OXOID SHOWS NEW PRODUCTS FOR THE
CLINICAL MICROBIOLOGY LABORATORY AT ECCMID 2003
Oxoid is delighted to announce that it will be attending the 13th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases ( ECCMID) which will be held in Glasgow from 10 to 13 May 2003. The Oxoid team will be on hand at Stand 127 to demonstrate the latest additions to the Oxoid range and discuss the use of these products in the clinical laboratory.
The DuPont Qualicon RiboPrinter® Microbial Characterization System will be on show. The RiboPrinter® provides an automated genetic fingerprint (RiboPrint™ pattern) of any bacterium in less than 8 hours and enables similarities and subtle differences between bacteria to be detected to aid in epidemiological studies. The system allows users to share data electronically, enabling them to take full advantage of the inherent reproducibility of RiboPrint™ pattern data. Oxoid is the exclusive distributor for the DuPont Qualicon Range in Europe and Australia.
Oxoid’s aura image will also be available for demonstration on the stand. Aura image is a powerful tool for antimicrobial susceptibility testing, incorporating an innovative image analysis system for accurate, automatic zone size measurement, plate barcode reader, automatic disc recognition, interpretative database and epidemiology package.
Visitors will be able to try out the Oxoid website - www.oxoid.com - to see for themselves the wealth of information that can be obtained. Completion of a short survey will also give visitors the chance to win a digital camera to be given away by Oxoid at the event.
So be sure to visit the Oxoid team on stand 127 at ECCMID 2003 or visit www.oxoid.com for details of these products.
