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.

ETEST complements the VITEK® 2 automated system platform by offering a flexible and precise MIC solution to test additional antibiotics. Learn more about ETEST

Enhance your Antimicrobial Stewardship Program

ETEST Plazomicin is a quantitative technique for determining the susceptibility of plazomicin against Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, and Enterobacter cloacae. ETEST Plazomicin is part of an integrated ID/AST offer by bioMérieux to help complete your AST pathway and support your antimicrobial stewardship initiatives.

ETEST Helps Fight Emerging Resistance

The emergence of resistant bacteria is a natural phenomenon that is exacerbated and accelerated by the inappropriate use of antibiotics. ETEST Plazomicin is a diagnostic solution used to assess susceptibility to plazomicin, brand name ZEMDRI®, an aminoglycoside developed to treat complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI), including pyelonephritis in adults.1 Ensuring patients get the right antimicrobial, the right dose, at the right time is the heart of antimicrobial stewardship.

ETEST - MIC Testing

ETEST complements the VITEK 2 system by offering a flexible and precise MIC solution to test additional antibiotics. The ETEST range offers more than 90 antimicrobial agents including antifungals as well as antimicrobial resistance detection references.

ETEST Plazomicin 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.
