  • Uses



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.


Results are the most important aspect of any microbial detection system. Built on bioMérieux's patented colorimetric technology, the BACT/ALERT 3D demonstrates unsurpassed recovery of a wide range of organisms.

BACT/ALERT 3D System Options
We've designed a microbial detection system to meet your individual needs. The modular design of the BACT/ALERT 3D enables the most flexible, ergonomic configuration to meet space limitations. The control module manages all bottle inventory and data, while the incubator module performs the testing.

BACT/ALERT 3D Combination Module – The BACT/ALERT 3D Combination Module is an integrated system that uses only 20 inches of bench space. Now, even the smallest laboratories can get the highest-quality microbiology test results on-site.

BACT/ALERT 3D 60 – The BACT/ALERT 3D 60 is the latest addition to the BACT/ALERT 3D product range. Our space-saving design has been optimized still further. Combined with all the advantages of the larger volume modules, the BACT/ALERT 3D 60 ensures all laboratories can benefit from this technology. BACT/ALERT 3D 60 easily handles an annual workload of up to 3,600 blood/body fluid culture bottles, or up to 500 mycobacteria tests.
