Dual growth detection technology
The BD Phoenix™ M50 instrument determines growth using both an oxidation-reduction indicator and turbidity growth detection to help provide both rapid and accurate susceptibility results.
True doubling dilutions
The BD Phoenix system utilizes on-panel doubling dilutions of antimicrobial concentrations for determination of MIC results.
Delayed growth algorithm
The BD Phoenix M50 instrument employs a delayed growth algorithm that may defer reporting for slow-growing organisms until additional instrument readings are collected. This feature enables an accurate determination of growth or no-growth, providing additional assurance that results are accurate.
The BD Phoenix system provides on-panel doubling dilutions of antimicrobials and built-in detection of resistance, including CPO, MRSA, mecA, VRSA, VRE, ESBL, HLAR, and iMLSb*.

Robust, customizable data management
The BD EpiCenter™ data management system offers the BDXpert system, which implements CLSI breakpoints and SIR interpretations. BD EpiCARE™ is an optional extension of the BD EpiCenter system that gives users the ability to define customized rules and actions to ensure compliance for the reporting of microbiology data that may be specific to their organization.
Modular and scalable
The BD Phoenix M50 instrument offers a compact and stackable design (up to two instruments) that allows for increased testing volumes by doubling capacity within the same footprint.
Ease of use
The system requires minimal maintenance, no reagent additions post inoculation and few supplemental tests for final result determination, and utilizes leak-resistant, room-temperature panel storage.
Automated inoculation preparation
The BD Phoenix AP automated inoculation preparation instrument may help to reduce sample preparation workflow burdens, reducing total hands-on time per sample by 50% compared to manual BD Phoenix preparation and by an average of 20% compared to selected competitive products. 1-2
