APAS Independence

Following its success, we partnered with the Australian Institute of Machine Learning to develop the Automated Plate Assessment System (APAS®). This technology performs automated image capture, analysis and interpretation of culture plates delivering efficiencies to the microbiology workflow. In 2016 it became the first artificial intelligence diagnostic medical device to achieve FDA Class II clearance. The technology is currently being commercialised through LBT’s wholly owned subsidiary company Clever Culture Systems.

LBT Innovations is exploring opportunities to extend our platform APAS® “intelligent imaging” technology towards new applications including wound treatment, histopathology and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing, broadening our scope from practical laboratory processes to cutting-edge computer vision and analysis.
