Novelty of Patent
NOVELTY OF PATENT
1.The invention brings out an apparatus and method for analyzing bacteria. The apparatus includes a section for preparing an analyte sample from specimen and a detector to detect optical information from each particle in this analyte sample. It also has a controller to detect the non-fermentative bacteria on the basis of detected optical information. Furthermore the invention also gives a method for analyzing bacteria.
2.The present patent provides improved apparatus and method for analyzing bacteria in the given specimen more simply and rapidly than the conventional techniques. The main characteristic of this invention is the apparatus which gives an optical information of each particle of analyte sample due to which one can easily detect whether the bacteria is fermentative or non-fermentative.
Novelty of patent
3.The novelty of the given patent which is an Apparatus and Method for analyzing bacteria by Yasuyuki Kawashima is under mentioned: (a)The present invention provides an apparatus and a method for detecting Fermentative or Non-Fermentative bacteria more easily, rapidly and accurately than the conventional techniques. (b)Further, the present invention provides an apparatus and a method for detecting kind of bacteria contained in the specimen is Fermentative bacteria or Non-Fermentative bacteria more easily, rapidly and accurately than the conventional techniques. (c) Hitherto in the European Patent publication no. 1136563 the method for automatically analyzing bacteria without being cultivated is disclosed. According to method given in the present invention the presence of bacteria, in the specimen, can be detected on the basis of Fluorescence staining and in very short period of time irrespective of, whether the bacteria are...
