What is BD bactec plus aerobic F culture vials?

BD BACTECT Plus Aerobic/F medium is used in a qualitative procedure for the aerobic culture and recovery of microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) from blood. The principal use of this medium is with the BD BACTEC fluorescent series instruments.

What is bactec media?

BD BACTEC™ Blood Culture Media The BD BACTEC bottle portfolio provides a full line of blood culture media developed specifically for the detection of aerobes, anaerobes, yeast, fungi and mycobacteria to help improve time to detect and organism recovery2 from both adult and pediatric patients.

What is BD bactec lytic anaerobic?

BD BACTEC™ Lytic Anaerobic medium is an anaerobic medium designed to increase the detection and recovery of anaerobes. It contains a detergent to lyse both red and white blood cells present in the sample, releasing any intracellular organisms.

What does bactec test for?

Conclusions: The BACTEC medium is a good for the diagnosis of smear negative tuberculosis. It demonstrated faster and increased recovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis than conventional culture methods. The combined use of BACTEC and LJ gives better positive culture yield.

What are culture vials used for?

A blood culture is a laboratory test in which blood, taken from the patient, is inoculated into bottles containing culture media to determine whether infection-causing microorganisms (bacteria or fungi) are present in the patient’s bloodstream.

How does bactec FX work?

The BD BACTEC™ Automated Blood Culture System utilizes fluorescent technology in detecting the growth of or- ganisms in the blood culture bottles. When microorganisms are present in the cultured vials, they metabolize nutrients in the culture medium, releasing carbon dioxide into the medi- um.

What is BD lytic 10 anaerobic F culture vials?

INTENDED USE BD BACTECT Lytic/10 Anaerobic/F Culture Vials (prereduced enriched Soybean-Casein Digest broth with CO2) are for anaerobic blood cultures. Principal use is with the BD BACTEC fluorescent series instruments for the qualitative culture and recovery of anaerobic microorganisms from blood.

How does the bactec work?

Microorganisms, if present in the blood samples, metabolize nutrients in the Bactec culture vial release CO2 into the medium or utilize the oxygen in the medium. The instrument monitors the fluorescence of the vial sensor which increases as CO2 is produced or oxygen is utilized.

How does the bactec FX work?

What is bactec method?

Use of the BACTEC method allows early confirmation in patients with clinically probable TBM. It can guide clinicians in the rational use of anti-tuberculosis treatment by confirming diagnosis and identifying drug- sensitivity.

Why do you need 2 sets of blood cultures?

Why are two specimens required from two separate sites? To mitigate this perceived inevitability, 2 cultures are drawn for each collection from two separate insertion sites. This helps to distinguish true bloodstream infection (in which both specimens will be positive with the same organism) vs.

What is the order of draw?

The “Order of Draw” is designed to eliminate the possibility of cross contamination that may result in erroneous results. It is based on CLSI Procedures for Collection of Diagnostic Blood Specimens by Venipuncture; Approved Standard Sixth Edition, October 2007.
