Increased quality and productivity in clinical analysis

Laboratory with some WASPLab

What is WASPLab?

WASPLab is a revolutionary technology that delivers fast and accurate results. WASPLab is a state-of-the-art digital system that automates every aspect of microbiology sample processing in combination with other systems and services. For example, this equipment can quickly confirm whether the result of an aseptic urine culture is positive or negative and produce a complementary study complete with the respective bacteria and antibiogram.


How it works

The WASPLab automates all stages of incubation, visualization, and identification of bacterial and infectious agents. The most innovative modules are:

• Urine swivel holder. Unit capable of continuously loading large containers with screw caps.
• Smart incubation. Homogeneous atmospheric conditions for consistent and uninterrupted bacterial growth.
• Image acquisition. Highly sophisticated camera and multiple lighting systems that produce high-resolution images.
• Automatic analysis of microorganisms. Advanced artificial intelligence algorithms that read, interpret and classify bacterial cultures with just one click.
