SphereFlash@ is the new automatic colony counter from IUL that automatically adjusts all parameters depending on the colony and agar type so no user input is required it also eliminates any reflections that may interfere with image processing.
Get INTEGRA to demonstrate in your own lab how you can achieve better multichannel pipetting results, avoid repetitive strain injuries and speed up your working process.
Consortium has secured £933k in funding from Innovate UK for work on a novel class of drugs based on bacteriocins – potent toxins produced by bacteria to kill closely-related strains.
Priorclave North America customers gain notable savings in reduced energy, water, and maintenance costs by adopting a proper research-grade laboratory autoclave.
Recent study shows that CHROMagar media has no influence on microbial identification by MALDI-TOF MS and that both technologies can be used together for identification of microorganisms.
mastdiscs® combi Carba plus (D73C) can be used in conjunction with mastdiscs® ID range – CAT™ID (D71C), to confirm and differentiate enzymes expressed by CPE once screened positive for carbapenemase activity.
The APAS® is a breakthrough artificial intelligence technology for the automated imaging, image analysis, interpretation and reporting of growth on microbiology culture plates after incubation.
The ePlex RP Panel from GenMark Diagnostics detects over 20 viral and bacterial pathogens that commonly cause upper respiratory infections.
The three-position nozzle controls the dispensing of liquids, the removal of air in the system to avoid liquid loss, and includes an anti-drip safety feature that returns liquid to the bottle.
