Improving Therapeutic Decisions
ETEST is a well-established method for Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) determinations in microbiology laboratories around the world. ETEST consists of a predefined gradient of antibiotic concentrations immobilized on a plastic strip and is used to determine the MIC of antibiotics and antifungal agents. Learn more about ETEST.

Enhance your Antimicrobial Stewardship Program
ETEST® Telavancin is a quantitative technique for determining the susceptibility of Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin resistant S. aureus). Telavancin, a lipo-glycopeptide antibiotic, is a semisynthetic derivative of vancomycin with a similar mechanism of action.1 VIBATIV®, the trade name for telavancin, provides an additional treatment option for S. aureus (including methicillin resistant S. aureus). Clinicians need clear and reliable MIC results in order to make antibiotic therapy decisions. ETEST Telavancin supports clinicians and antimicrobial stewardship programs by providing a flexible and precise MIC solution to guide and manage therapy.
ETEST Telavancin (0.002-32 ug/mL)
ETEST Telavancin is FDA 510(k) cleared and is used to assess susceptibility to telavancin, an antimicrobial agent developed for the treatment of the following infections in adults:
- Nosocomial pneumonia including ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) caused by S. aureus.
- Complicated skin and skin structure infections.

ETEST - Flexible and Precise MIC Testing
ETEST complements the VITEK® 2 system by offering a flexible and precise MIC platform to test additional antibiotics. The ETEST range offers more than 90 antimicrobial agents including antifungals as well as antimicrobial resistant detection references.
ETEST Telavancin gradient strip is preformed and stable. It is a thin, inert and non-porous plastic strip comprised of a predefined antibiotic gradient used to determine the MIC, in μg/mL, against microorganisms tested on agar media after overnight incubation. In 16-20 hours of incubation, you can determine MIC values for the organism. This strip supplements our ETEST product range.
