Great instrument but mass production of the cards and support needs to improve.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Pathogen identification

"VITEK 2 is a great system, especially after using API strips. We are a small lab and it is rare that we head straight for PCR for our pathogen screening. The VITEK has been very dependable and is the backbone of our confirmation protocols. The only complaint I have is with the many recalls over the last two years with both the GN and GP (gram-negative & gram-positive) cards. The packaging has been either not sealed on the seam or punctured on the side and their official recalls have not caught all of them. These are not cheap and we have had to dance around these issues several times, often for proficiency testing and/or actual confirmation of positives/epidemiology testing. Its a good system but we need to be able to count on it in a pinch."
