Discs, Strips and Cards

Disks and strips are used in the identification and confirmation of microorganisms. They are easy to use and based on rapid screening methods like the detection of enzymes with chromogenic substrates, indicators, or on complex building reactions. Also, the sensitivity to certain inhibitory substances can be used to identify organisms. The sterility indicator strips are used to monitor sterilization and are important for controlling the sterilization process.
