A Legacy of Leadership

The BD BACTEC™ MGIT™ 960 System is the new generation in a proven line of mycobacteria testing instruments from BD the undisputed world leader in microbiology. The BACTEC MGIT 960 System builds on the legacy of simplicity, efficiency, performance and safety of the BACTEC™ 460TB and 9000MB instruments. The BD BACTEC 460TB System, the world's first automated system for mycobacteria testing, continues to serve as the benchmark of quality and reliability. The BACTEC MGIT 960 System combines these outstanding features with the technology used in the BD MGIT™ (Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube) System.

A New Level of Productivity

The BACTEC MGIT 960 System is designed to meet the needs of medium and high volume laboratories.

Unprecedented 960-tube, space-saving capacity lets you process approximately 8000 specimens per year from a system that makes optimal use of valuable laboratory space.

Continuous monitoring identifies positives as they occur. Faster results can improve patient care and lower healthcare costs by reducing hospital stays and optimizing equipment and staff utilization.

Safe, efficient, on-board incubation means no sharps, and no need to handle or transfer tubes once the system is loaded - thus reducing labor requirements and adding on an extra layer of operator safety. Simply scan and load the plastic sample tubes into the instrument, and walk away.

EpiCenter Data Management System (an optional component) performs statistical analyses and accommodates different customer preferences. It also provides simple specimen tracking along with a flexible and dynamic reporting system for more in-depth data management needs.

The BACTEC MGIT 960 System offers greater capacity, safe operation, fast results, higher throughput. The benefits of the new BACTEC™ MGIT™ 960 Mycobacteria Culture System are proof of the BD commitment to help today's laboratories achieve the most effective and cost-efficient level of patient management.

A Commitment to Simplicity and Performance

The BACTEC MGIT 960 System was designed with simplicity in mind, ensuring maximum productivity with minimal staffing and training.

Bar code scanning guides the simple 4-step operating procedure, eliminating potential errors:

The BACTEC MGIT 960 instrument automatically directs the placement of each tube within the instrument and indicates positives with both a visual and an audible signal as they occur.

The BACTEC MGIT 960 System is non-radiometric. It uses BD BBL™ MGIT™ media and patented sensors, making efficient use of advanced fluorometric technology which permits highly accurate detection of O2 consumption without sharps. Automated quality control is performed continuously to ensure precise and reliable operation. Results are provided as positive/negative and numerical Growth Units.
