From the quality and safety of the water supply and processed foods to reducing the spread of hospital-acquired infection, scientists use InTray and InTray Colorex devices to quickly, safely and economically screen and identify bacteria and other organisms. The unique package design and use of solid media/agar make BioMed products especially effective in the field or austere environments. They are easier to use than ampoules and petri dishes.
Quick results: Presumptive identification typically within 24 hours
Safe: Fully enclosed package with optically clear plastic viewing area
Economical: Individual expiration dates, long shelf life and less use of agar mean lower cost
BioMed membrane filtration testing devices incorporate accepted filtration procedures in accordance with US APHA and EPA regulations for analysis of potable water, as well as surface and waste water.
With seven tests to choose from, InTray enables low-cost, routine testing for a wide range of food-borne bacteria, from Listeria to Salmonella to E. coli O157.
Prescreen patients or test treatment areas and equipment for the antibiotic resistant bacteria most likely to cause hospital-acquired infection.
A stackable, fully enclosed microbiology cassette, InTray enables sample collection, transport and culture in a single device. The multifunctional devices reduce cost, increase efficiency and ensure accuracy.
- Observe InTray samples under a microscope through anti-fogging, optically clear plastic – no need to prepare a separate slide
- Controlled air exchange protects against exposure or contamination; ideal for field use and austere environments
- Shelf life of 6 months or more (from date of manufacture) with individual expiration date – unlike a petri dish sleeve
About InTray™ Colorex™
Distinctive color and morphology differences produced by Colorex technology make preliminary bacteria detection and identification easy. Colorex premium chromogenic microbiology media permits single-step isolation and identification of pathogenic microorganisms based simply on color change, usually within 24 hours. Colorex is available in InTray through a partnership with CHROMagar™ of France.
