The BD MicroProbe Processor is a compact, robotic unit that
automatically controls the reagent and sample mixing, and
incubation timing of the Affirm Microbial Identification Tests.
The Affirm tests use specialized beads coated with
microbe-specific DNA probes to qualitatively identify the
presence of selected target microorganisms in clinical
Each test consists of a panel of organism-specific probe
beads, plus a specificity control (negative) bead and a
procedural control (positive) bead. The beads are all located
on a single test card called a Probe Analysis Card (PAC). The
identification reaction takes place on the beads as the
processor moves the PACs through a series of incubations
with sample and reagent, resulting in a blue-colored bead if
the test is positive.
Dear Dr Dang,
Safely your facility is the best I have ever been to. Can't believe anything can be better than your lab. Thank you for all you do for your patients. It is far beyond what is expected.
You are a perfectionist.
