SAFE:The system is safe because there is no sample handling, the containers are all sealed and there is no aerosol production. Thus safe for the person handling the sample also the sample is not contaminated.
QUALITY:Using Robobact system there is an increase in recovery of pathogenic micro-organism for stool samples and a good recovery for low charge samples for urinary pathogens becoming more and more important for immunodepressed people. It is possible to obtain good separation for high charge sample up to 10 9CFU/mL.
STANDARDIZATION: All steps from sample collection to colony isolation are standardized.Quantity of samples is standardized by using calibrated loops, a specially designed robotic streaking make always the same design on the agar media, enrichment time and incubating time are controlled by a timer.
Each sample can be introduced in Robobact instrument in any time as the instrument is random and continous access.
SAVE ON COST: In case of stool sample colony isolation is done in 24 hours included enrichment instead of 48 hours with manual technique.Operator time is saved as there is no sample handling.There is no need of further plastic disposable like containers, loops, pipette tips, or agar plates and broth because all is included in the system.Faster and easier identification using chromogenic media.
24 HOURS WORK FLOW: Robobact system is random and continuous access, this lead to a real possibility of analysis workflow over 24 hours and thus better turn around time.
