Why the BD Phoenix automated identification and susceptibility testing system?

The BD Phoenix automated identification and susceptibility testing system offers rapid, accurate and reliable identification and susceptibility results. These capabilities are due to the incorporation of an oxidation-reduction indicator with turbidity measurement for growth detection, as well as full on-panel antimicrobial concentrations and the BDXpert system for data analysis. Specific delayed resistance features provide assurance that BD Phoenix system results are not only rapid but also accurate.

Features and benefits

Resistance marker detection

This feature is included on every panel of the appropriate type, eliminating the need for additional tests or added incubation. This feature speeds reporting and reduces additional or repeat testing.

In addition to accurately confirming known resistance, the BD Phoenix system is an industry leader in rapidly detecting resistance in organisms that have historically been susceptible.

Lab workflow

With the BD Phoenix AP instrument, the BD Phoenix system incorporates state-of-the art technology to offer laboratory workflow efficiency and standardized isolate inoculum. The BD Phoenix AP instrument was the first in the industry to offer automated nephelometry in ID/AST testing. This step has traditionally been the most time-consuming, manual step associated with isolate preparation.

Identification results from the BD Bruker MALDI biotyper are seamlessly integrated with the MIC result generated from the BD Phoenix instrument via the BD EpiCenter data management system to create the susceptibility profile. Additionally, the BD EpiCenter data management system offers an intuitive and time-saving plate mapping feature to guide the BD Bruker MALDI plate spotting process and to reduce the risk of transcription errors.
