  • Alifax Clinical Susceptibility Test (CAST) performed with Alifax patented systems based on light scattering technology allows to test the sensitivity of pathogens to antibiotics directly from positive blood culture in only 3 hours.

    Starting from 10 ul of sample, it is possible to select a customizable panel of antibiotics chosen among a list of more than 30 molecules following both CLSI and EUCAST guidelines. The results are expressed in percentage of resistance to antibiotics and classified as Resistant, Intermediate or Sensitive.

    This unique Ultra rapid CAST dramatically reduces the analytical turnaround time thus effectively improving the Critically ill patient management, reducing antibiotic resistance and decreasing healthcare costs.
