Photo: Positive visual detection of gonorrhea on the InTray GC selective media — within 24-48 hours
Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a common sexually transmitted disease organism broadly disseminated throughout the world. InTray GC is a fully enclosed microbiology cassette, which enables sample collection, transport, culture and identification in a single unit. The proprietary modified Thayer Martin agar is selective for gonococcal bacteria. Results can be interpreted after 24-72 hours incubation. InTray GC is a single exposure culture system with dynamic built-in components and features that are designed for user compatibility and ease of detection.

|Time to Result||
Incubate InTray GC flat to avoid moisture leaking into the CO2 pill chamber. Incubate the tray right side up for 24–72 hours at 35°C (95°F) under ambient atmosphere.
If InTray GC is being used for transport, to any laboratory located outside of the facility where collection was performed, then pre-incubation at 35°C for 24 hours is required.
After the pre-incubation step, InTray GC can be transported up to 72 hours at ambient temperature (18-25°C) to the testing laboratory for analysis.
