BD MGIT™ - Tubes (manual, 4 ml)
The MGIT™ Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tubes contain 4 ml of Middlebrook 7H9 Broth base with a fluorescent indicator and is intended for the manual detection and recovery of mycobacteria.
The broth is contained in a plastic tube with screw-top cap and supplemented with BD MGIT™ OADC enrichment and BD MGIT™ PANTA™ antibiotic mixture.
Acceptable specimen types are digested and decontaminated clinical specimens (except urine) and sterile body fluids (except blood).
A culture-positive sample is identified by the observation of non-homogenous turbidity or fluorescence, the latter of which is observed using a 365 mm UV transilluminator, a longwave UV light (Wood´s lamp) or the BD MicroMGIT Reader.
BD MGIT™ - OADC Enrichment
The BD MGIT™ OADC enrichment provides substances essential for the rapid growth of mycobacteria in BD MGIT™ 4 ml Tubes. OADC stands for oleic acid, albumin, dextrose and catalase.
BD MGIT™ - PANTA™ Antibiotic Mixture
The BD MGIT™ PANTA™ Antibiotic Mixture suppresses growth of contaminating or normal flora, enhancing growth and detection of mycobacteria in BD MGIT™ Tubes.
Each vial contains a lyophilized antibiotic mixture of polymyxin B, amphotericin B, nalidixic acid, trimethoprim and azlocillin.
BD MGIT™ - AST SIRE Test Kit (manual)
The BD MGIT™ AST SIRE Testing Kit is used for susceptibility testing of M.tuberculosis in culture to streptomycin, isoniazid, rifampin and ethambutol (SIRE) in a qualitative test lasting 4-13 days. The kit contains 2 vials of each lyophilized antimicrobic (S, I, R, and E) which must be reconstituted with 4 ml of sterile/deionized water.
BD BACTEC™ - MicroMGIT Fluorescence Reader
The BD BACTEC™ MicroMGIT Fluorescence Reader is used for the qualitative reading of fluorescence in BD MGIT™ 4 ml tubes. The Reader has a standard 9 volt battery, has a low voltage indicator, and has dimensions of 9.2 cm x 14.5 cm x 12.0 cm. (WxDxH). A calibration tube is included.
BD BACTEC™ - MicroMGIT Calibrator
Used for calibration of the BD BACTEC™ - MicroMGIT Fluorescence Reader.
