"Biolog" ID system

Also take a look at the Vitek system, by BioMeriux Vitek.  I've looked at
the Biolog system in the past.  They have a good environmental isolate
database, however, I could not get consistent/repeatable results when
validating with ATCC reference strains (this was a year ago...I don't know
if they have made any improvements since then).  API has an automated
system, as does Baxter.  They should all be displaying their "wares" at
ASM in May.  If you or your colleagues are going, you should be able to
see each of these systems IN ACTION!  Good luck! -Dr. Michael Miller
