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.
One of the finest path lab in India.
