ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE
FOCUS ON
NEW INTUITIVE SOFTWARE
IN ROUTINE IDENTIFICATIONS
"...appropriate biochemical and phenotypic methods can be used for the
routine identification of isolates." FDA Guidance for Industry - Sterile drug
products produced by aseptic processing - Current Good Manufacturing
Practice, September 2004.
• User interface screen for immediate notification
of system status to increase productivity.
• Unique vacuum filler provides both safety
and the highest level of automation.
bioMérieux’s Total Solution
IDENTIFICATION & TYPING
from Routine to Investigation
• New reader eliminates many manual steps:
- An automated internal barcode scanner
provides a validation of what the user
has entered into the software
- An automated loading mechanism eliminates
manual steps by the user increasing efficiency
- Reads every 15 minutes for greater speed
in identification
- Automatically prints the results when available,
if configured to do so, giving you flexibility.
• Intuitive icons require less technician training
resulting in higher productivity.
• Navigation tree shows actual status of all cards
increasing speed of results and resolution
of issues by staff.
Optional software includes
the VITEK®2 Compact Validation Package
to get your laboratory up and running
in the shortest time possible.
• 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
• System uses Windows XP and security.
• Designed for simple temperature verification.
• SRF, Supplemental React File, a customizable
feature to track facility-specific organisms.
• Completed tests are automatically ejected into an
ergonomic trash container
• These organisms may be automatically transferred
to this area of the software and saved.
This eliminates typographical errors and increases
confidence and quality of results.
NETWORKING
Anywhere with any Hardware
• Complete networking guide
for remote print, view, back-up,
restore and archiving.
