Representatives from Don Whitley Scientific recently exhibited at the WMA (Welsh Microbiological Association) Winter Meeting. The WMA was formed in 1977 and aims to advance the study of microbiology in Wales by facilitating education and communication.
This year’s programme had speakers from various areas of microbiology however the WMA pointed out that there were “fantastic presentations from experts in the field of Cystic Fibrosis from within Wales and further afield”. There were prizes given for the posters on display, the case presentations and also for the young investigator session. The breaks for drinks and meals gave delegates a fantastic chance to network with each other and also the exhibitors, such as Don Whitley Scientific.
On the Don Whitley stand at this years WMA Winter Meeting was the ProtoCOL 3 with software that is able to quickly and efficiently assess the size of zones around antibiotic discs to predict antibiotic resistance levels working alongside a EUCAST database to provide accurate results. The Whitley Jar Gassing System was also on the stand.
