The new Inlabtec Serial Dilutor automates your serial dilutions delivering more reliable, consistent results and now it's at an even lower cost per test, by using pipette straws instead of standard pipette tips.
Antibiotic sensitivity discs Ceftazadime/avibactam 10-4 (EUCAST compatible CZA14C) and Ceftazadime/avibactam 30-20 (CLSI compatible CZA50C), are available now from Mast in cartridge format.
BIolog's GEN III identification database can now identify plant pathogens to the pathovar level. This level of resolution of pathovars, especially within the Pseudomonas and Xanthomonas genera, cannot be easily achieved by current molecular testing technologies.
Trained hospital staff load the drone with a safety box (in which the lab samples are packaged) and launch the drone with a smartphone application. The drone will then flies autonomously along the predefined route to its destination, where the box will be received by another member of staff.

Make your laboratory paperless without changing your existing LIS. The TDBactiLink is middleware that works between existing LIS and automated lab systems such as the BD Kiestra™ or COPAN WASPLabs™ or mass spectrometry instruments.
Linda Everis, microbiologist at Campden BRI discusses what factors to consider when establishing the microbiological shelf life of food and beverages.
New contract testing facilities includes microbial identification via both MicroSEQ®ID (rapid 16S rDNA sequencing) and Vitek®MS (MALDI-TOF).
The RFID in every pipette in the lab is automatically read when placed on the new Rainin SmartStand - the color coded LCD screen automatically highlights whether that pipette is good to go or is near or beyond its service or calibration date.
Non-Salmonella preparations that can be used in-plant to validate processes designed to destroy any Salmonella that may be present in a product. Food matrices now include: nuts & seeds, pet & animal feed, herbs & spices and biscuits & snacks.
For high volume screening of pure culture samples, the Amplidiag® CarbaR+VRE (CE-IVD) is a multiplex PCR test that detects five major and clinically most relevant carbapenemase groups as well as two vancomycin resistance markers directly from pure cultures, with results in a few hours.
For the analysis of shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) in food, the presence of verotoxin is a reliable indicator. Now, R-Biopharm have launched a new more sensitive format of the RIDASCREEN® Verotoxin ELISA test for SLT-1 and SLT-2.
