“We can choose, even for the most critical patients, the best for them based on the MICs and the antibiogram. This is really a bonus with the MYLA®. Rather than do it manually, it is very efficient to just print a report and show them, for example, if we have a high resistance to a certain antibiotic, so they can [adapt therapy].”

“We get isolates from different parts of the world, different areas, different cities. In order for us to ensure the antibiotic surveillance and stewardship for our clients, we are able to extract this data and send it to them in a format that they understand. This is one of the most important things that VITEK® solutions have that other instrumentation doesn’t.”

BACT/ALERT® VIRTUO® and blood culture
“In some cases, [the BACT/ALERT® VIRTUO®] has given positive results in five to six hours after loading the bottles. It’s really very accurate and the diagnosis is up to the mark. The main thing is that it is very fast, so we have no long delay in the result if there is anything in the blood culture.”

“In the year that I’ve been using it, the BACT/ALERT® VIRTUO has really facilitated the overall management whether automation for the pre-analytical, analytical or post-analytical phases.”

“The impact of the VIRTUO® on critical analyses will enable us to obtain positive results more quickly, and therefore to treat patients more quickly. The more rapid it is, the sooner antibiotic therapy can be implemented and therefore the patient is better cared for.”

“The VIRTUO® system also provides a major improvement to our quality system, enabling us to meet the COFRAC accreditation appropriately and effectively, including support from [bioMérieux] in this.”
