photoThe Biomic-2000 image analysis system and built-in LIS connectivity digitally reads and interprets standard NCCLS disk test plates in three seconds directly into a PC.
   The Expert-System 2358 drug-organism combination rules simultaneously check for unlikely results, ESBL and QC requirements. MICs from the disk diffusion gradient can be reported, and epidemiology reports and rapid identification test flow charts are included. The image processor reads blood-plates and bacteria, and can provide a better visual image on-screen than seen by the naked eye. The Windows 98/2000 software has built-in tutorials to guide microbiologists through procedures. The system eliminates reading and interpreting plates and entering results into the LIS.
