A Faster & Improved Microbiology Workflow Now Available in Europe
Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) have announced availability in Europe (CE marked) of the new BD Kiestra™ InoqulA system powered by BD Synapsys™ informatics solution.
The BD Kiestra InoqulA's features include:
- enhanced workflow flexibility
- on-demand processing of urgent samples
- user can switch seamlessly between two modes to process liquid and non-liquid samples
- continuous loading and unloading of samples and plates during operation, minimizing interruptions to workflow
- unique rolling-bead technology to generate more discrete colonies than traditional manual loop-based streaking
"Sample processing has historically been manual, error-prone, and labor-intensive," said Cecilia Soriano, vice president and general manager of Microbiology at BD. "The BD Kiestra InoqulA allows the user to prioritize urgent samples immediately for on-demand processing minimizing workflow interruption. The BD Kiestra™ InoqulA also reduces the need for subculture, which may shorten the time for microbial identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing, allowing earlier result reporting."
BD Synapsys informatics solution is an advanced, secure and scalable platform that provides connectivity for several BD diagnostic instruments, rules-based workflow and on-demand actionable insights to help laboratories impact their performance.
BD Kiestra InoqulA, powered by BD Synapsys informatics solution, supports complete traceability of plates through automatically generated barcodes. Several workflow enhancements—offline inoculation, simplified batch ordering processes, and custom culture protocols can be easily viewed via custom reports in the BD Synapsys informatics solution.
BD continues to invest in automation and innovation for the microbiology laboratory. For more information on BD Kiestra lab automation solutions, please click here or use the 'Request Information' button provided below.
