The BIOMIC Vision AST System can be utilised both as a primary and back-up/complimentary AST-ID system in microbiology labs. It provides CLSI (NCCLS) and BSAC standard method antibiotic disk-test results of the broadest range of drugs for yeast and bacteria, many contraindicated in other systems. In rapid-batch entry mode, up to 6 plates per minute are read by the BIOMIC after it automatically interprets the correct drug-panel based on organism and/or LIMS-work list.
The BIOMIC Vision AST System will enhance the productivity and reduce material costs and labour time for your laboratory. Test and QC results are automatically checked by an advanced Expert system based on CLSI or BSAC guidelines.
BIOMIC contains IDTree software, based on CLSI-M35 (Rapid Final Identification of Bacteria and Yeast) and provides rapid simple procedures to identify 80-90% of isolates in minutes. IDTree contains explanations, test result photos and procedure flow schemes.
BIOMIC takes advantage of the flexibility and low cost CLSI or BSAC disk test method and materials, and eliminates the labour to read, interpret and record results. BIOMICÂs Windows-based system is intuitive, reliable and is used in over 450 laboratories in 48 countries Worldwide.
