The Patient is the Centre: Integrated Management of Results with WASPLab System

In the last decade automation introduced innovation in the bacteriology laboratories since plates can be automatically streaked, incubated and growth digitally recorded and evaluated. In this study, we present an additional feature introduced in our laboratory through WASPLab (Copan, Italy) that consists in the contextual evaluation and interpretation of all the patient specimens by a single microbiologist. We present two clinical cases optimally managed employing this strategy.
