CHROMSCREEN™ FOR URINE CULTURES
ChromScreen™ analyzes microtiter plates containing chromogenic agar to screen out negative urine samples. This BIOMIC V3 software module allows high volume microbiology labs to process thousands of urine samples per day with limited manual intervention.
Microtiter plates containing chromogenic agar are inoculated with manual or automated pipettes. After a 12 hour incubation, BIOMIC V3 instantly reads plate wells as negative, inconclusive, or positive based on color image analysis. Users review all results on-screen and can edit as needed.
Negative results are reported 'No Pathogen Isolated'. Additional comments may be added: 'Mixed Enteric Organisms Isolated', 'Mixed Growth', 'Insignificant Growth', 'No Growth'. Positive results are reported e.g. 'Significant E. Coli Isolated' based on chromogenic agar color.
Inconclusive wells may be changed to positive or negative on-screen. Inconclusive and positive results may be traditionally plated for count and ID. Confirmed test results are saved and exported via text file.
1) Rapid, cost effective elimination of negative urines
2) Highly automated workflow with instant plate reading
3) High resolution plate images saved
