If you are visiting the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and infectious Diseases (ECCMID), 7–10 May, in Milan then make sure you stop by booth 523, where we will be exhibiting exciting new products and discussing the microbiology of tomorrow:
Our newly improved chromogenic medium that saves valuable time for infection control teams by allowing rapid and reliable screening for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). In trials, Brilliance™ MRSA 2 Agar performed better than previous formulations and alternative commercially available chromogenic MRSA media. To find out more visit the stand.
Coming soon, this formulation is a powerful new weapon in the battle with carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae. As Enterobacteriaceae, E. coli in particular, continue to gain prominence as a cause of surgical site and blood stream infection, this medium is the perfect partner to Brilliance ESBL Agar for screening for resistance in Gram negatives.
These easy-to-use test panels provide accurate and reliable identifications of a broad range of micro-organisms in just four hours – and in as little as two hours for selected organisms. Download the RapID product range brochure and to find out more visit "Oxoid Extends Range of Rapid Identification Tests”.
Soon to be available, PathoDxtra™ Strep Grouping Kit is the complete, faster approach to Strep Group testing. Like the enzyme tests, this acid extraction test reliably detects Group D Streps. However, because the extraction fluid is hydrated and ready to use, you still experience acid-kit speed.
M.I.C.Evaluators™ are easy to read and handle. Each strip is individually packed – you just peel apart the foil and the strip presents itself, ready for use. To read more about our M.I.C.E. strips that are available for a wide range of antibiotics visit "Accurate determination of MIC values".
For all this, the opportunity to win an iPad, and more, visit us on booth 523.
