IBMS Success for Don Whitley Scientific

Don Whitley Scientific once again exhibited at the Institute of Biomedical Science Congress. This bi-annual three day event is held at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.

The event combines business, networking and social exchange and enables delegates to view new equipment and products, extend general awareness of techniques and technologies and make contact with representatives of exhibiting companies.

This year the Don Whitley Scientific exhibition area was purpose-built to accommodate the cutting edge technology on show. This included the Walkaway Specimen Processor (WASPLab), the Whitley A35 Anaerobic Workstation, and ChromaZona from Synbiosis, the new automated microbial identification AST analysis system. Members of the DWS sales force were on hand to deal with any customer queries.

The stand also featured an area where delegates could interact with our virtual lab, an interactive presentation where our product range could be explored in detail.

As is the custom with at IBMS, we also held a competition. This year we celebrated 40 years of serving the microbiology industry, with Love2Shop vouchers on offer for the lucky winners. Visitors to the stand needed to look for clues in a video presentation, which would give them the answers to a range of questions.  And each and every visitor to our stand had the opportunity to further indulge in a corporate cupcake.

Don Whitley Scientific at Microbe 2016

Don Whitley Scientific once again exhibited at Microbe 2016, the bi-annual conference organised by the Sheffield branch of the Institute of Biomedical Scientists. Microbe is one of the most important events in the calender for many local, national and international biomedical scientists. The symposium featured a programme of fantastic speakers on subjects such as viral infections, infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance.

This year’s theme was “Book Titles”. Don Whitley Scientific appeared as The Addams Family with a stand dressed with cobwebs, candelabras and other spooky props. The team dressed up as the iconic family, featuring Pugsley, Wednesday, Uncle Fester, Lurch and Cousin Itt.

 

Exhibited at the event were the ChromaZona and DG250 Anaerobic Workstation. ChromaZona is an automated microbial identification and antibiotic susceptibility testing (AST) analysis system for faster results in busy clinical laboratories. The Whitley DG250 Workstation has a small footprint but offers a generous working space to process, culture and examine anaerobic samples. Representatives from Copan Italia were also at the Don Whitley Scientific stand to discuss WASPLab and in particular the reading station where plated samples can be scrutinised under a high level of detail.

Don Whitley Scientific attend IBMS

Don Whitley Scientific once again attended the Institute of Biomedical Science’s bi-annual conference, exhibiting products including the WASPLab, manufactured by Copan Italia SPA. Held at the ICC in Birmingham, the IBMS Congress is perhaps the most important meeting for the clinical audience. Standing alongside companies such as Leica, Olympus and CellPath, Don Whitley Scientific attended IBMS to promote equipment and services specifically designed for the clinical field.

Representatives from Copan joined Don Whitley Scientific on the exhibition stand, with whom they work with to distribute, install and integrate products in the UK. WASPLab is a robotic machine that could lead to huge advances in microbiology. WASPLab, which stands for Walk Away Specimen Processor Lab, moves samples from front end processing to full specimen management, automated incubation and digital microbiology, and visitors to the stand at IBMS could get up close and see these processes in action.

Featured on the Don Whitley Scientific stand was a Whitley A35 Workstation as well as a ProtoCOL 3 colony counter and zone measurer.  The Whitley A35 Workstation drew lots of attention from passers by. An important element of clinical lab work is the ability to incubate samples quickly and efficiently. With the patented Instant Access Porthole and rapid airlock system on the A35 providing a fantastic solution for this, people were very impressed. The ProtoCOL 3 was being shown with the mASTer software. This software makes it easier to assess how resistant or susceptible bacteria are to antibiotics. The system also measures the sample alongside breakpoint values in the EUCAST database.

Nicola Millican, a biomedical scientist from Leeds General Infirmary also attended the IBMS as a guest of Don Whitley Scientific. Nicola gave a New Technology Showcase presentation explaining how Leeds put together a successful business case for the purchase of WASPLab for the microbiology department at the LGI.

An exciting competition prize was also a popular attraction to the stand as the chance to win “Bob” the Meccanoid G15 Personal Robot was on offer to the winner of the trivia question. The question focused on the fact that Don Whitley Scientific designs and manufactures products in house and is a company that is “engineering your future in microbiology”. Bob epitomised this ethos as he was made out of Meccano, a model construction system also made by a proud British company with an innovator at its helm, Frank Hornby. The winner of Bob is Lorraine Clark, from John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxfordshire.

The IBMS congress was once again a fantastic success for Don Whitley Scientific – it was an important event for showing our products to people working in biomedical science and a great opportunity to exhibit WASPLab once again.
