BD BACTEC™ Blood Culture Media

BD offers a complete line of blood culture media for the detection of aerobes, anaerobes, facultative anaerobes, yeast, fungi and mycobacteria, all specifically developed to help improve time to detection and organism recovery, which allow for shorter time to appropriate therapy.1,3-6

 


In addition, BD BACTEC™ blood culture vials are fully compatible with a standard blood collection wingset with preattached holder and do not require an additional transfer device, thus potentially reducing the risk of contamination and accidental needlestick injuries.

BD BACTEC™ Perfect Media Pair

Detection and identification of anaerobic bacteria in blood cultures is a well-recognized challenge in clinical microbiology.4


The combination of BD BACTEC™ Plus Aerobic/F Culture Vials and BD BACTEC™ Lytic/10 Anaerobic/F Culture Vials ensures fast detection and optimal organism recovery of both aerobic and anaerobic organisms, with proven performance in the detection of anaerobic organisms which make up 1-17% of all positive blood cultures but are associated with 15-30% of the mortality rate.1,4-6

BD BACTEC™ FX Blood Culture System

We recognize that standardization is important to you. The BD BACTEC™ FX blood culture system offers the same continuum of care across the entire healthcare system as the benefits of our instrumentation are consistent from small to large size labs.


The scalable and modular BD BACTEC™ FX Instrument allows for simple, and rapid workflow across multiple sites of a healthcare system. In addition, the possibility of near-patient incubation with the BD BACTEC™ FX40 Instrument helps reduce time to a reportable blood culture result which may enable earlier decision-making regarding antimicrobial treatment.2
