About the VersaTREK and Sensititre product lines
Magellan's VersaTREK automated microbial-detection system offers four tests on one system, including detection of bacteria in blood culture and sterile body fluids as well as mycobacteria detection and M. tuberculosis susceptibility testing. The TREK-brand Sensititre product line for susceptibility testing enables labs to test – on a single cost-effective, LIS-compatible system – more FDA-cleared antimicrobial drugs than on any other automated platform against the widest range of non-fastidious and fastidious bacteria and yeasts. This saves microbiology labs from having to use multiple off-line test procedures to obtain accurate susceptibility data. Magellan often gets early access to the latest therapeutics because pharmaceutical companies use the Sensititre system during drug development. The platform is also the system-of-choice for global surveillance initiatives, including NARMS (National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System). We offer a full range of standard and custom Sensititre plates featuring 18- to 24-hour incubation, true MIC endpoints, and on-scale QC ranges, making susceptibility testing a viable procedure for laboratories of virtually any size. For custom dried or reference-method plates, laboratories can specify format and antimicrobic concentrations, selecting from more than 240 agents, including 80+ cleared compounds, to create a plate best-suited for the lab's particular need. Small minimum order quantities allow for better cost a
