Automated Susceptibility Testing.
With the device line MERLIN provides their customers a flexible degree of automation by using the MICRONAUT system.
MICRONAUT Software offers rapid and standardized reading, calculation, and interpretation of identification and susceptibility testing by using MICRONAUT systems
All patient data (specimen number, name, data of birth) and test types can be manually administered or imported from the mainframe. The MICRONAUT software generates work lists defining an optimized inoculation procedure considering an economic use of test plates.
Subsequently to evaluate the identification result is attached the corresponding susceptibility pattern.
This portion of the MICROANUT software checks the plausibility of the susceptibility test results. Identification results are compared with typical resistance profiles. In case of discrepancies to the typical profiles, additional tests are recommended for the corresponding isolates. Exceptional and impossible phenotypes can be detected.
The MICRONAUT software enables an optimal adjustment to your laboratory requirements. Besides the possibility of patient data registration and generation of ready to delivery laboratory findings, the MICRONAUT software can be extended by a quality control program and a statistic program.

What are the features of Precision™XS (a product of BioTek Instruments)?
MC Farland tubes are diluted automatically. The dispenser transfers this dilution with the necessary media into the microtiter plate.
How fast works Precision™XS?
Pipettes up to 50 microtiter plates (up to 200 tests) within 2 hours.
Further advantages of Precision™XS?
No need of additional Bouillon tubes or MICRONAUT reservoirs. Combined with BioStackTM the automated liquid handling throughput of 50 microtiter plates can be achieved.
