Workshop «Automated Imaging for Microbiology -
From Culture Plate to Pathogen Identification»
Automation has reached the clinical microbiology lab. While robotic solutions have replaced almost all human interaction in pre-analytics, microscopic analysis (e.g. of Gram or parasite samples) is usually done manually. To fill this gap, MetaSystems GmbH, a leading manufacturer of automated microscope imaging systems, has teamed up with Copan S.P.A, a renowned manufacturer of automated microbiology specimen processors, miacom diagnostics GmbH, an innovative provider of FISH based multiplex assays for pathogen identification, and Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH, famous manufacturer of high-end research microscopes, in order to join their skills developing modern imaging solutions for routine microbiology.
