Thermo Scientific Sensititre ARIS HiQ AST System

Friday, 04 October, 2019 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific


The Thermo Scientific Sensititre ARIS HiQ AST System is a benchtop automated reading and incubation system for antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST). Based on broth microdilution, which is said to be the industry’s gold standard, it provides microbiology laboratories with the MIC results clinicians need to confidently select an effective antibiotic for critically ill patients while safeguarding future patient care through antimicrobial stewardship.

The system is particularly useful for laboratories that routinely retest invalid AST results or require additional confirmatory testing prior to releasing results to clinicians. The immediacy of phenotypically driven MIC values is said to minimise retests, and can support a reduction in hidden costs associated with reporting delays.

Through collaboration with leading pharmaceutical companies, the system offers an up-to-date selection of antimicrobials, enabling early access to the latest therapies for multidrug-resistant infections. In addition, laboratories can create their own custom AST plates from a selection of over 300 antimicrobials in broad dilution ranges to consolidate and reduce offline testing.

The system has an expanded capacity of up to 100 Sensititre plates in a limited footprint that makes it possible to process more tests at one time while conserving valuable bench space. It also features an intuitive touchscreen user interface for convenient operation, 24/7 access to critical test information and batch load and unload capability for smooth testing workflow.
