LIS for Microbiology Labs
Use MicroPath Ē.ternity®, an all-inclusive lab information system (LIS). First, when cultures arrive at your lab or microbiology department, a bar-coded accession number retrieves the patient and culture information. Second, MicroPath automatically associates the culture media and generates the number of specimen and media labels. Also, MicroPath seamlessly supports non-culture or serological testing.
The MicroPath Ē.ternity® laboratory information system for culture diagnosis is flexible and easily adapts to support your lab’s specific process. Even more, MicroPath provides an easy way for your lab to design or customize its own label format. Finally using these for specimen, culture, and media labels.
For non-culture or serological testing performed in the microbiology department, worklists may be created and resulted in a similar fashion. Consequently, worklists are built in the order in which the specimens are processed. So, there is no need to sort specimens into a worklist order prior to testing.
Also, it easily performs result entries for those cultures that require the documentation of significant findings. Furthermore, it isolates, biochemical testing, and/or organism identification and sensitivity, as well as, Preliminary/Final sign-out.
The system allows the quick performance of each of these tasks from one screen using the workup manager. Labs can quickly enter information, including the review and acceptance of the antibiotic sensitivity using a Vitek, Microscan or manually.
Not only that, the MicroPath LIS stores antibiotic/organism-specific patterns per approval by NCCLS. Furthermore, the system will neatly organize culture information in a hierarchy. So, any user will clearly see what is done on each culture. It is also accessible, even if multiple techs work on it over several days.
MicroPath provides mechanisms for batch result entries, which allows technologists to quickly update or finalize cultures with the same result.

- OneVersion™ ensures seamless product updates as new features are released
“As microbiology changes, I am able to customize MicroPath® according to CLSI changes and organism nomenclature changes. I am able to interface MicroPath to accessory equipment without the help of middleware. In addition, MicroPath easily interfaces with traditional middleware to susceptibility instruments. The mapping is quite simple and their technical support is responsive.”
