A reliable partner in quality care!
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:For diagnostic application

"The Film Array Biofire system is easy to use. Its application in the correct diagnosis has been overwhelmingly helpful to the providers. In addition tech support is always hassle-free with an ever ready replacement of the module each time problems are encountered. The only drawback that I can say is the pricing of the panels which are so expensive to procure."

Excellent instrument and panel - really improves patient care and outcomes!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Test positive patient blood cultures for pathogens via molecular methods

"It is extremely easy to use and the results are confirmed by culture and are reproducible We haven't seen discrepancies with the updated panel (BCID2). The BCID2 panel is wonderful with the expanded targets and the clarification of MRSA results (no longer possible to miscall it). It is a great value because we are able to give providers results within 1 or 2 hours following the reporting of the Gram stain result so they can start the patient on an appropriate antibiotic based off our antibiogram and with the knowledge of if there is a positive result for a resistance gene."
