Abstract

We compared the results of 505 urine specimens prospectively processed by both conventional manual processing (MP) with 16–24 h incubation to BD Kiestra™ Total Laboratory Automation (TLA) system with a shortened incubation of 14 h: 97% of culture results were clinically concordant. TLA processing was associated with improved standardization of time of first culture reading and total incubation time.
