Categories

InTray® GC

InTray GC is a fully enclosed prepared culture media device engineered to combine sample collection, culture and identification. Its task-oriented design and media are optimal for growth and recovery and include an activatable cartridge calculated to produce a 5% CO2 environment — which yields the best recovery of bacterial CFUs — for up to 72 hours when incubated; according to a study by the CDC.[1] This simplifies your diagnostic procedures as well as reduces both exposure of your sample and the clinician. With a proprietary modified Thayer-Martin agar that is selective for gonococcal bacteria, results can be interpreted after 24-48 hours incubation.
