The BD Phoenix™ Automated Microbiology System is intended for the rapid identification (ID) and antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) of clinically significant bacteria. The BD Phoenix system provides rapid results for most aerobic and facultative anaerobic gram-positive bacteria as well as most aerobic and facultative anaerobic gram-negative bacteria of human origin. The BD Phoenix system is also intended for the rapid identification of yeast and yeast-like organisms.
Many of the tests used in the BD Phoenix ID panels are modifications of the classical methods. These include tests for fermentation, oxidation, degradation and hydrolysis of various substrates. In addition to these, the BD Phoenix System utilizes chromogenic and fluorogenic substrates as well as single carbon source substrates in the identification of organisms.
The broth dilution technique involves exposing bacteria to decreasing concentrations of antimicrobial agents in liquid media by serial two-fold dilution. The lowest concentration of an antimicrobial agent in which no visible growth occurs is defined as the minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC).
