Beckman Coulter’s Microbiology Systems guide critical patient decisions using proven accuracy, enhance workflow efficiency and support antimicrobial stewardship activities with automated antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) and rapid identification (ID) testing.
DxM MicroScan WalkAway System
Detect antimicrobial resistance with proven expertise
The DxM MicroScan WalkAway system delivers trusted detection of emerging and critical antimicrobial resistance with gold-standard MIC accuracy. Designed with ease of use as a focal point, this bacterial identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing (ID/AST) system provides streamlined workflows and enhanced performance compared to its predecessors. The DxM MicroScan WalkAway system continues the legacy of innovation and high-quality products that have been trusted for 40 years. It enables the laboratory to optimize patient care while reducing risks, costs and operational burden associated with detecting emerging antimicrobial resistance.
With accurate detection of carbapenemase-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), reduced turnaround time for rapid, specialty ID panels and simultaneous processing of conventional, rapid and specialty panels on a single, automated platform, the DxM MicroScan WalkAway simplifies workflow and minimizes technologist interaction.
MicroScan WalkAway plus System
Engineered for optimal performance and flexibility
The MicroScan WalkAway plus system places the laboratory on the forefront of ID/AST testing while streamlining workflow through intelligent automation. It enables simultaneous processing of conventional, rapid and specialty panels on a single, automated platform and delivers accurate emerging resistance detection for the toughest pathogens, including VISA, VRSA and MRSA.
The MicroScan WalkAway plus system is ideal for mid- to high-volume usage and is designed to simplify workflow and minimize technologist interaction, while accommodating differing regional and institutional environments through extensive customization features.
MicroScan autoSCAN-4 System
Standardized ID/AST testing made simple
The MicroScan autoSCAN-4 semi-automated system provides simplified bacterial identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing (ID/AST) in a highly reliable and affordable package. The MicroScan autoSCAN-4 system processes panels in seconds, simplifying ID/AST while standardizing results. Over 35 years of trusted experience in reliability and conventional panel technology make the autoSCAN-4 an ideal supplemental system for detecting difficult organisms or as a primary instrument for low-volume usage.
The MicroScan autoSCAN-4 system includes Beckman Coulter’s LabPro Information Manager software and is designed to simplify workflow and minimize technologist interaction, while accommodating differing regional and institutional environments through extensive customization features. The LabPro Alert software automates detection of atypical results for quick reporting and directs staff to the most appropriate action, based upon customized institutional procedures.
Bruker MALDI Biotyper® System
Results within minutes support proactive antimicrobial stewardship
The Bruker MALDI Biotyper system is an industry-leading microbiology system used for rapid microbial identification. Together with the DxM MicroScan WalkAway system, the Bruker MALDI Biotyper can provide a rapid and accurate solution for bacterial identification (ID) and antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST). The Bruker MALDI Biotyper has high throughput rates which enable faster turnaround times (TATs). Target plates are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 24 to 96 wells.
With its small-footprint, the Bruker MALDI Biotyper fits easily into the most space-constrained laboratories with a compact, ergonomic and environmentally friendly design. The Bruker MALDI Biotyper is a cost-effective, highly accurate system which is applicable to a wide range of microorganisms. It offers rapid identification of organisms, thus providing critical information to clinicians.
