Many Gram-positive bacteria are involved in some of our most critical healthcare challenges related to increasing resistance to antibiotics and Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI). Preventing the spread of these organisms is therefore a key goal for better patient care and cost control in the healthcare setting. Safe, convenient VITEK® 2 ID cards are self-contained, disposable cards developed for use with the VITEK®2 family of instruments. The VITEK®2 GP ID card offers rapid and accurate identification of a broad range of clinically significant Gram-positive pathogens.
