VITEK® 2

The VITEK® 2 system has everything healthcare laboratories need for fast, accurate microbial identification, and antibiotic susceptibility testing.   
   
The innovative VITEK® 2 microbial identification system includes an expanded identification database, the most automated platform available, rapid results, improved confidence, with minimal training time.   
   
The VITEK® 2 system next-generation platform provides greater automation while increasing safety and eliminating repetitive manual operations. The rapid response time means results can be provided more quickly than with manual microbial identification techniques. 
 
 
VITEK® 2: HEALTHCARE USES 
  • Microbial Identification - bacteria and yeast identification (ID) 
  • Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing (AST) and resistance mechanism detection 
  • Epidemiologic trending and reporting 
     
    For Clinical Laboratory Professionals:
