A.R.I. WELL D-ONE
System for the presumptive identification and antimicrobial/antifungal susceptibility test of the most common bacterial pathogens in Acute Respiratory Infections
Acute respiratory infections (ARI) are one of the major health problems in the world and is one of the first causes of mortality and morbidity in paediatric patients.
In resource-poor regions immediate antimicrobial treatment is generally a priority over allocation of resources in microbial diagnosis. Rapid diagnosis available today may involve the use of expensive tests not available in all hospital centres, or inefficient for involved agents.
In light of this, we have a system that allows rapid growing of Streptococcus pneumonia, Streptococcus progenies (Group A), Streptococcus agalactiae (Group B), Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus aureus, Mycoplasma spp., Enterobacteriaceae, Pseudomonas spp., Candida spp., Candida albicans in just 18-24 hours, without additional equipment, and can be a useful tool in the hands of the microbiologist and clinician.
The tested sample is diluted in accordance with the procedure and inoculated directly into the wells of the plate. Incubation is performed for 18-24-48 hours and readings are taken visually without additional equipment.
The results are evidence by colour changes that occur in wells according to reactions due to chemical or chromogenic components contained in specific formulations for each microorganism
