Based on impaction of microorganisms onto culture media in plates, the TRIO.BAS GAS is a high pressure sampler according ISO 8573-7 and ISO 14698 has been specifically developed and produced for microbial monitoring of compressed gas.
For pharmaceutical labs needing to meet regulatory and SOP validation requirements for the MALDI Biotyper and Biotyper CA Systems, Microbiologics have partnered with Bruker to produce co-branded panels to make this testing more efficient and cost effective.
For microbial detection in pharma production, the EviSight™ Compact is a new automated diagnostic solution from bioMérieux, reading culture plates every 30 mins, algorithms analyse each image detecting colonies at an early growth stage (from as small as 30 microns)
For perfectly aligned pipette tips every time - INTEGRA GripTips never loosen, leak or fall off, the special design ensures tips cannot be overloaded and that all tips on the multichannel pipette are fitted to exactly the same height so improving the reproducibility and accuracy of your pipetting.
Solo Containment have supplied six negative pressure inert gas isolators to 4D Pharma PLC, the flexible part of the isolators are disposable, intended for 1 to 2 days use only, so batch to batch cleaning validation is not required.
The hand held Gosselin™ Pipette Controller is ideally suited for pipetting tasks during microbiological sample preparation and testing, the controller incorporates a PTFE membrane filter (0.2 µm and 0.45 µm) together with an autoclavable silicone pipette holder prevents sample contamination issues.
Rainin Pipet-Lite™ XLS pipettes and filter tips are a popular choice for researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute in La Jolla, USA, where they are used for virus work, particularly experiments involving DNA and RNA studies, and it is essential to avoid any potential for contamination.
Hardy Diagnostics will be showcasing an array of products with one word in mind: sterility, range includes the Trio.Bas a triple headed air sampler, TapTight™ Contact Plates which are triple bagged and irradiated to a Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) of 10-6 and the Sterisart® Membrane Filtration System. Booth #218
What do you do when you find an organism in your manufacturing environment? Microbiologics Custom Solutions can help with your next steps - genotypic and phenotypic identification, preparation of isolate in ready-to-use format and storage services. Booth #302
Whether you are attending this year's PDA Micro meeting or just want to keep up to date with the latest in products for the pharma microbiology laboratory, you can see here what's going to be on show.
Charles River Microbial Solutions will be showing their extensive QC microbiology portfolio including Endotoxin testing solutions, Accugenix® Axcess® microbial identification system, Real-Time EM tracking and trending data management and Celsis® rapid microbial detection. Booth#308.
The EviSight™ Compact is an intelligent incubator system providing real time culture media reading combining incubation, intelligent automated detection and enumeration of colonies of bacteria, yeasts and molds in a single system.
Patrick M. Hutchins, PhD – Global Product Manager, TSI Inc. reviews laser induced fluorescence (LIF) as an alternative method for real-time detection of airborne microorganisms, its benefits, current methods, applications in aseptic manufacturing, and the regulatory outlook.
Available in 4-, 6-, 8- and 12-channel versions, INTEGRA's VOYAGER II pipettes are the only commercially available pipette range where the tip spacing can be changed electronically, up to 40 individual custom programs can be saved making often repeated pipetting protocols even easier to implement.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech launches two single-use Sartocon® Loop Assemblies with Integrated Polyethersulfone (PESU) Membrane Assemblies saving up to 60 percent on processing time and offer a safe approach to ultrafiltration of biologics and vaccines
Priorclave will be exhibiting their range of low energy laboratory autoclaves at Medica 2016, in Dusseldorf 14th - 17th November, an autoclave with a clear sided panel will allow stand visitors to see inside and view the clean, structured lines of the build.
Following a partnership agreement, Charles River customers can access PathoQuest’s NGS-based testing solution, which identifies viral contaminants in biological products via a single comprehensive test, overcoming limitations of current viral safety testing methods.
The new Steritest™ Symbio Pump accessories enhance safety and convenience during sample handling, filtration, waste management, transport and incubation in any setting including compact environments such as laminar flow hoods and isolators.
Microbiology experts will be meeting in London 18 - 19th Jan 2017 to discuss topics such as contamination, endotoxins, quality assurance and control, environmental monitoring, rapid microbiology methods and much more.
Calibration and servicing of the SAS microbial air samplers can be done in Cherwell's own workshop or at customer facilities, which has proved an increasingly popular option as downtime its kept to the absolute minimum.
