Measurement software upgrade

Synbiosis’ eAST software for automatic zone measurement of antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) plates has been upgraded to improve antibiotic SIR (Susceptible, Intermediate, Resistant) category determination.

East Automated Zone Measurement Software

It rapidly generates and analyses AST data, making it ideal for regulated clinical and antibiotic development laboratories.

The new eAST software now has all the 2018 breakpoint values for European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) and Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) guidelines included in its expert rules database.

The plate images can be stored in a secure SQL database for cross-referencing.
