General Information

 

The PhenePlateTM system is an automated system for simple and rapid subtyping of bacteria for epidemiological, nosocomial and ecological studies. The system is based on the evaluation of the kinetics of biochemical reactions (by reading test results at several occasions), performed in 96 well microplates. The microplates (PhP plates) contain 2 to 8 sets of dehydrated reagents, which have been specifically selected for various groups of microorganisms.

High resolution PhP plates differentiate each isolate on 24 or 48 different reagents. The high resolution plates are used when a careful typing of each isolate is needed (e.g. for epidemiological investigations). The PhP-48 plates are also used for bacteria for which no special plates are available.

Rapid Screening   PhP-Plates:

Rapid screening PhP plates   differentiate each isolate on 11 reagents. Rapid screening plates are particular   suitable for ecological studies involving large numbers of isolates, when the   information of the whole population is more important than the information on   each individual isolate.

The PhenePlate software

The PhP software is a versatile software for analysis of typing data. It can be used to analyse up to 6000 isolates simultaneously. Some of the options included in the PhP software are

  • Reading of microplates using a flatbed scanner or a microplate reader
  • Importing and exporting data to Microsoft Excel
  • analysing of data from up to 6000 isolates
  • Clustering of data and presentation of dendrograms
  • Creation of and comparisons to reference data bases
  • Analysis of microbial populations using diversity indices and population similarity coefficients

If you want to try the PhP software, a demo version is available. Please E-mail us info@phplate.se
