Product News: Beckman Coulter Highlights Microbiology and Interdisciplinary Testing Solutions to Help Advance Patient Care at ASM Microbe

19 Jun 2019

Beckman Coulter, a global leader in clinical diagnostics will be demonstrating its microbiology and interdisciplinary testing solutions that help laboratorians future-proof the lab and advance patient care at the American Society for Microbiology conference, ASM Microbe, in San Francisco. During the conference, Beckman Coulter is also sponsoring an Industry and Science Showcase where attendees will learn how to know sooner and act faster when diagnosing and treating sepsis. 
Sepsis is a global crisis, affecting millions of people and costing healthcare organizations billions of dollars. Additionally, sepsis is difficult to diagnose, treatment is resource intensive, and time is critical for positive patient outcomes. Beckman Coulter’s comprehensive solutions spanning hematology, microbiology, immunoassay, chemistry and urinalysis can be utilized from the moment the patient enters the emergency department through time spent in intensive care. 
The Industry and Science Showcase entitled, Identify, Diagnose and Manage Sepsis Efficiently with Interdisciplinary Testing, will be held at 1:00pm on Saturday, June 22, 2019 in the Industry & Science Showcase Theater North, Exhibit Hall, Moscone Convention Center.  
AT BOOTH #1527: Attendees will hear how to advance care with a menu that matters, bring the benefit of automation to all and deliver greater insights through clinical informatics by:  

• Discovering Beckman Coulter’s industry-leading portfolio of in-vitro diagnostic tests for sepsis identification and management across multiple disciplines including microbiology, hematology and urinalysis

• Finding out how to automate all core aspects of microbiology specimen processing, from plating and streaking to digital culture management

• Boosting antimicrobial stewardship activities through proactive reporting of rapid mass spectrometry ID results and gold-standard* MICs all within an easy-to-use data management system

• Diminishing subjectivity in urinalysis, and significantly reducing the need for manual microscopic review and sample handling 
POSTER SESSION: Beckman Coulter will present two microbiology posters on Sunday, June 23 from 11:00am – 1:00pm. The posters featured include: CPHM-826: Multicenter Evaluation of Amoxicillin/Clavulanic Acid MIC Results for Enterobacteriaceae Using MicroScan Dried Gram Negative MIC Panels and CPHM-862: Multicenter Evaluation of Eravacycline MIC Results for Enterobacteriaceae Using MicroScan Dried Gram Negative MIC Panels.
