Abstract


Vitek-2 is automatic microbiologic equipment which used to identify antimicrobial sensitivity by micro organism test have been
launched in Indonesia. In some private laboratory and hospital this equipment has been used already. The purpose of this study is to
know how to operate this equipment to ID and AST as well as to compare with the conventional methods. The material used to test with
this equipment consist of pure colony culture which derived by suspension of one inoculation to ID or AST card. The reagent consists
only of saline suspension. After the suspension installed to VITEK2, the result was verified in the printout about 1.5 hours. The colour of
ID and AST is difference and couldn’t change with each other. The results are appear more rapid than the others conventional methods.
VITEK-2 can be used as a means to diagnose faster than the conventional methods., so that the physician could prescribe earlier as soon
as possible to patients and reduced the hospital budgets as well.
