Microbiology system

07 February, 2008

The Biomic V3 Microbiology System now performs semi-automated reading for all varieties of Etest (AB Biodisk) strips. An enlarged plate image with the Etest strip(s) and its drug-specific MIC scale is displayed on-screen. The user selects the appropriate MIC value, triggering an S-I-R interpretation. Etest results can be printed or transferred to an LIS. High resolution colour Etest images can also be saved for future review.
