I think it can often be what one is use to. Our lab uses Microscan (rapid
and conventional )and API 20E's (rarely). I can inoculate an API rather quickly
but having also been in Micro for 26 years I gained experience with them when
we used them as the only ID system in our lab many years ago.
I found the bubbles in the Vitek cards a big pain. But I know labs that use
the Vitek and love it. The lab I work in has only "looked" at it and never used
it on a regular basis.
What LIS does the lab you work in use, Judy?
Do you use Lim Broths for GBS?
I like to chat with other Clinical Lab Microbiologists.
Oh... I do not work for API or Microscan.
