Blood culture media
Decrease time to detection during the analytical phase with a full spectrum of blood culture media solutions.
The combination of the BD BACTEC Plus aerobic and Lytic anaerobic media allows for improved time to detect and recovery of both aerobic and anaerobic organisms.1
The BD BACTEC bottle portfolio provides a full line of blood culture media developed specifically for the detection of aerobes, anaerobes, yeast, fungi and mycobacteria to help improve time to detect and organism recovery2 from both adult and pediatric patients.
Globally, over a third of patients hospitalized with sepsis may die prior to hospital discharge. Best practice recommends collecting at least two sets of blood cultures prior to antimicrobial therapy to help improve organism recovery.3
BD BACTEC™ Lytic Anaerobic medium
BD BACTEC™ Lytic Anaerobic medium lyses blood cells, releasing intracellular organisms.
BD BACTEC™ Plus Aerobic medium
BD BACTEC™ Plus Aerobic medium effectively neutralizes a wide range of antimicrobials.
BD BACTEC™ Plus Anaerobic medium
BD BACTEC™ Plus Anaerobic medium supports the growth of anaerobic organisms and contains resins to neutralize antibiotics.
BD BACTEC™ Standard Aerobic medium
BD BACTEC™ Standard Aerobic medium is an enriched soybean-casein digest broth for recovery of aerobic organisms.
BD BACTEC™ Standard Anaerobic medium
BD BACTEC™ Standard Anaerobic medium is designed to recover anaerobic microorganisms from blood.
BD Synapsys™ microbiology informatics solution
BD Synapsys™ informatics assists with trending and tracking blood culture collection best practices for continued laboratory improvement.
BD BACTEC™ FX blood culture system
The BD BACTEC™ FX blood culture system builds on the proven history of previous BD BACTEC™ instrumentation, with advanced fluorescence detection technology, exceptional media performance and instrument reliability—adding vial-activated workflow, advanced ergonomics, blood culture observation and customer-focused data management. The easy-to-use workflow comes in a compact, modular design, which can be adapted to multiple space- and time-saving configurations for your laboratory staff.
The system enables a unique vial-activated workflow that helps reduce hands-on time, identifies anonymous vials and utilizes an interface with a conveniently located LCD touch screen, status indicators and a barcode scanner at each module.
The system offers efficient workflow in a compact, modular format.
Intelligent data management
It provides data management with enhanced blood culture observation—in and out of the laboratory, helping reduce workflow interruptions and communicate preliminary or final results to caregivers.
By helping detect positive blood cultures early, the system may also help you more quickly implement therapy to positively affect patient outcomes and reduce lengths of stay.
