BACTEC™ // I. PRINCIPLE. The detection of microorganisms in a patient’s blood has diagnostic and prognostic importance. Bactec Plus blood culture bottles were preincubated at 35°C or at room temperature before entry into the Bactec instrument to determine the influence of. The overall recovery of organisms and time to detection with the BACTEC and BACTEC systems were compared in a multicenter.

Both automated blood culture systems detected all episodes of simulated candidemia when specialized mycology bactef were used. Additionally, the routine use of mycology media adds a substantial expense; each mycology bottle is approximately three times more expensive than an aerobic or anaerobic blood culture bottle. Murray1 Linda S. Fresh, whole blood was bacfec from healthy volunteers after obtaining written informed consent.

A prospective observational study of candidemia: This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. The BacT system missed no episodes of candidemia, even with the above criteria.

The overall difference in time to detection between the two systems can be solely attributed to the delayed time to growth detection of C.

All bottles were subcultured and gactec heavy growth of pure yeast colonies and were therefore true positives. The BacT system missed no episodes of candidemia. Please select a Capability in order to start your service request.

The mean time to growth detection in the BacT system was With the increasing prevalence of candidemia among hospitalized patients, particularly secondary to NAC, further investigation is necessary to improve the recovery of all Candida spp. Offerings Capabilities Brands Bbactec solutions Catalogs. Detection of Candida spp. De La Maza, and E.

Until improvements in these systems are made, we may need to encourage clinical microbiology laboratories to bsctec use mycology media and terminally subculture negative bottles to ensure that episodes of candidemia are not missed. Our patented BD BACTEC resin media have been shown to effectively neutralize a wide variety of antibiotics, allowing growth of microorganisms that may not occur with conventional media.


A direct comparison of two automated blood culture systems was conducted to compare their ability to detect Candida growth.

Individual bactc culture bottles were removed from the automated blood culture systems when growth was detected and time to detection was recorded. If the incubation period were decreased to only 3 days, two more episodes of C.

Terminal subculture was performed on all 65 of the bottles that had no growth detected by the automated blood culture systems; all of these cultures demonstrated heavy growth of pure yeast colonies, representing 65 false-negatives. The line includes standard broth media, resin-containing Plus media and lytic media designed for optimal recovery of anaerobes.

Blood culture bottles in which no growth was detected were removed from the automated system after 12 days, seven days after the last bottle had growth detected in either automated blood culture system.
