BD BACTEC™ FX Blood Culture System

Contact Us

The BD BACTEC™ FX blood culture system builds on the proven history of previous BD BACTEC™ instrumentation, with advanced fluorescence detection technology, exceptional media performance and instrument reliability—adding vial-activated workflow, advanced ergonomics, blood culture observation and customer-focused data management. The easy-to-use workflow comes in a compact, modular design, which can be adapted to multiple space- and time-saving configurations for your laboratory staff.

Features and Benefits
Intuitive capabilities
The system enables a unique vial-activated workflow that helps reduce hands-on time, identifies anonymous vials and utilizes an interface with a conveniently located LCD touch screen, status indicators and a barcode scanner at each module.
Innovative design
The system offers efficient workflow in a compact, modular format.
Intelligent data management
It provides data management with enhanced blood culture observation—in and out of the laboratory, helping reduce workflow interruptions and communicate preliminary or final results to caregivers.
Quick detection
By helping detect positive blood cultures early, the system may also help you more quickly implement therapy to positively affect patient outcomes and reduce lengths of stay.

Compatibility with BD Vacutainer® blood collection systems

BD BACTEC™ blood culture bottles are designed to be fully compatible with the BD Vacutainer® blood collection system, reducing the risk of accidental needlestick injuries during blood collection and subculturing.
