  • Descripción del producto
    BacT/ALERT - FA Reagent Bottle || The BacT/ALERT Microbial Detection System is used to determine if microorganisms are present in blood or other normally sterile body fluid samples taken from a patient suspected of having bacteremial/fungemia. The BacT/ALERT System and culture bottles provide both a microbial detection system and a culture media with suitable nutritional and environmental conditions for organisms commonly encountered in blood infections and other normally sterile body fluid infections. An inoculated bottle is placed into the instrument where it is incubated and continuously monitored for the presence of microorganisms that will grow in the BacT/ALERT FA bottle. BacT/ALERT FA Culture Bottles are used with the BacT/ALERT Microbial Detection System in qualitative procedures for enhanced recovery and detection of aerobic and facultative anaerobic microorganisms (bacterial and fungi) from blood and other normally sterile body fluids.
