Sensititre® HPB Suceptibility Plates

The Science Behind Sensititre HPB Susceptibility Plates
The only microdilution system that offers susceptibility testing for either Haemophilus influenzae or Streptococcus pneumoniae on the same plate, the HPB plate provides clinicians with a wide selection of antimicrobics to assist in determining the most effective therapy. Full-range antimicrobic dilutions allow for the reporting of the MIC and CLSI (formerly NCCLS) interpretive category for quality susceptibility information and better patient care.

Each individually packaged, 96-well HPB microtitre plate is precision dosed and vacuum dried to provide better antimicrobic stability than frozen systems. The possible loss of antimicrobic potency due to thawing is eliminated and, because the HPB plate is dosed with the antimicrobic only, each laboratory has the flexibility to choose the appropriate broth for testing. The HPB Susceptibility Plate can be read manually or semi-automatically using the Sensititre SensiTouch®.
