Project Description

The BacT/ALERT® 3D instrument is a state-of-the-art, automated microbial detection system. The BacT/ALERT® system offers advantages in every dimension of microbial detection testing.

From its space-saving modular design to its easy touch-screen operation and flexible data management options, every size laboratory can perform microbial detection with the BacT/ALERT® 3D.


BacT/ALERT® 3D is used for detecting the presence or absence of microorganisms in:

  • Blood
  • Sterile body fluids


Because it’s so easy to use, BacT/ALERT® 3D saves time, facilitates cross-training and helps prevent errors. This system offers immediate bottle recognition, putting you in control of bottle loading and unloading and virtually eliminating bottle handling errors during microbial detection testing. The system’s automatic, built-in quality control, along with a low false positive rate and a rapid response time of this system, means you do more in less time with greater accuracy.

The latest generation of BacT/ALERT® Culture Media brings the most advanced, innovative microbial growth and detection technology to your laboratory. BacT/ALERT® media provide unsurpassed performance, in the detection of a wide variety of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi, and yeasts.

With flexible data management options of an automated microbial detection system, and available with many different system options, BacT/ALERT® 3D allows you to choose the best configuration for your laboratory.

Plastic Bottles Mean Safety

Safety is an important consideration for any microbial testing. bioMérieux is committed to providing the safest products possible to the microbiology laboratory. BacT/ALERT® bottles are made of unbreakable plastic to protect them from breakage. They are also lightweight to reduce the cost of disposal and shipping.
