Innovative ideas are always encouraged by the researchers. A successful innovation can improve the clinical diagnostics in near future. Here we are Introducing a new product with its novelty in diagnostic usage. Name of the product is Zone Measurable Petridish. Patent application number from the patent office for this product is 202141008624 dated 1.3.2021. This is a glass petridish with zones of varying diameter is imprinted so that we can measure the zone of inhibition without a scale. Aim of the study is toassess the utility of the new product in routine diagnostic work. Materials & Method: Prototype was prepared and used it for routine Antibiotic susceptibility testing. This was shown and explained to Faculties, Technicians and Students. Then its utility in Microbiology Lab was assessed using a questionnaire validated by experts. Five point Likerts scale was used to assess the importance of interpretation in antimicrobial susceptibility testing and also about the utility of the new product. Results: All participants were strongly agree that the use of this new product in concern with its feasibility, Novelty and for accurate measurement of inhibition zone when compared to currently available petridish. Conclusion: The new product has many advantages over the currently using petridish. It is Very Easy to measure zone of inhibition. Accurate measurement can be achieved duringreporting. It will help to avoid individual variation in measuring the zone size.
