Susceptibility Testing Made Simple
Automated Validation of Every Result
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™ 2,3,9,10.
VITEK 2 is a unique system that uses a phenotypic expert system instead of commonly used rules-based expert systems which are incapable of recognizing unusual results (i.e. mixed cultures) 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.
is designed to make your ID/AST workflow as rapid and reliable as possible,
while still providing maximum exibility and full traceability. Lab personnel
can focus on using their expertise where it’s most needed.
