The QuickMIC system

Modular system with up to twelve instruments per set up

One instrument analyses one sample per run

Cassettes with tailored panels for G- and G+ bacteria

Packed with smart features to make lab life better

Precise

MIC values with high resolution around clinical breakpoints make testing of challenging strains easier than ever.

Quick

Save precious time and deliver critical results to the clinical team during the same laboratory working shift.

Phenotypic

Susceptibility results based on real-time bacterial growth monitoring. Detects any functional resistance.

Improve clinical decisions

Our unique technology utilizes a continuous linear antibiotic gradient which allows for higher resolution, precision and accuracy than methods based on discrete concentrations.

  • Confident MIC reporting
  • High sensitivity around clinical breakpoints (SIR)
  • Better clinical outcomes and optimized dosing

Speed up lab workflow

QuickMIC performs AST directly from blood cultures and delivers results in 2-4 hours. Run QuickMIC in parallel with your rapid ID method of choice and report results to the clinical team even faster.

  • Same work shift actionable results
  • No plate culturing, no McFarland
  • Minimum hands-on time

Determine functional resistance in real time

Bacterial microcolonies exposed to a linear antibiotic gradient are followed in real-time by live imaging. The software analyses growth patterns along the linear antibiotic gradient to determine precise MIC values are determined.

  • True MIC results
  • Review results based on visual image inspection
  • Detects all types of antibiotic resistance
