VITEK_ 2 technology represents a smarter way to automate ID/AST testing. It provides rapid,automatic, standardised validation of every test result with next generation expert software, the ADVANCED EXPERT SYSTEM

 

VITEK_ 2 is a unique system that uses a phenotypic expert system instead of commonly usedrules-based expert systems which are incapable of recognizing unusual results (i.e. mixedcultures) and new resistance phenotypes for which no rules exist. As a result, microbiologists

 

need to review every single result for rules-based systems, even the vast majority that do not trigger any rules
