We have great pleasure in announcing that the 1.2.4 versions of the ProtoCOL 3, Protos 3, aCOLyte 3 and ChromaZona software are now available for downloading
Arab Lab 2017
Kate and Yasmin visited Arab Lab in Dubai this month. It was a great show for Synbiosis with lots of interest from both customers and distributors. Victor Debbas, our distributor out in the Middle East, also helped organise a very successful Synbiosis Distributor Meeting which was held the day before the show. Thanks to all those who attended.
Kate and Yasmin are attending the 27th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) in Vienna from 22nd – 25th April. They will be on stand 65 and demonstrating the ChromaZona.
The ChromaZona system, which has been reviewed by many prestigious clinical microbiology institutes worldwide, including the European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST), will be live on stand. The system has been proven to accurately analyse zones around antibiotic discs and automatically identify microbes cultured on chromogenic agar from many major media manufacturers.
Kate and Yasmin will demonstrate how ChromaZona, using its sensitive CCD camera, can precisely image zones around antibiotic discs and Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) strips. They will detail how ChromaZona’s eAST software can in seconds analyse zones and compare measurements to data from all organisms with MIC values in the system’s integrated EUCAST database, then list all antibiotics bacteria are sensitive to, and provide guidance for treatment options.
They will also be explaining how ChromaZona’s unique three colour lighting and powerful Chromogenic ID software can at the touch of a button, use colour and morphology to identify microorganisms plated on a range of chromogenic media including: Brilliance™; CHROMagar™; Colorex™ and HardyCHROM™.
The ChromaZona software generates objective, consistent zone measurement and plate image results and can be easily connected to a LIMS system or reports can be transferred into Excel. This provides fully traceable information which can be analysed any time and used to identify and monitor antimicrobial resistance trends.
