Description & Specifications


For Use With (Application) Identification of clinically significant aerobic gram negative Enterobacteriaceae isolates and isolated Glucose nonfermenting gram negative Bacilli from Human origin
Format Solid
Includes Lids, bases, inoculum fluid and incubation trays sufficient for 20 determinations
Product Type Enteric/nonfermenter kit
Quantity 20 Pack
Storage Requirements 2-8°C

Intended for identification of clinically significant aerobic and anaeorobic gram-negative and gram-positive bacterial pathogens isolated from human specimens. During incubation, the stackable 10-device trays save space and prevent incubator mess. Following incubation, distinct chromogenic and fluorogenic reactions generate a profile number, which is keyed directly into the BBL Crystal MIND Software installed on a laboratory computer.

  • Onscreen display identifies the organism, reports on epidemiology, and conveys other pertinent information
  • Easy-to-use systems require no pipetting or reagent addition
  • Culture colonies are suspended in Crystal Broth; then inoculum suspension is poured directly into the Crystal device
  • Wells fill automatically by rocking base
  • Lid is snapped onto the device for safety and handling ease

  • Enteric/Non-Fermenter (E/NF) Kit performs overnight identification of clinically significant aerobic gram-negative Enterobacteriaceae isolates, as well as frequently isolated glucose nonfermenting gram-negative bacilli from human origin
  • Anaerobe ID (ANR) Kit is a four-hour test that identifies clinically significant anaerobes. Separate databases for Schaedler Blood Agar, CDC Anaerobe Blood Agars are included for improved specificity and increased flexibility
  • Neisseria/Haemophilus (N/H) ID Kit identifies Neisseria, Haemophilus, Moraxella, Gardnerella vaginalis and other fastidious bacteria in a four-hour test
  • Gram-Positive (GP) Kit identifies 121 gram-positive bacteria isolated from clinical specimens including both cocci and bacilli in an overnight test
  • Rapid Gram-Positive (RGP) Kit identifies gram-positive bacteria isolated from clinical specimens including both cocci and bacilli in a four-hour test
