ETEST® is a well-established method for Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) determinations in microbiology laboratories around the world.

It consists of a predefined gradient of antibiotic concentrations immobilized on a plastic strip and is used to determine the MIC of antibiotics and antifungal agents and to detect resistance mechanisms.

ETEST® is the perfect complement of the VITEK® 2 automated system platform for a complete AST solution. Used together, VITEK® 2 and ETEST® meet susceptibility testing requirements for your clinical microbiology laboratory. The synergy between VITEK® 2 and ETEST® helps address challenging situations and provides quantitative MICs for patients.

We are pleased to announce new additions to our extensive range of ETEST® products. These products are either developments of new antibiotics or redevelopments of the existing range to better meet your needs.

All new antibiotics need to be prescribed in an appropriate manner to ensure their efficacy is sustained over time. This helps support appropriate antimicrobial therapy decisions for better patient outcomes and contributes to antimicrobial stewardship. ETEST® plays this role for supporting new antibiotic prescription by indicating an organism’s Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) level for antimicrobial susceptibility.

We have been progressively switching our Blister and Foam packaging to the Single Pack 30 strips and the new Multi Pack 100 strips for the ETEST® range. This new style of packaging is adapted to your needs and brings many advantages such as ease of use, storage simplification, security and cost savings. You can check out the list of molecules recently launched with Single Pack or Multi Pack below:



We are also pleased to announce the implementation of the Single Instruction For Use (Single IFU) which will help to simplify and homogenise ETEST® documents for your convenience. This detailed and illustrated document covers all the technical aspects formerly available in several documents. Check out the latest version of the IFU using the Resource Centre.
