MICRONAUT systems for thenidentification and susceptibility testing of bacteria and yeast
The testing principle of MICRONAUT identification systems (ID) is based on the phenotypical detection of the biochemical characteristics of microorganisms. The antimicrobial susceptibility test (AST) is based on phenotypical resistance detection by the growth of the microorganisms in the presence of the antibiotics / antifungal agents tested. The microdilution method used here is a standardised one regarded worldwide as the recognised reference system for determining the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC). The substrates or antibiotics are present vacuum-dried in the microtitration plates. Thanks to a special vacuum drying procedure, these MICRONAUT plates can be stored at room temperature (15-25 °C). Starting with a pure culture, the microorganisms are suspended in the corresponding MCN media and transferred to the MICRONAUT plates with an 8-channel pipette. Rehydration of the dried substances occurs by addition of the characterising bacteria or yeast suspension. After an incubation period of 18-24 hours the results can be photometrically measured or read visually.
As the central element in testing the MICRONAUT software combines device management, device communication and data analysis as well communication with the LIMS. The integrated expert system analyses the photometric test measurements and assumes the clinical validation. As an option, the software can be connected bidirectionally with the laboratory EDP.
sifin diagnostics gmbh has emerged from the former ‚Staatliches Institut für Immunpräparate und Nährmedien of the GDR. Thanks to investments of a German family of entrepreneurs in 1992, the diagnostics division (microbiology and blood group serology) could survive after the reunification. Since then, sifin diagnostics gmbh has recorded constant growth and is firmly embedded in the diagnostic industry. The company is still family owned. In the past few years we have strengthened our export activities and especially developed the markets in Europe and Asia. sifin diagnostics gmbh offers more than 600 standard products in the area of microbiology and immunology. Furthermore, contract manufacturing plays a major role for us: We produce culture media according to your formulation, optimize your cell line or provide monoclonal antibodies in your required format as ready-to-use, concentrate or bulk volumes. Thanks to the expertise and competence of our highly qualified staff, our companys reliability and flexibility to meet our customers demands, sifin diagnostics gmbh has an excellent reputation in the international diagnostic market.
