VersaTREK Instrumentation

VersaTREK® Instrumentation
VersaTREK was named for its VERSATILITY. Four tests can be performed on one platform:

           Blood Culture
           Sterile Body Fluids
           Mycobacteria
           Mycobacteria Susceptibility Testing (FDA-cleared since 1999)

 

In Designing VersaTREK, We Kept the Best and Built the Rest

VersaTREK’s enhanced ergonomics and convenient bottle management provide optimal staff efficiency and convenience.

  • VersaTREK’s Any Bottle Anywhere Concept affords maximum instrument utilization... as simple as ABC!
  • VersaTREK’s on-board color LCD screen provides One Touch access to bottles, graphs, and patient information
  • VersaTREK’s intelligent design, utilizing new VorTrexing™ agitation, delivers the best media and instrument combination

            What is VorTrexing? Each REDOX 1® aerobic bottle contains a tiny stir bar allowing for continuous mixing of the sample and broth. When an aerobic

            bottle is placed into the VersaTREK drawer location, a rotating magnet under each bottle captures the stir bar and initiates continuous, uninterrupted

            mixing throughout the cycle. VorTrexing's unique agitation concept improves oxygenation of the broth for aerobic organisms when compared to   

           simply rocking or shaking.

  • VersaTREK’s modular design offers the highest capacity range in the industry with 96 to 528 testing locations, accommodating the laboratory’s changing capacity requirements
  • VersaTREK’s reliable instrument design allows for easy serviceability with access to serviceable components from the front of the unit and 24/7 on-line modem linkage support

Why Settle for Less?
When…
VersaTREK, with its modular design, unique Any

Bottle anywhere Concept, and new VorTrexing

agitation, provides the best solution for the

demanding challenges of today’s diagnostic

laboratory.



There’s nothing standard about VersaTREK...Designed

for better recovery, simple ease of use, improved

patient care, and greater value.
