What other equipment will I need  to use the Flexicult™ tests?


Optional (but essential for POETIC RCT stage 3):

  • A mid stream urine collection kit.

  • An example is the PEEZY MSU kit ( This kit has been shown to reduce contamination rates in urine cultures (Jackson S.R. et al. BJU Int. 2005. Aug;96 (3):360-4).

  • 3 mL disposable pastettes. A pastette can be used when only  a small amount of urine is available. The minimum volume of urine for using Flexicult  is 2.5ml and this can be more easily distributed onto the plate using a pastette.
