BD BACTEC™ MGIT™ Automated Mycobacterial Detection System

Contact Us

The BD BACTEC™ MGIT™ Automated Mycobacterial Detection System is a fully automated solution for mycobacterial liquid culture and susceptibility testing.

Features and Benefits
960 system

The BD BACTEC™ MGIT™ 960 system is for high-volume mycobacteria growth, detection and susceptibility testing and is designed to meet the needs of medium- and high-volume laboratories.

320 system

The BD BACTEC™ MGIT™ 320 system is designed to help smaller-capacity laboratories quickly and accurately detect TB.

Onboard incubation

Safe and efficient onboard incubation eliminates sharps, and the need to handle or transfer tubes once the system is loaded, reducing labour requirements while adding a layer of operator safety.

Data management

The optional BD EpiCenter™ data management system performs statistical analyses and accommodates different customer preferences. It also provides simple specimen tracking along with a flexible and dynamic reporting system for more in-depth data management needs.

Simplicity and performance

The system was designed with simplicity in mind, helping maximise productivity with minimal staffing and training.

Tube placement
The system automatically directs tube placement and indicates positives with both a visual and an audible signal as they occur.
Nonradiometric technology

The system uses BACTEC™ MGIT™ mycobacterial growth indicator tubes and patented sensors, which efficiently leverage advanced fluorometric technology to facilitate highly accurate detection of O2 consumption without sharps.

Quality control
The system continuously performs automated quality control to ensure precise and reliable operation, and provides results as positive/negative and numerical growth units.
Ease of use
The system lets you simply scan and load the plastic sample tubes, and then walk away.
Continuous monitoring

The system identifies positives as they occur, speeding results to improve patient care, reduce hospital stays and optimise equipment and staff utilisation.
