InTray® TSA - Prepared Plated Culture Media

InTray TSA (Tryptic Soy Agar) is a non-selective medium used for isolation, cultivation and enumeration of non-fastidious and fastidious microorganisms. The device is designed to interface directly with standard methods for bacterial testing of water samples using the Membrane Filter (MF) Technique. TSA with 5% Sheep Blood is a preferred medium for isolation and enumeration of hemolytic bacteria.

TSA is the medium specified as Soybean-Casein-Digest Agar Medium by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for the total aerobic count portion of microbial limit testing procedures. The medium is also used for maintenance of stock cultures, plate counts and isolation of organisms from a variety of specimen types.


Product Principle
  • Combine collection, culture, result and microscopic observation in one IVD device.  
  • Highly selective prepared media in a device designed for in-vitro specimen transport and incubation.
  • Rapid presumptive-positive diagnosis without re-plating.  Intray can be placed directly on microscope stage
  • Fully enclosed cassette with Tyvek® air filtration prevents contamination and exposure, post-collection.   
Simple Convenience
  • The InTray is designed for specimen collection/ inoculation at point-of-care
  • Saves time, material cost and waste, reducing exposure to collected sample
  • Place directly on the microscope tray for observation through the cassette’s clear anti-fog window
  • Selectively produces distinctive colony growth with typical identifiable morphology

  • Can tolerate extended periods at controlled room temp (≤ 25˚C), with no loss in performance.

Features and Benefits

Shelf-life and durability

  • Designed for long shelf life, durability and stackable for incubation, or 12 month storage. 
  • No re-plate or wet mount 
  • Once InTray is inoculated, no other culture preparation is required... saving time and cost. 
  • Designed for specimen collection/inoculation at point-of-care, a fully enclosed system for transport, incubation, result and microscopic observation. 
  • The sealed prepared media device is selectively formulated for accurate detection and identification of pathogens and non-pathogens
  • Visual chromogenic differentiation and/or selective production of distinctive colony growth with typical identifiable morphology 

Key Features

  • Fully enclosed cassette with air filtration system
  • Nutritive culture colony growth medium, formulated for selectivity and specificity 
  • Anaerobic or aerobic system available 

You'll immediately experience a reduction in:

  • Time-to-result
  • Cost of laboratory materials 
  • Medical waste
  • Risk of exposure or contamination
