Overview

Accurate and timely diagnosis can enable clinicians to make informed decisions, so they can help guide treatment for their patients.  The BD BBL™ Sensi-Disc™ portfolio provides labs with an accurate, convenient, and broad range of disk diffusion solutions.  One of the latest additions to our FDA-approved disk diffusion test portfolio is the Cefiderocol 30µg disc (28546).

Features and Benefits
Quality

BD’s stringent quality standards and experience in disc development and manufacturing results in discs that produce accurate and consistent results.

Comprehensive portfolio

To help address your emerging ID/AST needs, we continue to evolve our broad disk diffusion portfolio of +110 products.1 Our recent addition, the Cefiderocol 30µg disc can be used to determine susceptibility to Cefiderocol against bacteria for complicated urinary tract infections (cUTIs), hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia and ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia.

Aligned with standards

The drug content of our discs is assayed by the methods established by the FDA,1 and is the concentration recommended for AST by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI).2  Labs can confidently use them to standardize testing by the Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method adopted as the consensus standard by CLSI.1 This procedure is also accepted by both the FDA3 and the WHO.4,5  

Consistency

BD BBL™ Sensi-Disc™ test discs are 6-mm each and contain accurately determined amounts of antibiotic or other chemotherapeutic agents.  Each disc is clearly marked on both sides with letters and numbers designating the agent and the drug content.1

Cost effective

BD BBL™ Sensi-Disc™ disc diffusion products offer an effective and more likely economical alternative for AST.  Using our wide range of discs, you can enable versatile testing throughout your facility from one trusted source.
