Powered by BD Synapsys™ microbiology informatics solution, the BD Kiestra™ ReadA intelligent incubation and imaging system provides closed door incubation and high throughput imaging, delivering accuracy through standardized digital image acquisition.
Provides accurate and consistent reading times with automated plate imaging, providing flexibility to laboratories to read images at different time-points per their operating protocols. This technology opens the possibility of new workflows across the incubation cycle.
Helps enhance bacterial growth by standardizing incubation times and conditions in a controlled, closed-door environment. The BD Kiestra™ ReadA may increase bacterial growth by up to 31% compared to traditional microbiology 1
Improve operational efficiency
Improve operational efficiency by automating plate sorting and distribution. Plates are automatically delivered to the appropriate incubator to begin the incubation and imaging protocol.
Capture images in a standardized manner to reduce variability, improve the consistency of results and see details invisible to the human eye.
Available as part of a track-based BD Kiestra™ laboratory automation solution or as a standalone instrument, allowing flexible options based on your laboratory’s current workflow and size
BD Synapsys™ microbiology informatics solution provides a patient summary overview to assist culture interpretation by laboratory staff. Providing access to the right information anywhere, anytime with the BD Synapsys™ solution may help improve laboratory decision-making
Automate plate management with four input stackers enabling continuous loading of inoculated plates. Each stacker can be configured to a specific task, including a priority plate infeed to allow the handing of priority plates when needed
Automate plate management with 4 output stackers for user-configurable plate sorting including waste handling, follow-up work and offloading of plates for external incubation
Parallel plate processing
Four input stackers connect to the infeed track to automatically move plates in and out of the incubator
High throughput imaging
High speed camera that can image up to 300 plates per hour
Closed door incubation
Enables constant temperature and humidity at stable O2 or CO2 levels
Laminar air flow
Laminar air flow stabilizes conditions for every individual plate stored in the incubator minimizing the chance of plates drying out
Standardized incubation times
Plate protocol will direct incubation condition, incubation duration and image times.
Automated plate orientation
Plate labels are scanned prior to imaging to ensure full traceability and consistent orientation for improved reproducibility and productivity of result reporting
BD Kiestra™ Optis technology
High-quality camera with customized optics and plate orientation to normalize and standardize images made over time and minimize variation between instruments. With 22 images taken of each plate, optimal pixels are identified for ideal image representation
Three different light sources
Top, bottom and side light for optimal colony presentation on high resolution monitors
High quality plate imaging
25-megapixel camera with a telecentric lens
