagent strips to determine on-scale MICs
Clinicians often need more information than what primary AST can provide. Recognized around the world for their proven performance, ETEST® ready to use reagent strips determine on-scale MICs.
Determine the MIC of fastidious, slow-growing or nutritionally deficient micro-organisms
Confirm or detect low-level or new resistance mechanisms
Test new/non-routine antimicrobials
Fine-tune antimicrobial treatment
ETEST® strips – the original gradient MIC strips – are considered a gold standard by many. It lives up to its reputation for reliably determining the on-scale Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) of antibiotics, antifungal agents and anti-mycobacterial agents. ETEST® is a predefined, stable gradient of 15 antimicrobial concentrations on a plastic strip. It is a simple, cost-effective tool that offers results when you need more precision than what automated or Kirby-Bauer antimicrobial susceptibility tests (AST) tests provide. ETEST® has an extensive range of over 100 antimicrobial references available in the following categories: Antibiotics, Antifungals, Antimycobacterials, and Antimicrobial Resistance Detection (ARD).
