Tedizolid is the seventh in a long series of MIC Test Strip items to be approved by the FDA, following recent approval of the Vancomycin, Dalbavancin, Ceftolozane-tazobactam, Meropenem, Ceftazidime and Telavancin strips. In the meantime, the rest of the MIC Test Strip range is available in the United States as research use only devices, while the entire MIC Test Strip product catalog is CE marked and fully available as IVD for clinical diagnostics purposes in Europe and approved in Canada by Health Canada. MIC Test Strip is also registered at the competent Authority in many countries outside Europe as a clinical diagnostic device.
The current MIC Test Strip range comprises antibiotics, antifungals, antimycobacterials, and combined strips for detection of resistance mechanisms (ESBL, MBL, KPC, AmpC and GRD) for over 150 items, each available in three pack formats (10, 30 and 100), for the widest gradient strip range in the international market.
