MICRONAUT Identification (ID)

More than 400 different bacteria and yeasts can be differentiated with the MICRONAUT identification systems.

The test principle of the MICRONAUT identification systems is based on phenotypic detection of the biochemical properties of micro-organisms. In all identification systems the various substrates are placed in dehydrated form into the wells of the microtitration plates and are dissolved by adding bacterial suspensions.

After 5 to 24 hours of incubation depending on the test system the ID plate is measured in the photometer and the test is evaluated by the MICRONAUT software. A visual check of the test results can be also performed. The special vacuum drying process allows storage at 15 to 25°C. The MICRONAUT test plates can be stored for 24 months after production.
