The VOYAGER II is the only pipette where the tip spacing can be changed electronically, spacing can be conveniently changed as you are pipetting using only a single hand.
Complete carcass sampling kit includes sterile template, stomacher bag and biocide free pre-moistened carcass sampling sponge for the recovery of TVC and Enterobacteriaceae (including Salmonella and E.coli) from surfaces of beef, pork, lamb and other meat carcasses.
A recent multi-state outbreak of Salmonella in alfafa sprouts has resulted in several hospitalisations and a product recall.
The VOYAGER II is the only commercially available pipette range where the tip spacing can be changed electronically. using a VOYAGER II pipette the number of transfer steps, compared to using single channel pipettes, can be significantly reduced.
Using MOCON’s GreenLight® technology which can deliver results on TVC and indicator organisms within 1 to 15 hours, Cherney are able to provide a service to food processors helping them get faster identification of the root cause of their product spoilage problems.
The Promicol system is a rapid and reliable method for testing microbial ATP content in a range of food and beverage products, suitable for low, medium or high sample throughput. You are invited to send in samples for the support team to establish the optimum set up for your requirements.
A new interactive, forum discussing food safety, hygiene, methodologies, law, is being launched.
The 3M Petrifilm Lactic Acid Bacteria Count Plate creates a self-contained anaerobic environment get true, accurate anaerobic results using aerobic incubation conditions, providing enhanced recovery of lactic acid bacteria within 48 hours.
Designed for quality control testing in food safety laboratories, UV-BioTAG cultures visibly fluoresce under ultraviolet (UV) light so that a positive test result can be easily traced back to possible cross contamination with a control strain.
New plant pathogen assays use PathSensors’ CANARY® (Cellular Analysis and Notification of Antigen Risks and Yields) biosensor technology to detect the pathogens Phytophthora and Citrus Leprosis.
The new compact C85 laboratory autoclave (footprint just 472 x 500mm) has an 85 litre chamber and operates from a 13A single-phase supply, ideally suited for sterilising taller items such as fermentors and large capacity Erlenmeyer flasks or for large loads.
Increase lab productivity, reduce contamination risk and ensure correct diluent volumes every time, with the Gosselin S-Diuter -1 automated sample dilution suitable for a range of sample sizes from 50 ml. to 400 ml.
The PCR method for STEC (category three pathogens) used at Campden BRI is sensitive enough to detect 2-40 colony forming units per 25g of sample and is absolutely specific for STEC, now accreditated to ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
Using our new design, interactive graphic you can see at a glance some highlights on this year's exhibition stands.
New AOAC-RI PTM Certification gained for Applied Biosystems RapidFinder STEC Detection Workflow for rapid and simultaneous detection of E.coli O157:H7 and the Big Six Shiga toxigenic E.coli (serogroups O26, O45, O103, O111, O121 & O145) in 375g raw beef samples.
Interchangeable pipetting heads for the handheld INTEGRA VIAFLO 96/384 electronic pipettes allows optimised pipetting volumes from 0.5 to 1250 microliters with the purchase of just one base unit.
An inexpensive manual colony counter that is simple to use, flexible enough to read large and small plates and allows results to be easily recorded,
Manual counting of Petri dishes is time consuming and subjective, with the INTERSCIENCE Scan automated colony counter plates can be counted with up to 98 % accuracy, plus data export allows photos of the plate to be retained for later re-checking. Booth #830.
Detecting pathogens in the food industry just got easier. Whether swabbing heavily contaminated surfaces or difficult-to-reach equipment, COPAN has developed an SRK™ product to fit your specific needs. Please visit us at Booth #218.
At the recent Analytica 2016 exhibition INTEGRA launched single and multichannel versions of the EVOLVE range of manual pipettes which have a unique volume change system allowing users to set volumes up to 10x times.
