|1. (WO2018136859) PREPARATION OF CUSTOMIZED TEST PANELS|
|Applicants:||BECKMAN COULTER, INC.
|Title:||PREPARATION OF CUSTOMIZED TEST PANELS|
Customized test panels are prepared for use in a biological testing system. Initially, a user loads a consumable preparation system of the biological testing system with consumable elements such as a panel frame or panel tray and one or more test array magazines. The consumable preparation system thereafter separates a test array from a test array magazine in accordance with a selection protocol and inserts the test array into the panel frame/tray. This process of separation and insertion is repeated until a test panel is fully formed in accordance with the selection protocol. The test panel is thereafter used in biological testing system to identify and/or determine antimicrobic susceptibility for a given microbe.
