Comparison of the automated plate assessment system (APAS) to manual plate reading of surveillance screening cultures and clinical urine cultures – a diagnostic study
The LADR Zentrallabor Dr. Kramer & Kollegen, a laboratory in Geesthacht, Germany presented their evaluation of the APAS technology for both Infection Control (MRSA and VRE screening) and Urine screening applications at DGHM 2022 in Berlin.

Impact of an Automated Plate Reader for MRSA and Urine Chromogenic Culture Plates
The low prevalence (~1% in UK) of MRSA colonisation means much time is spent reading and reporting negative culture plates. Similarly, a large proportion of urine cultures yield no significant bacterial growth. As such, a large amount of scientist time...

Evaluation of the APAS Independence as an artificial intelligence tool for urine culture reporting in a clinical hospital setting
Urine cultures (UC) constitute up to 30-40% of the workflow in clinical microbiology laboratories. Staffing considerations represent contemporary challenges, new tools are needed to address increasing demands and the evolving diversification of microbiology workflow.

Comparison of the APAS Independence automated plate reader system with manual standard-of-care for processing urine culture specimens
Urine cultures are amongst the highest volume tests run in clinical microbiology laboratories and usually require considerable manual labor to perform.

Streamlining Urine Processing with modular automation using DxM Autoplak and APAS Independence: A French experience with CPSE media
Investigation of urine samples remains a core focus for microbiology laboratories and has largely remained manual in nature.
