Hygiena now covers the entire spectrum of reliable contamination detection, from sample collection to screening of indicator organisms to specific microbial characterisation.
Synbiosis' software module is validated for automatic identification of coliforms in drinking water and disinfected pool water when cultured on Liofilchem and Merck ISO 9308-1 compliant chromogenic media, giving objective reading of plates with retained images for checking at a later stage.
The CP Select is the new generation of the popular Concentrating Pipette and is an automated, rapid bio-concentration device for modern microbiology. The system replaces centrifugation and enrichment methods as a front-end to microbial detection.
Using fluorescence, UV-BioTAG is a quick, reliable way to check whether a positive test result has derived from cross-contamination with QC organisms. Three different L. monocytogenes strains (Serotypes 4b, 1/2a and 1/2b) have now been added to the UV-BioTAG line.
The T-COR 8 can perform molecular tests in an "open" mode, allowing researchers and developers to create new tests on the next generation instrument using the built-in custom protocol creator.
Using IDbyDNA’s Taxonomer software, a DNA search engine that can rapidly identify any organism by its genetic material, the Explify Respiratory detects more than 200 common and rare bacterial, fungal, and viral respiratory pathogens with a single test.
Fully integrated within BD Phoenix panels, the new BD Phoenix CPO detect test enables laboratories to offer a more comprehensive antimicrobial susceptibility test profile while improving laboratory process efficiency.
MERLIN will become Bruker´s Center of Excellence for specialty biochemical and selected, high-value MALDI Biotyper-based antibiotic resistance and susceptibility testing
Best way to recap 48-well and 24-well format sample storage tubes securely and uniformly, ensuring an optimal sealing performance - the Univo Screw Cap Recapper is a hand held, cost effective solution.
Using simple test procedures with no change in sample preparation, Promicol’s cosmetics software provides unique security and simple automated control of the complete assay - capable of running approximately 100 samples in 10 mins.
Study shows Microsart® AMP Mycoplasma Kit has the least variability and highest reproducibility of results compared to two other NAT Mycoplasma kits on the market, with the advantage of chilled rather than frozen reagents.
PENTAX Medical’s DEC™ Duodenoscope obtains CE mark, offering clinicians a unique solution for enhancing infection prevention and improving reprocessing efficiency.
Combining Vermicon's gene probe technology VIT® with Sysmex flow cytometry has led to the Flow VIT® detection system, which delivers highly sensitive detection for industrial microbiology applications.
The new 5,300-square foot center gives customers access to a complete food safety workflow, from raw materials testing to finished-product safety testing, to help find, correct and prevent hazards within the food supply chain.
Based on SERS nanoparticle technology, the CERTUS System is a fast, easy and cost-effective way to detect environmental Listeria in food processing plants, as growth and detection is performed in sealed tubes, it can safely be done on-site.
The International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) has launched its new website. This newly redesigned website was crafted to provide their members and potential
COPAN have installed the 60th WASPLab™, a fully automated specimen processor and work-up system for microbiology, which comprises robotic culture and incubation of specimens, digital imaging and artificial intelligence to assist interpretation and reporting of patient results.
The Legiolert test is based on a bacterial enzyme detection technology that signals the presence of L. pneumophila through utilisation of a substrate present in the Legiolert reagent.
Four novel species of methylotrophs have been added to the NCIMB repository, despite their crucial role in marine carbon cycling, to date only a handful of marine methanol oxidizers and even fewer methane oxidizers, have been isolated and physiologically characterized.
Symmetric M1 is an innovative lateral flow test, utilizing state-of-the-art symmetric technology for the quantitative detection of Aflatoxin M1 in cow, sheep and goat milk.
