PA-100 AST System

Advanced diagnostics for Urinary tract infection to support treatment decisions

The PA-100 AST System is an automated urine analyser that combines phase contrast microscopy and nanofluidics to make antibiograms available at the point of care. Because only by using ground-breaking technology can we achieve the most advanced diagnostic performance.

More details

Advanced diagnostics for the point of care

  • Automated and rapid analysis of urine samples with a lab-on-a-chip technology
  • Optimised workflow: results during the first visit of the patient to the physician
  • No sample pre-treatment

Fast, reliable results

  • AST as fast as the biological response of the cell to the antibiotic
  • Phenotypic AST, based on actual resistance profiles

Fight AMR

  • Informed antibiotic prescription decision in less than one hour
  • Avoid empiric treatment and reduce AMR spreading
