onSite® Urine Culture Device combines the sensitivity
and specificity of the traditional urine culture method
with the convenience and efficiency of a unique design
for detecting, enumerating, and identifying specific
bacteria in urine.

 
 

The Science Behind onSite®
The onSite Urine Culture Device is a transparent, hinged casing containing face-to-face plates of agar with a plastic sampler with two curved tips located between the plates. The agar structure is elongated to ensure longitudinal streaking of urine by the sampler. Each onSite device contains one plate of MacConkey agar, a selective medium that provides excellent differentiation between coliforms and non-lactose fermenters with inhibition of gram positive cocci, and one plate of CLED Agar — A differential medium that supports the growth of both gram positive and gram negative bacteria, CLED agar also supports the growth of Pseudomonas and Proteus, which do not ferment lactose.


Enhanced Laboratory Efficiency
onSite combines the sensitivity and specificity of the traditional urine culture method with the convenience and efficiency of a unique design for detecting, enumerating, and identifying specific bacteria in urine.
