BD Synapsys™ Microbiology Informatics Solution Among New Offerings Shown at European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID)Apr 19, 2018
FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., April 19, 2018 –BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX), a leading global medical technology company, today introduced several new informatics and automation solutions for clinical laboratories, which may play a critical role in the fight against infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance. The new molecular, microbiology and software solutions will be showcased at the upcoming European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) in Madrid, Spain.
The company announced the plan for the commercial availability of BD Synapsys™ microbiology informatics solution, which provides laboratories with secure connectivity across instruments and locations. The new easy-to-use, browser-based application will help streamline workflows, automate manual processes, and facilitate on-demand actionable insights. Together these capabilities will enable laboratories to improve productivity, simplify compliance, and ultimately get results to clinicians more efficiently.
The BD Synapsys solution will enable on-demand access to data and actionable insights, initially supporting BD BACTEC™ FX systems, BD Kiestra™ solutions, and in the United States BD VeritorTM Plus systems, with plans to include other BD clinical microbiology instruments in the future. This solution helps laboratories and hospitals meet cybersecurity and data privacy standards. The BD Synapsys solution will soon be available in the United States and will be offered in Western Europe and Canada.
“BD understands our lab needs an advanced informatics solution that supports integrated workflow across lab instruments, with access to data across all systems to better utilize our resources, reduce turnaround times and error rates, and show efficiency data in order to maximize the usage of our instrumentation to ultimately allow us to better serve our physicians and patients,” said Alanna Emrick, Microbiology Manager at UMC Health System.
