Automated Reading, interpretation & Segregation of bacterial culture proven with over 200,000 samples and counting!
PhenoMATRIX™ offers WASPLAB™ users an exclusive selection of highly sophisticated algorithms completely unparalleled in the industry. The innovative software automatically recognizes organisms through advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) allowing microbiology labs to read, interpret, and segregate bacterial cultures with the click of a button. The robust system is backed by a mathematical model for the prediction of colonies in the dataset. The results are then presented to the Medical Technologist for final interpretation and resulting.

NEVER TOUCH A NEGATIVE PLATE AGAIN!
The PhenoMATRIX™ Suite of Algorithms Includes:
Chromogenic Detection of any Organism of Interest
(MRSA, VRE, ESBL, GBS)
Enhanced Vision and Sensitivity
By setting the algorithms to evaluate the value, hue and saturation of the color pigmentation present in chromogenic media, COPAN’s software can accurately detect and differentiate organisms on any manufacturer’s chromogenic agar. With this capability, PhenoMATRIX™ algorithms detect even the smallest single colonies, so you’ll never miss a positive!
Urine Culture Segregation Based on Colony Counts
with Growth, No Growth Discrimination
Quantify and Segregate
Based on customizable user defined thresholds, Growth / No Growth algorithm counts colonies and triages urine cultures into No Growth, <10 CFU, >10 CFU or any user defined categories. This segregation speeds up the overall reading and processing time for urine cultures and can be performed on both whole plates and bi-plates. No Growth urine cultures can be quickly verified, resulted and plates sent automatically to trash. Cultures with <10 CFU comprising of contaminates or normal genitourinary flora can be quickly reported. Categorization of urine cultures allows the laboratory to speed through the daily workload so that true positive urines can be quickly worked up for AST, ID or further investigations.
Automatic Colony Recognition on Standard Medium
Differentiate Normal Flora from Cultures that Need Workup
Copan’s colony recognition algorithm automatically recognizes bacterial colonies by comparison with its massive phenotyping database. Phenotypical analysis takes culture interpretation to another level. For urine cultures, for example, the algorithms not only segregate growth based upon cfu counts, but also classify cultures into Normal Genitourinary Flora (NGUF) or Contaminates and segregates these from “Significant Positive Cultures” that need ID, AST or further investigation. Automatic recognition of the genus and species of colonies growing on standard culture medium, combined with user defined rules, standardizes the interpretation of bacterial cultures and optimizes workflow efficiency. Colony recognition algorithms work with different types of investigations by combining user defined rules and apply them to different specimen types and specific organisms of interest, like Group A or Group B streptococcus, in swab cultures.
Application of User-Defined Expert Rules to Filter Outputs and Reporting
Each laboratory uses standard and unique rules for how they interpret bacterial cultures. PhenoMATRIX™ can apply each laboratory’s personalized rules combined with demographic information from a patient’s LIS record to provide a higher level of culture segregation, alerting the operator when a particular culture needs additional scrutiny. Users expert rules, plus patient demographic information, provide an additional filter for standard report outputs.
