Fully automated

ASTar® enables full automation, analyzing 12 samples at a time with random-access loading, requiring less than two minutes hands-on time

True MIC results

In ~6 hours true MIC results are assured through controlled inoculum, and 6-14 consecutive doubling dilutions of each antimicrobial in panel

Extensive AST panel

The AST disc has over 330 wells available for antimicrobials, covering both fastidious and non-fastidious pathogens, allowing optimal targeted therapy

ASTar workflow

ASTar delivers AST results directly from positive blood cultures in about 6 h. This means up to 48 h earlier results depending on laboratory AST practice.

Traditional workflow

In the case of routine methods for AST, it usually takes 24 h to obtain growth of bacterial colonies and an additional 24 h to obtain phenotypic AST.
