VITEK 2	bacterial identification cards	antibiotic susceptibility cards
The wide variety of VITEK® 2 identification cards (ID) and antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) cards provides testing flexibility. This unique feature helps the laboratory control expenses and eliminates unnecessary testing.
The VITEK 2 System and Test Cards originated with the NASA space program to identify infections in astronauts. This breakthrough innovation led to today’s VITEK 2 technology.
The VITEK 2 card is the size and shape of a playing card and contains 64 microwells. Each well contains identification substrates or antimicrobials. VITEK 2 offers a comprehensive menu for the identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing of organisms.
The VITEK 2 Test Card is sealed, which minimizes aerosols, splattering, spills, and personal contamination. Disposable waste is reduced by more than 80% over microtiter methods.
