Automating the AST gold-standard method

Disk diffusion is the only Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing that provides a true image of bacterial growth, enabling microbiologists to detect culture purity, heterogeneous growth or colony morphology, as well as antibiotic interactions, to adapt antimicrobial treatment more rapidly.​ With Radian®, you can have your cake and eat it too. Automation gets rid of the disadvantages linked to manual Disk Diffusion while maintaining at the same time its original advantages.

Cut the AST incubation time to 4 hours

A fast time to result is crucial in the treatment of critical patients. Integrating EUCAST Rapid AST Rules (R-AST) into the automated workflow, Radian® BC is the first platform to provide accurate therapy indications for Blood Stream Infection patients with just a 4-hours incubation.
