Description

Description

Simplify the identification of staphylococci, including staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS), with the Thermo Scientific™ Oxoid™ Microbact™ Staphylococcal 12S Kit. Each strip incorporates 12 tests based on sugar utilization and colorimetric enzyme detection. The sugar utilization tests rely on a pH indicator color change, while the enzyme detection substrates produce a colored end product or react with an added indicator. Each Staphylococcus spp. produces a different pattern of reactions, allowing the definitive identification of 22 clinically relevant species.

Coagulase-negative staphylococci have become important nosocomial pathogens due, in part, to the increased use of immunosuppressive regimes and indwelling medical devices. As a result, it has become imperative for clinical microbiology laboratories to identify CNS and other staphylococci to species level8. With this kit, Staphylococcus spp. are quickly and accurately identified so that proper, fast treatment for the patient may follow.

  • Fast: Definitive identifications in less than 24 hours
  • Simple: Simple test strip format
  • Easy-to-Read and Interpret: Results are clearly visible as distinct color reactions that can be interpreted using the Microbact Identification Package (MB1244A)
  • Comprehensive: Identifies 22 clinically significant Staphylococcus, including coagulase-negative and coagulase-positive staphylococci
  • Reliable: A combination of sugar utilization and colorimetric enzyme detection substrates based upon proven, published methods1-6

Additional items required: Microbact Software Program (MB1244A), Mineral Oil (MB1093A), Fast Blue Reagent (MB1588A).
