Advantages of BD Bactec TM Fx blood culture
- Fluorescence technology detection:
Microorganisms if present, metabolize nutrients in the Bactec culture vial and release CO2 and utilize O2 in the medium. This increases the fluorescence of the vial sensors which is continuously monitored by the instrument and the vial flags positive indicating presumptive presence of viable organisms. Thus rapid detection of growth is enabled.
- More Sensitive, Accurate and Efficient
- Lesser Chances of Contamination
- Superior Resin based media which inactivate antimicrobials that may interfere with microorganism growth and mechanically break up WBCs and RBCs so intracellular organisms released and enhance sensitivity.
- Different culture bottles with media specifically optimized for different requirements like aerobic culture, anaerobic culture, pediatric sample, fungi and mycobacteria, etc are
- Agitation provides additional enhancement of organism growth and detection.
