The objective of this project is to create a highly automated system for screening urinary tract infections. Urinary infections are the major cause of diagnostic intervention (in and outpatient). The urino culture is the most required examination in the field of microbiology. The intention is to perform a series of analyses on a urine sample in order to highlight early pathological situations in other body districts. There is urgency in the field of microbiology to become equipped with instruments that can act in automation at the call of diagnostic demand. There is also a request that the innovation have characteristics of sustainability according to the quality regulations dictated by the ISO 9000 quality management system. Furthermore, there is a need for the standardization of data. Currently, the medical microbiology field is not aligned with the rest of the world of analysis laboratories. Nowadays, in the normal laboratory, high automation diagnostic technology is present, particularly in the area of clinical chemistry. Microbiology is delayed for two main reasons: 1) elaborate analysis methods; 2) semi-quantitative interpretation of the results. The DIESSE Diagnostica Senese spa, understanding the necessity, has built an analysis system specifically for the screening of urinary infections. In this work, we present the experimentation process PLUS FINDER++, the results from which offer decisive improvement in response quality, and timing. It is capable of influencing the diagnostic process positively because the PLUS FINDER++ reports the results of the sample analysis in 2 hours and 46 minutes, compared to the standard 48 to 72 hours. It must also not be underestimated that, thanks to these qualities, healthcare costs undergo a substantial reduction. The experimentation was carried out in a number of healthcare structures, through a constant connection, in the analysis of the level of criticality, between the DIESSE operators present in the external structure alongside the in-house healthcare workers, in continual discussion with the professional operators of the primary company with its headquarters in Siena. It was this continuity and the analysis of the level of criticality in software defects, homepage graphics of the instrument or mechanical problems that have made an essential contribution to optimising the success of the PLUS FINDER++ System.
