PREVI® COLOR GRAM

Automated Gram Staining

"Gram-staining automation with the PREVI COLOR GRAM has improved the consistency and quality of slides, reducing potential variability among samples."
-Tim Drake, Microbiology Lab Manager, Grady Memorial Hospital

Traditional Gram staining is a cumbersome procedure that lacks reliability and reproducibility. PREVI COLOR GRAM is an automated Gram staining system that utilizes patented spray technology to provide rapid, standardized results for all types of specimen while adding efficiency to the microbiology process.

  • Standardized result that is not user-dependent
  • Finished product ready to read in as little as 5 minutes
  • Assurance of quality – no worry of cross contamination
  • Minimal hands-on time and clean up
  • Reduces reagent use and waste

 

PREVI COLOR GRAM Overview

Enhanced benefits of the new PREVI COLOR GRAM system include the following:

  • Touchscreen interface for easy-handling of the system
  • Level monitoring to avoid waste spillover and staining issues
  • Automated cleaning to help lessen troubleshooting issues
  • Program memory to customize protocols based on samples
  • Full traceability of reagents, users, maintenance, and slides
  • No change in reagents
