A cost-effective middleware that brings laboratories to the forefront of technology 

TDBactiLink is a dedicated middleware solution for bacteriology laboratories looking to make the most of technological advances and paperless organization without changing their existing laboratory information system (LIS).

This middleware comes between the existing LIS and automated bacteriology instruments. It enables the user to implement a real paperless bacteriology and to benefit from all the advantages of the cost-effective paperless workbench.

“With TDBactiLink and the paperless bacteriology, the laboratory improves its efficiency, its traceability and reliability, reduces turnaround times and thus, improves patient care and reduces healthcare system costs,” said Dr. Stéphane Agay, Product Line Director and Scientific Advisor for TECHNIDATA.


Interoperability lies at the core of the system

TDBactiLink receives electronically the tests requests transmitted by the existing LIS, and then manages the sample reception and finally resends the results once they have been clinically and/or technically reviewed.

“TDBactiLink middleware uses standard communication protocols such as HL7. It easily interfaces with any LIS and microbiology instruments, including mass spectrometry instruments and laboratory automation systems such as BD KiestraTM or COPAN WASPLabsTM. Thus, the laboratory is free to use, for today and tomorrow, any combination of instruments, organization and configuration,” said Dr. Stéphane Agay.

A laboratory expertise to serve bacteriology laboratories

TDBactiLink has been designed for and with microbiologists. This middleware provides the user with functionalities that perfectly meet bacteriology laboratories’ specific needs in terms of analytical processes managed by customizable protocols, epidemiology and preventive actions associated with the fight against nosocomial infections. Thus, TDBactiLink benefits from TECHNIDATA’s experience and known expertise in this field, as demonstrated by the adoption of the already available dedicated LIS for this discipline.

“With TDBactiLink, we make the most of our skills and expertise to meet the increasing demand for this type of solution. Our aim is to keep on expanding thanks to this new growth driver including concluding distribution agreements with international partners, especially on the American marketplace,” said Jacques Baudin, Senior VP Business Development & Marketing, TECHNIDATA.
