Gram ID

The definitive rapid alternative to the Gram Stain assay
The Endosafe®-PTS™ Gram ID is an automated handheld test system that utilises disposable cartridges pre-filled with the necessary reagents for accurate and convenient Gram testing. The Gram ID uses a portable spectrophotometer that provides quantitative test results that can then be downloaded to a central PC for tracking and trending.

The data is interpreted by the software to indicate whether a sample from an isolated colony contains Gram-negative or Gram-positive bacteria or to confirm a yeast or mould thereby eliminating technician variability. This definitive, stain-free assay is a single-step test that provides quantitative results in about 3 minutes, allowing you to move on to the next step in your ID faster and eliminate costly disposal of biomedical waste.
