Smart association of 2 relevant media on one plate
Get smart! With chromogenic culture media bi-plates, you get the smart association of two relevant media – 1 reading, 2 answers and many advantages.
Get the information you need on 2 cultures in one reading
Reduce the number of plates to inoculate and read
Save space in the fridge and incubator
Cut waste in half with less packaging
It’s a 2-in-1 for the lab! To meet your daily culture and identification challenges, bioMérieux has created an exclusive range of bi-plates. On each bi-plate, a CHROMID® culture medium is paired with another medium – either a conventional culture medium or another chromogenic medium. The selected cultures provide complementary information to quickly and easily give you a more complete picture about the pathogens that may be involved in an infection. Simultaneous identification is faster identification, and timely answers can contribute to better healthcare at the patient, institution and public health levels. For example, the CHROMID® MRSA /CHROMID® S.aureus bi-plate provides direct identification of Staphylococcus aureus and also allows you to screen for methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), an organism involved in healthcare-associated infections (HAI). Rapidly knowing whether S. aureus is resistant or not enables better decisions to treat patients and manage HAI.
Easily read two complementary results at once on a single plate
Reduce number of plates to read and increase result traceability and sensitivity
Increase practicability and performance in the lab for a number of savings:
Space savings: bi-plates requires less storage in your fridge and incubator
