MTS™ (MIC Test Strip)
A quantitative assay for determining the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (M.I.C.) of antimicrobial agents against microorganisms and for detecting the resistance mechanisms. MTS™ are porous strips with special features (International Patent) that are impregnated with a predefined concentration gradient of antibiotic, across 15 two-fold dilutions of a conventional M.I.C. method.
MTS™ Synergy Application System
MTS™-SAS combines the reliability of MIC Test Strip with patented tools to facilitate and standardize a critical assay such as the in-vitro combination of antibiotics. Antimicrobial resistance is a major challenge for clinicians and clinical microbiologists, the use of synergy testing is nowadays increasingly requested. MTS-SAS procedure is significantly faster than any other methods in antibiotic synergy tests (i.e. timekill, checkerboard), does not require any additional training to those who are skilled in the usage of MIC Test Strip, reduces or eliminates the risks of procedure errors when compared to laborious and complicated traditional methods.
Antibiotics, antifungals and veterinary agents for over 200 items, each available in two pack formats (50 and 250 discs). Also available as kits of combined discs for detecting resistance mechanisms.
The new Agar Dilution panel by Liofilchem is the first and only (international patent pending) ready-to-use commercially available kit for performing the agar dilution AST, in compliance with the CLSI and EUCAST standards, with 4 months shelf life at present. * custom versions available
