QuickMIC® Ultra-rapid antibiotic susceptibility testing

QuickMIC Instrument

QuickMIC instruments analyse one blood culture sample per run and can be stacked to increase testing capacity while sparing valuable bench space. The instrument monitors bacterial growth in real time by live imaging for a maximum of 4 hours.

QuickMIC Cassettes

QuickMIC cassettes test one blood culture sample against a panel of multiple antibiotics. Each cassette contains twelve pre-filled antibiotics tailored for common sepsis-causing pathogenic bacteria.


For Gram-negative bacteria: E.coli, K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, A. baumannii, Enterobacter spp.


For Gram-positive bacteria: S. aureus, E. faecalis, E. faecium

QuickMIC Analyst

Our software displays and analyses bacterial images to calculate growth rates and determine true MIC values.

  • Results for each antibiotic are presented independently, as soon as they become available
  • Images are accessible to users for visual inspection, offering full control over the results
  • QuickMIC Analyst supports up to twelve instruments at once

QuickMIC Workflow

Simply load the cassette with growth medium and with your gel-embedded sample. Insert into an available instrument, click Start Run and you’re all set.
