User testimonial

The QuickMIC® system, owing to the speed and short time to result has enabled us to completely change our workflows within the lab and change our way how we communicate results to the clinician. In the future, we hope that these changes will translate into lives being saved.

QuickMIC's gradient technology vs broth microdilution

Improve clinical decisions

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

  • Increased confidence in MICs from single testing
  • High sensitivity around clinical breakpoints (SIR)
QuickMIC AST results vs legacy methods

Speed up lab workflows

QuickMIC performs antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) directly from positive blood cultures and delivers results within 2-4 hours. Run QuickMIC alongside your preferred rapid ID method to report results to the clinical team even faster.

  • Same work shift actionable results
  • Minimum hands-on time
  • No plate culturing necessary
MIC values with high precision on gradient

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 the growth patterns of each microcolony along the linear antibiotic gradient to determine precise MIC values.

  • Bacterial growth can be visually monitored throughout the run for each antibiotic
  • Phenotypic detection of antibiotic resistance
