GC Labs, a leading clinical diagnostics company in Korea, has introduced WASPLab® (bioMerieux, France), the first microbiology Total Laboratory Automation system in Korea.
WASPLab® is an automated test system that automatically processes the series of steps from sample receipt to inoculation, culture, and interpretation, which had all been conducted manually.
In particular, it automatically interprets the culture as positive or negative and allows test staff to easily double-check images on the monitor before reporting the final results to clinical professionals.
GC Labs will officially begin to use the system in March next year after a 6-month period of evaluation. The company expects to further improve competitiveness in terms of test efficiency and quality with the introduction of the first microbiology total laboratory automation system in Korea.
