Flexicult® ID is a chromogenic agarplate used for identification and quantification of pathogenic bacteria for Urinary tract Infections.
Flexicult® ID is an agarplate used for cultured urinalysis. it provides the possibility to both identify the bacteria at the same time as quantification.
depending on the colour, size and amount of colonies the bacteria species can be deturmined.
In example the E.coli will grow as large red colonies where Enterobactor species will grow as big dark blue/violet colonies.
Urinary testing for right identification and quantification
Colour indication for bacterial identification
Quantitative visualisation based on growth pattern
Easy workflow as identification and quantification is happening at the same time
How to use
- Patient with symptoms of urinary tract Infections provides a urine sample
- Mark the sample with patient ID and date for collection
- The sample is spread with a 10 uL inoculum
- Add the lid and place the plate bottom up in the incubater at 35 oC over night
- Read the plate after 16-24 hours incubation
Interpretation of colony forming units pr mL urine
The amount of colony forming units/ mL is interpreted according to the picture guidelines in the IFU (Instruction for Use can be found under downloads in the bottom of this page). if more than one type of bacteria grows on the place, please interpret all of them separately.

Simpler for the better
If you work within the field of microbiology, you might be familiar with Occam’s Razor. At SSI Diagnostica, we champion a slightly adapted version of this principle:
The simplest solution is usually the best one.
