Embrace automation in microbiology without the need for large-scale capital resources to streamline with the APAS Independence instrument.
 

Streamline your workflow

The intuitive nature of the APAS Independence instrument means your workflow remains the same no matter what modules* are used. Training on the Instrument is easy, and module-specific training can be added when required.
 

Save more than time

Not only does the APAS Independence Instrument save you time by alleviating the bottlenecks in bench reading, it also impacts many aspects of managing an efficient and effective microbiology lab. 

  • Budget management: Helps avoid budget overruns with predictable costs year on year. 
  • Increased workload: Adding Analysis Modules allow for optimal throughput. 
  • Process improvement: Reduce manual handling and contamination risks.
  • Quality and consistency: Reduce natural variation in the manual plate reading process.
  • Staff satisfaction: Utilize highly trained staff on cases that require your expertise.
  • Time management: Improve your teams’ efficiency by allowing them to focus on more meaningful activities.
  • Reduced workplace injury: Reduces potential RSI risks and staff downtime costs.

Embrace Automation in Microbiology

The APAS Independence is task-focused, compact, and designed specifically to overcome the bottleneck in manual culture plate reading by automatically triaging plates into three categories: 'significant', 'non-significant or 'negative', and 'for review'.

Unlike large-scale automation solutions, the APAS Independence instrument offers the benefits of standardization, but in a small, affordable, and flexible footprint designed to easily integrate with the majority of laboratories.
