Flexicult™ - Quantitation of bacteria - examples

  • Count the number of (pure or predominant) colonies in the large section

No bacteria visible or <15 bacterial colonies is equivalent to ≤102 CFU/mL) = No bacterial UTI

15 – 20 individual colonies is equivalent to 103 cfu/mL. = No bacterial UTI

>20 individual colonies (still visible as distinct spots) is equivalent to 103 to ≤105 CFU/mL. = No bacterial UTI

Semi-confluent to confluent growth (>105 CFU/mL) = UTI positive. Go on to identification of bacteria.
