No other company produces a similar system that meets reference lab standards with ease of use:
1. Get fast preliminary results with our MultiChrome and DermatoChrome Plates
2. Narrow your results and perform multiple tests at once with our Sensitivty Sensi-Rings
3. Confer results easily and clearly with our patient info forms
-- Do it all in our patented Mini-Incubator and SAVE TIME
Need a rush on a C&S test? Run both the MultiChrome and the Sensi-Ring concurrently and obtain both results in 24 hours! Inoculate a MultiChrome Bi-Plate to determine the type of bacteria, then inoculate a Mueller Hinton plate with your sample and lay in a Sensi-Ring for sensitivity. Your results for both will process at the same time. A reference lab would charge a premium for a rush sample!

Designed to ignite individual, distinct colors within the bacteria allowing in-house detection and identification of pathogens at a fraction of the cost of an outside lab! Each plate is individually packaged in sterile wrapper with 12 months expiration from date of purchase.
Each plate is labeled with two halves: GN (Gram Negative) and GP (Gram Positive) to provide a clear and simple testing procedure.
Why test only for UTI with recycled, old human technology when you can test for 9 areas of the body affected by pathogenic bacteria!?
It is best to dilute urine to a 1:1 ratio when performing bacteria tests.

- Urinary Tract Infections
- Conjunctival Infections
- Genital Infections
- Wound abscess/Skin
- Upper Respiratory Infections
- Skin Infections
When used with the "MultiChrome" chromogenic culture plates you have a powerful in-house diagnostic system that allows you not only to identify and test for sensitivity but also to determine sub strains of bacteria that may be difficult to treat. When combined with the MultiChrome culture plates our unique Kacey Micro Incubator, you can test and identify in just 48 hours.
In addition, Sensi-Ring Skin/Wound also detects MRSP, the latest methicillin resistant bacteria. Instructions for detection of MRSP in each package. SensiRings have 12 month expiration from date of purchase.
"MultiChrome", "SensiRing" and supplies are sold separately or as a complete Starter Kit (#20241) shown below. A great way to start an in-house Microbiology C&S program!

Kacey Mueller-Hinton plates are designed to provide a rich growth media for cultured bacteria. Individually packaged, these come with 7 months expiration from date of purchase.
Pictured above with our Sensi-Ring, these true 100mm dishes give each antibiotic disk ample room to either inhibit or allow bacteria to grow.
10 plates per pack
Turbidity Working Solution Tubes are the individual tubes used to prepare the sample for inoculation of the Mueller-Hinton Plates. By diluting the culture sample to the correct turbidity, overgrowth of bacteria during the sensitivity test is reduced allowing for better identification of the best antibiotic(s).
This kit contains 20 red top Working Solution Tubes (one per test), one white top reference standard to match turbidity and one 10ml bottle of sterile saline to dilute sample if necessary. 12 month expiration from date of purchase.
20 Tubes per Box
