Commercial Sets offered by MicroBioLogics® contain the manufacturer recommended quality control strains for bacterial identification systems (e.g., Vitek®) and bacterial detection products (e.g., Colilert®). Miscellaneous Sets offered by MicroBioLogics® include the quality control strains required by CLSI for sensitivity testing, and appropriate microorganism groupings for a wide selection of additional quality control tests. Ordering microorganisms in sets simplifies the ordering process and offers the best value with a savings of 5% or more over ordering individually.

For more information click on the information button for each individual strain.
Note: Add the packaging option to the Catalog Number when placing an order: Cat # + V (for LYFO DISK®); Cat # + S (for KWIK-STIK™ 6 Pack); or Cat # + P (for KWIK-STIK™ 2 Pack). Examples are 5041V, 5041S or 5041P.
