Automating the AST gold-standard method

Disk diffusion is the only Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing that provides a true image of bacterial growth, enabling microbiologists to detect culture purity, heterogeneous growth or colony morphology, as well as antibiotic interactions, to adapt antimicrobial treatment more rapidly.​ With Radian®, you can have your cake and eat it too. Automation gets rid of the disadvantages linked to manual Disk Diffusion while maintaining at the same time its original advantages.


Knock down your AST incubation time!

A fast time to result is crucial in the treatment of critical patients. Integrating EUCAST Rapid AST Rules (R-AST) into the automated workflow, Radian® is the first fully automated solution to provide accurate therapy indications from positive hemoculture starting from a four-hours incubation.

Halo Interpretation

Radian® Expert System

Harnessing our Digital Microbiology approach, it brings S/I/R interpretation right in your hands.

Think integrated

Automations empowering each other

Combined with the other modules, Radian® pushes the boundaries of clinical microbiology automation, helping clinicians take rapid therapeutic decisions.

Colibrí™ prepares the AST tube**, WASP® streaks with the fitting pattern, and WASPLab® imaging system and algorithms make possible the Expert Interpretation.


For faster and meaningful results

Efficiency, scalability, cost-saving, TAT reduction, resource optimization: the transition to an automated lab is a radical step that will change your whole perspective on the future of your lab.

There is no top-grade laboratory without a plan for automatization.



Radian® In-Line Carousel receives plates dedicated to AST disk dispensing on a parallel conveyor, without compromising the throughput of WASP® and WASPLab®.


Raise your standards

Radian® categorizes antibiotic susceptibility results using EUCAST/CLSI updated rules, laboratory RAPID expert rules, and EUCAST RAPID rules to allow the possibility of performing Rapid Antibiotic Susceptibility
Testing (R-AST).


Like a whole antibiotic library

Radian® In-Line Carousel allows high disk dispensing flexibility thanks to its 50 positions ATB wheel and its 1 to 8 disk deposit protocols, assuring high quality and standardization.


Customizable and user friendly

Through the easy and intuitive graphic interface, the operator can report fast and consult the data readily, and autonomously customise Radian® Expert System.


Dive into the data

The integration of WASPLab® WebApp, Radian®, and LIS maximizes data traceability and management and helps supporting everyday routines, as well as epidemiological studies.
