VIENNA, Austria, BALTIMORE Maryland, and Seattle, Washington – 13 July 2021: At the 31st European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID, www.eccmid.org), Pataigin introduced the BACLIB Rapid Lipid Extraction Kit for microbial identification and colistin resistance detection.
The patented BACLIB Kit is unique in determining bacterial species ID and colistin resistance with a single assay. Superior to competing lipid microbiology kits, BACLIB requires less than a minute of hands-on time per sample, with no centrifugation or complex handling steps.
In contrast to competing kits that only identify a single species, the multiplex BACLIB Kit identifies and determines colistin resistance for all the ESKAPE pathogens. The BACLIB Kit includes access to custom software for ID/resistance determination. Time-to-result is only 30 minutes.
