Thermo Scientific Products Offer Fast, Reliable Mycobacteria Testing

From start to finish, Thermo Scientific products are your source for mycobacteria detection and Mtb susceptibility testing, with a full range of products for accurate, comprehensive, mycobacteria testing

The VersaTREK Microbial Detection System offers four FDA-cleared tests on one platform: mycobacteria detection, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) susceptibility testing, blood culture and sterile body fluid testing; providing efficiency, space savings and cost containment for the laboratory.

Just one bottle of VersaTREK Myco media is all that is needed for all mycobacteria specimens, including blood. The media utilizes a unique growth matrix, via cellulose sponges, to provide better detection of all Mycobacteria species. The cellulose sponges serve as a solid surface for the mycobacteria to grow on, and assist to increase the surface area for rapid time-to-detection of mycobacteria isolates.

The VersaTREK System also offers four FDA-cleared, primary antituberculosis drugs for Mtb susceptibility testing, including: Rifampin, Isoniazid, Ethambutol and PZA , as well as Streptomycin*.

Combine the VersaTREK System's comprehensive detection technology with high quality Remel media and diagnostic products for accurate, cost-effective mycobacteria testing. From reagents and stains to diagnostic tests, Remel mycobacteria products offer added flexibility, accuracy and quality to mycobacteria testing.
