Precise, reliable and flexible AST with the latest antimicrobials  

Precise, reliable and flexible AST with the latest antimicrobials  

To effectively combat antimicrobial resistance, you need the right antimicrobials at the right dose. To improve patient care outcomes, you need faster, more reliable antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) devices. Whether you prefer manual or automated solutions, you’ll find the right fit for your specific susceptibility testing needs and volume requirements with the Thermo Scientific™ Sensititre™ ID/AST System.

The Sensititre System is a scalable and flexible AST solution, accommodating microbiology laboratories of all sizes, which utilizes both in vitro diagnostic (IVD) and research use only (RUO), 96-well microtitre plates for broth microdilution. The Sensititre System can help the microbiology lab provide results that reduce uncertainty for critical care decision makers, promote antibiotic de-escalation and antibiotic stewardship, and help reduce pharmacy costs.

Make confident decisions with a true MIC for AST

Obtaining a precise minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) ensures the correct dosage of an antimicrobial or antibiotic to limit resistance. Some AST systems calculate the MIC value by extrapolating growth curves and applying dedicated algorithms. The Sensititre System generates true MIC results based on the actual growth of the organism. A true MIC reveals whether a bacterial isolate is susceptible to a particular drug, how susceptible the organism is and the exact point at which the isolate becomes resistant. When comparing your MIC results against the latest clinical breakpoints from EUCAST and CLSI, you can trust the value of a true MIC to deliver the accuracy required for optimal patient outcomes, and to track emerging resistance.

Consolidate your susceptibility testing on a single platform

With over 300 antimicrobials available in extended dilution ranges, the Sensititre System allows you to consolidate confirmatory tests while meeting FDA, CLSI and EUCAST breakpoint requirements.
