Accelerate Pheno® system

It’s okay to speed.
You’re providing
MIC results.

Antibiotic selection, dosage, infusion strategy –
A lot rides on the one result that drives optimal therapy decisions for patients with serious infections. The sooner antimicrobial susceptibility testing results with minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) get to providers, the more they can do to improve outcomes. So go ahead, break limits.

Report MIC results with interpretation faster with
the FDA-cleared Accelerate Pheno® system.

Automated Sample Preparation

Sample cleanup, dilution, cell capture and positioning. All hands-free.

Sample cleanup

Designed to accelerate your susceptibility testing, the system automatically cleans each sample using gel electrofiltration. Combined with additional system capability for polymicrobial infections, this process cuts hours of wait for you by reducing the need to grow cultures overnight before testing.

Diluting dynamically, automatically

A technician's time is precious and for susceptibility testing, so is an accurate inoculum. Solving this time and accuracy problem, the Accelerate Pheno system determines sample concentration and dilutes dynamically right on the cassette.

No McFarland standards needed.

Cell capture and positioning

Living cells move around making precise visual measurements difficult. To solve this, the system captures microbial cells onto the cassette surface, positioning them for analysis.

Detect, Identify, Quantify

One system for your identification and susceptibility results. Fast and fully automated fluorescence in-situ hybridization drives pathogen detection, species identification, and quantitation.

Which antibiotic.
How much. How often.

Move your patients from empiric to optimal therapy faster using MIC results from the Accelerate Pheno system.

Powered by Morphokinetic Cellular Analysis (MCA), the system is the first to track phenotypic features including the size, shape, and division rate of individual live cells growing into micro-colonies while being challenged by antibiotics.

Diagnostics Supporting Stewardship

Your antimicrobial stewardship team uses many diagnostic inputs to make therapy decisions. The definitive diagnostic result they use is the minimum inhibitory concentration, or MIC, which provides the exact information to determine which antibiotic is the most targeted and effective in each patient’s situation.

With the Accelerate Pheno system, MIC results are available about 40 hours faster than current methods, expanding the value of antimicrobial stewardship.
