Confidently detect emerging antibiotic resistance with the gold-standard level accuracy1,2 of broth microdilution coupled with time-saving benefits of automation to optimize patient care, support antimicrobial stewardship, and improve lab efficiency with the Sensititre™ ARIS HiQ™ System.   

  • Efficient plate handling: central turntable for loading and unloading Sensititre plates via robotic plate transfer and advanced sorting options to optimize read times and efficient plate removal
  • Flexible loading: batch load and unload capability for improved testing workflow
  • Seamless LIS connectivity: Thermo Scientific™ Sensititre SWIN™ software connection is configured to meet LIS connectivity requirements
  • Large capacity, small footprint: to process more tests at one time with limited impact to bench space.


The Sensititre ARIS HiQ system helps microbiology laboratories deliver accurate antimicrobial susceptibility testing of the most commonly prescribed antibiotics, as well as novel, last-resort therapies, to provide meaningful results for clinicians, stewardship teams, and public health departments. By providing critical data to support decisions on prescribing the right antibiotic, at the right dose, at the right time, the Sensititre AST System supports the effort to improve patient outcomes and to ensure the right actions are taken to protect the future of healthcare, veterinary, and agriculture industries against the threat of antibiotic resistance.
