InTray GC Takes the Lead in Gonorrhea Infection Detection

CARLSBAD, Calif.—InTray GC, an innovative culture diagnostic for the detection of gonorrhea with a Class II designation from the U.S. FDA, has filled a critical public health void following the discontinuation of the Remel JEMBEC product by the manufacturer.

InTray GC plays a crucial role in the timely and precise identification of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, the bacteria behind the widespread sexually transmitted infection, gonorrhea. The device is engineered to handle the collection, transport, and growth of Neisseria gonorrhoeae, providing a trustworthy resource for healthcare providers in the ongoing fight against STIs.

The product is developed and sold by Biomed Diagnostics, a pioneer in microbiological testing that develops user-friendly tools to detect infectious microorganisms.

InTray GC's features include:

  • Simple Operation: Developed to streamline lab procedures, the InTray GC supports direct specimen input, minimizing contamination risks and procedural errors stemming from manual media setup. 
  • No Expensive Incubator Required: The InTray’s “ready to start” activatable 5% CO2 environment eliminates the need for a CO2 incubator. 
  • Easy Results: After the 24-48-hour incubation period, the bacterial growth can be observed through the InTray window without opening the device. Observation of culture growth can be by eye, hand lens, or microscope.
  • Budget-Friendly and Environmentally Conscious: Adhering to principles of sustainable design, InTray GC is as budget-friendly as it is eco-friendly. The all-in-one system eliminates the need for multiple components, cutting down the waste produced by similar products.

InTray GC is readily available for order and discounts are available for bulk purchases. Request a sample for evaluation or learn more here.
