Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing

Satisfy your antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) requirements with high performance automated and manual test products to help ensure patients are on the most appropriate treatment plan. Our AST products are designed with the user in mind and with what matters most: accurate, reliable and
consistent results.

Automated Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing

Optimize patient care, support antimicrobial stewardship and improve lab efficiency Join the growing movement towards automated broth microdilution for confident antimicrobial susceptibility testing. With a longstanding history of AST accuracy, the Sensititre System delivers accurate antimicrobial susceptibility testing for the most commonly prescribed antibiotics as well as novel, last-resort therapies. A full range of standard AST plates, as well as customizable options, offer access to over 300 antimicrobials with wide dilution ranges. The flexible system is designed for laboratories of all sizes to support timely clinical decisions aimed at optimizing therapy.

Manual antimicrobial testing solutions

Choose your preferred manual antimicrobial susceptibility testing solution from our range of flexible, customizable testing options to accommodate laboratories of all sizes, including solutions to achieve true minimum inhibitory concentration results.

Custom Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing

Choose from over 240 antimicrobials to design a Thermo Scientific™ Sensititre™ Custom Plate tailored to your formulary, dilution ranges and patient population.Sensititre custom plate capabilities enable you to design AST tailored to your formulary and patient population. With dilution ranges of your choice and the ability to update formats conveniently, you get relevant results that are based on real-time resistance trends and local epidemiology, allowing you to improve clinical success and effectively manage resistance in your institution.

Sensititre Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing System

Make confident decisions with gold standard-level1 MIC accuracy for AST
Obtaining an accurate 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 MIC results based on the actual growth of the organism. An MIC based on direct measurement 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 direct MIC to deliver the accuracy required to guide optimal patient outcomes, and to track emerging resistance.
