Nonradiometric technology

The system uses BD BBL™ MGIT™ media and patented sensors, which efficiently leverage advanced fluorometric technology to facilitate highly accurate detection of O2 consumption without sharps.

Quality control
The system continuously performs automated quality control to ensure precise and reliable operation, and provides results as positive/negative and numerical growth units.
Ease of use
The system lets you simply scan and load the plastic sample tubes, and then walk away.
Continuous monitoring
The system identifies positives as they occur, speeding results to improve patient care, reduce hospital stays and optimize equipment and staff utilization.
