20000th Identification!

Earlier this morning, I came across the exciting find that the WIP system had been used to make its 20000th identification. It’s hard to express my amazement that a little bit of code I strung together in 2012 has managed to have such a global impact. The honors of 20K go to Canada, and there …

Congrats Jeanne + An Evening to Remember!

Last night, I had the honor of attending the retirement celebration of Jeanne vonRentzell, an undoubtedly boisterous voice in the Micro world at Loyola. I didn’t talk about it last night because the event was already marked by the joyous train of speeches, but I do have a story to share. My dad and I …

Minor Vibrio WIP Update

Hello everyone! I’ve made a minor tweak to the Vibrio WIP to bring it into alignment with ASHEX and Enterics WIPs. There is no calculation change, though doing this tweak allowed me to reduce the file size of the calculator considerably. If you’re getting weird results (like every result appears as 8.33%), please clear your …

ASHEX18XB WIP is now live!

Greetings Microbiology Community, I come to you today with a special announcement. Thirteen years after my dad first approached me with the idea of building the ASHEX table, the 1000th Gram-negative, non-fermenting clinical isolate was recorded this past week. The additional biochemical results are stored in the brand new ASHEX18XB Web Identification Program, which has …

ASHEX18XB is in the works! New tutorial video.

Greetings everyone, Adam here with an end-of-summer announcement. An updated version of the ASHEX identification matrix is in the works. The folks at Loyola University Medical Center are helping me complete the push to 1000 clinical isolates, a mark that my dad and I always viewed as the pipe dream benchmark. During this work, I …

As promised, another update to the WIP has been made. ASHEX17XB is now up and running. This version of the WIP represents 105 taxa using data from 971 clinical isolates. Again, the legacy version of ASHEX14X is still available. ASHEX17XB is carrying the development torch forward into the future. I attempted something new with this …

ASHEX16X – Life Carries On

ASHEX16X is now live! This update was built using a stack of biochemical test results my dad (Dr. Paul) had left for me to enter before his passing. Some of you might have also seen that there are now two ASHEX (GNNFB) links. I have decided to freeze ASHEX14X and keep it available. While I …

The Passing of Dr. Paul

Greetings everyone, it is with great sorrow that I have to inform you that my father passed away suddenly on November 29th. He was the best dad anyone could ask for. He was always supportive, knew what to say, and made a one-of-a-kind educator. There are no words that could possibly describe how much he’ll …

News Regarding the AID-Cloud WIPs

Greetings and happy Monday folks! I have some big news to share this afternoon. Less than three years after the deployment of the Web-ID system, the AID-Cloud has recorded its 10,000th identification. This is a big milestone for us that I feel is worth sharing. When I began compiling my dad’s data back in 2004, …

Hello again, Microbiology Folks, Adam here with another update. This is long overdue! Today we rolled out ASHEX Version 14X. The new table is available for download in the Non-Fermenter tab. Also, the ASHEX WIP has already been updated to point at the 14X matrix. As of right now, I have not replaced the 12X …
