The revolutionary AST software (measuring antibiotic susceptibility testing easily and rapidly) is designed for use with ProtoCOL 3 automated zone measurement system. The software quickly and simply measure zones around antibiotic discs and then automatically predicts antibiotic resistance from results.
At the touch of a button the results can be automatically compared to data from all the tested organisms that have breakpoint values in the EUCAST database.
The AST software lists which antibiotics the bacteria are sensitive to, in less than half the time it takes to perform these tasks manually.
The software is GLP compliant and generates zone measurements and plate images which can be transferred and stored in Excel to eliminate keying and data transfer errors, as well as provide a full audit trail and reports.
