Scientific Digital Imaging’s Synbiosis Division

, a manufacturer of automated microbiological systems, introduces SynStats statistical analysis software, designed to analyze data from the ProtoCOL 3 automated colony counter and zone measurement system. The software provides automatic antibiotic efficacy and vaccine potency results from raw data.

Using SynStats analysis software, microbiologists can export their zone measurement and colony count data from the ProtoCOL 3 directly to SynStats. The software then provides a range of analyses including analyzing assays with single or multiple Latin Squares, producing a 5 + 1 standard curve and 2 + 2 and 3 + 3 Petri dish assays, high-lighting outliers and replacing missing values, performing parallel line and slope ratio analysis, and producing potencies with confidence limits, as well as providing analysis of variance. Results are provided in graphs and tables.

SynStats, is both European Pharmacopoeia and USP compatible and can be supplied with installation qualification (IQ), operational qualification (OQ), and performance qualification (PQ) documentation to allow the software to be integrated with the ProtoCOL 3 in a GMP-compliant environment.
