The Culture and Sensitivity (BACT/ALERT) blood test detects and identifies bacteria causing bloodstream infections to guide effective antibiotic treatment. This test uses advanced BACT/ALERT bottles inoculated directly at the bedside for rapid results.

How It Works?

  • A sterile needle is used to draw a blood sample which is directly inoculated into BACT/ALERT aerobic and anaerobic culture bottles.
  • The carbon dioxide produced by bacteria metabolism causes the BACT/ALERT bottles to signal positive much faster than conventional cultures.
  • The positive bottle is unloaded, Gram stained, and subcultures to identify organisms and determine antibiotic susceptibilities.
  • The isolated bacteria are tested against various antibiotics to provide a susceptibility profile.
  • Results are available in 24–72 hours versus 48–72 hours for standard cultures.

When Recommended?

  • If bacterial blood infection or sepsis is suspected.
  • When the source of fever is unknown.
  • Patients with unexplained symptoms that may indicate spreading infection.
  • Immunocompromised patients.
  • If antibiotics have been ineffective.

Preparation

  • No special preparation needed.
  • Inform phlebotomist about any bleeding disorders or blood thinners.
Results
  • Positive culture confirms spreading infection requiring prompt, targeted antibiotic treatment based on identified bacteria and susceptibility profile.
  • Negative culture helps rule out blood infection, so other potential causes can be explored.
