APAS Independence in lab
"It’s quite exciting to be the first in the UK to use the APAS Independence. The instrument has delivered on its promise, providing workflow efficiencies and is functioning well. The future potential of the instrument is great with the opportunity to expand into other areas, such as other high-volume negative screening applications, additional media and antibiotic susceptibility tests."
