BACT/ALERT® 3D Microbial Detection Systems

Get innovation in septicemia diagnosis for any size laboratory with the BACT/ALERT® 3D automated microbial detection systems

  • No compromise: performance, flexibility, workflow & safety
  • Intuitive, easy-to-use system requires little training
  • Recovery of a wide range of organisms
  • Unique shatter-resistant plastic bottles maximize safety


The BACT/ALERT® 3D family of products brings you sophisticated automated microbial detection systems with advantages in every dimension of blood culture testing from safety and design to recovery and accuracy. They provide optimal environments for the recovery of a wide range of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and mycobacteria. All this in a single innovative platform that’s the most compact, modular and flexible system available.

Flexible & scalable to suit any lab

The BACT/ALERT® system is a flexible and scalable family of three instruments with various capacities – so they offer advantages to suit different sized labs with different needs.

  • Add additional testing capacity as you need it, thanks to expandable design
  • Small footprint – stackable units fit any laboratory layout
  • Choose number of incubator modules for your lab’s annual bottle testing volume
  • Configure each incubator module to perform blood culture or body fluid, platelet sterility testing, and/or mycobacteria testing, by drawer

BACT/ALERT® 3D 240: Capacity and capability combined

  • Four incubator drawers of 60 cells deliver 240 cell capacity
  • Control module handles up to 6 incubator modules for capacity up to 1440 cells
  • Horizontal and vertical modularity minimize physical strain
  • Sample-loading flexibility with left- or right-handed sample loading drawers
  • Drawers configured for blood or mycobacterium cultures


BACT/ALERT® 3D 120 Combo: Surprisingly compact, remarkably complete


  • Combines control and incubator modules into a single instrument
  • 120 cell capacity in two drawers
  • Connect to up to 3 incubator modules to one Combo instrument
  • Sample-loading flexibility with left- or right-handed sample loading drawers
  • Drawers configured for blood or mycobacterium cultures


BACT/ALERT® 3D 60: Simply smaller

  • 60 cell capacity (3,600 blood/body fluids annually)
  • Optimized space saving & cost-effective design – so any laboratory can benefit from BACT/ALERT® 3D technology
  • Configurable for blood or mycobacterium cultures


Workflow that’s as easy as 1-2-3

Sometimes, the simplest things make the biggest difference. As labs face the challenges of higher volumes, demand for reduced turnaround and the need to use staff resources effectively, smart workflow is critical. The efficient workflow you get with BACT/ALERT® 3D instrument helps you meet those challenges, reduce risk of error and gain peace-of-mind through easy and intuitive bottle handling. In fact, the bottle-handling process is as easy as 1-2-3 with the three-step bottle loading process of Touch, Scan, Load:

  • Exclusive touch-screen operation enables text-free control, facilitates bottle handling and provides instant visual and audio alerts for positive bottles
  • Bar-code scanner reads bottle ID and LIS accession numbers for faster, easier bottle entry
  • Patented cell flags in each cell instantly recognize bottle movements and let you load bottles anywhere in the system
  • Easy procedure minimizes training requirements and enhances productivity

Safe and reliable media

The BACT/ALERT® system uses media cleared for use with blood, sterile body fluids and platelets, as well as specialized media for detection of mycobacteria. Unique colorimetric technology outshines other technology by reducing false negatives due to delayed bottle entry. Triple-layer bottle design ensures appropriate environment for reliable recovery of microorganisms.

  • Safety and efficiency are ensured with plastic blood culture media, pioneered by bioMérieux
  • Shatter-resistant bottles reduce biohazard exposure risk
  • Light-weight bottles offer cost-effective shipping and disposal – without compromising results
