Medical Imaging: Petri plate calibration
Although automation is widely used in clinical chemistry, hematology and immunology laboratories, the microbiology laboratory has only recently adopted automation.
Automation of the clinical microbiology laboratory is a multifunctional process, including the incubation and imaging of inoculated cultures on plates. The end-user is now assessing an image instead of a physical plate in order to perform a presumptive identification.
Currently, there is no agreement among manufacturers on the way to handle these Petri plate images from a color acquisition and a visualization perspective.
Interested parties should develop a proposal for assessing Petri plate readers and display management.
