Liofilchem® MIC Test Strips

Quantitative Assay for Determining the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (M.I.C.)

MIC Test Strip is a quantitative assay for determining the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (M.I.C.) of antimicrobial agents against microorganisms and for detecting the resistance mechanisms.

MIC Test Strip are porous strips with special features that are impregnated with a predefined concentration gradient of antibiotic, across 15 two-fold dilutions of a conventional M.I.C. method. On one side of the strip is indicated a M.I.C. scale in µg/mL and a code that identify the antimicrobial agent. For ESBL, MBL, GRD, AmpC and KPC detection, the double-sided gradient carries the appropriate diagnostic reagents.

Key Features and Benefits of MIC Test Strip:

  • Ready-to-use, pack sizes 10, 30 and 100 tests
  • Rapid and Efficient
