Detect the growth of aerobic, anaerobic and micro-aerophilic organisms from blood samples using Thermo Scientific™ Oxoid™ Signal™ Blood Culture System. Signal Blood Culture System is a unique one bottle manual media system accommodating all patient populations and scenarios. The system uses a special broth medium which enables a wide range of aerobes, anaerobes and microaerophilic organisms to be cultured in a single bottle. A positive result is indicated when the blood/broth mixture is forced into the signal device by the pressure created by growing organisms.
The blood system is normally a sterile environment, so the detection of bacteria in blood (bacteraemia) is always abnormal. Early detection of bacteraemia is of utmost importance because of the high mortality rates associated with this condition.
The Signal Blood Culture System is a unique one-bottle system suitable for use with both adult and pediatric samples, and requires only the most basic laboratory equipment, making it suitable for high- or low-level-usage laboratories. The Signal Blood Culture System is manufactured to the International Quality Standard ISO 9001:2000 and is CE marked according to the In Vitro Diagnostic Directive 98/79/EC.
Signal Blood Culture System comes complete with blood culture bottles filled with the blood culture medium, growth indicator devices and incubator trays.
