Helping your lab make a difference in AMS

In a world of ever-challenging Antimicrobial Resistance, bioMérieux is your committed partner for Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS). By putting diagnostics at the heart of AMS, labs help drive informed decisions. Count on bioMérieux to provide your laboratory with the most up to date and complete AMS solution to fight resistance and help sustain antibiotics for future generations.

VITEK® MS PRIME further strengthens your capacity to support AMS. By reporting ID results even faster, you help drive informed clinical decisions that optimize antibiotic patient therapy earlier.


Just 4 steps for simple, standardized sample prep

Make sample preparation for VITEK® MS easier, streamlined and more standardized with the new VITEK® PICKME™.


Designed by microbiology experts, VITEK® PICKME™ looks like a pen and is just as easy to use. Its disposable nib lets you easily pick up a colony just by contact and then smear a thin layer onto the VITEK® MS-DS target slide spot. The nib is then hygienically ejected directly into an appropriate waste container.

  • Significant time savings for sample spot preparation
  • Reduced variability among users
  • “Mucoid” and “dry” colonies considerably easier to deposit (vs. loops)
  • Improved homogeneity and thinner deposit, even for very mucoid colonies
