All of the Benefits of Kirby-Bauer Testing, Automated!
Kirby-Bauer (KB) disk diffusion testing has been a mainstay of laboratory methods for susceptibility testing, but despite its low cost requires manual intervention for set up and reading.
The Radian® system is the first of this kind on the market that offers a fully automated and integrated system for KB disk diffusion testing. Starting from the creation of McFarland suspensions, Miller Hinton are then automatically seeded and susceptibility disks applied. Radian® increases productivity while decreasing operational cost, allowing laboratory staff more time to manage their ever-increasing workload.
Unmatched Flexibility and Customization
Radian® is a flexible antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) platform that can be used with antimicrobial disks from various manufacturers. Radian’s high-capacity antimicrobial carousel allows the system to randomly select from up to 50 antibiotics for protocols using up to 8 discs per 100mm plate.
Fully Automate, Digitally Read and Interpret AST Results
Radian can be retrofitted onto most existing WASPLab® platforms, taking advantage of the WASPLab® telecentric high-definition camera. Digital interpretations are made with the specialized imaging capabilities in combination with Halo Recognition Algorithms used by Radian® Expert System. Streamlining AST workflow using automation and AI allows for standardization, labor savings, and improved turnaround time. When validated by the laboratory, Radian® has the potential of early susceptibility reading. Radian can allow for more timely results and improved patient care.
Integrated and Automated LIS Reporting
COPAN’s Radian® system utilizes a bi-directional interface designed to work with the laboratory LIS to automatically identify the specimen, determine appropriate protocols, generate barcode labels, and seamlessly integrate results into the LIS.
