In contrast to many other platform technologies used to identify bacteria and yeasts from patient samples, QuickFISH requires no complex or expensive instrumentation. The equipment you would need to purchase to use QuickFISH consists of a slide station, microscope filter, mixing template and pipette. These are available to purchase individually, or as part of a convenient starter kit. The QuickFISH Starter System requires a minimal initial capital investment and includes all materials and equipment, except QuickFISH BC kits and QuickFISH Fixation kits, necessary to perform the QuickFISH assay.
The QuickFISH Starter system (ST004) can be ordered as a complete system and contains the components listed below. These are also available to order individually if required. For a complete set of equipment and accessories required, please download the flyer using the green button below.
