Introducing Radian RAST
AST results are essential to selecting the best antimicrobial therapy for each patient. Today more than ever, the reduction of the AST turnaround time remains one of the primary objectives to be achieved by microbiologists, to provide patients with rapid antimicrobial treatment.
Copan’s Radian® has already permitted the flexible, cost-effective, and accurate disk-diffusion method to shine among other AST methods, but this wasn’t enough. Integrating EUCAST Rapid AST Rules (RAST) into the automated workflow, last November we brought Radian® to be the first fully automated platform to provide accurate therapy indications from positive hemoculture with just a 4-hours incubation.
During the last months, we worked to bring Radian® advantages even further: accelerate AST also for critical samples other than positive blood cultures.
