WASP®DT: Walk-Away Specimen Processor Automates Microbiology Specimen Setup.
WASP®DT is an open platform, modular instrument, and the only one in its field that addresses all aspects of automated Microbiology specimen processing: planting and streaking, Gram slide preparation and enrichment broth inoculation, to name a few.
Specimen planting and streaking is an important job in Microbiology and needs to be done quickly, efficiently and to a high standard. Reliable and accurate diagnosis depends on the quality of the sample and proficiency of specimen set up. Despite its importance, the task of planting and streaking is a laborious repetitive activity that takes skilled personnel away from important interpretative work, esoteric testing and new assay technologies that require their expertise.
WASP®DT provides a much-needed solution that allows the re-deployment of valuable staff resources without compromising the quality of diagnostic testing. WASP®DT is designed to mimic the best technologist and to bring a high standard of consistent, reliable and accurate specimen setup.
WASP®DT is not a closed box that requires the Microbiology lab to adapt to it, but rather an open system that automates the current workflow of the lab. WASP®DT allows the freedom to walk away from specimen setup and focus on high level tasks.
