Categories

InTray® GC


InTray GC is intended for use in the qualitative detection of oral, rectal and genitourethral Neisseria gonorrhoeae colonization.  N. gonorrhoeae is a common sexually transmitted disease organism broadly disseminated throughout the world. InTray GC is a fully enclosed IVD which enables sample collection, transport, culture and identification in a single device — this simplifies diagnostic procedures, lab costs, and reduces exposure to both the user and the sampe.  The proprietary modified Thayer-Martin agar is selective for gonococcal bacteria, and results can be interpreted after 24-48 hours incubation.

InTray GC's dynamic built-in components and features are designed for user compatibility and ease of detection. 

The following are key highlights that come with this product:

  • Single exposure system
  • A “ready to start” 5% CO2 environment
  • Modified Thayer Martin medium, selective for N. gonorrhoeae
  • Direct observation of the culture with anti-fog viewing
  • Incubatory and transport capabilities
  • Extended 12 month shelf-life
