The Inlabtec Serial Diluter: A Success Story!
Wander AG in Neuenegg near Berne, Switzerland has been developing and producing quality food for 150 years and is famous for the milk flavouring product Ovaltine (Ovomaltine), which is one of the 20 most popular Swiss brands and successfully marketed in more than 100 countries (www.wander.ch). The ISO 9001: 2008 / 14001: 2004 and BRC certified company continuously strives for the very highest quality and its very competent quality control organization is responsible for the complete monitoring of all raw materials, processes and end products.
In order to create additional capacity to work through the growing numbers of samples for hygiene monitoring, the microbiology laboratory has purchased an Inlabtec Serial Diluter. This innovative system for performing serial dilutions for plate counts, quickly convinced the laboratory of it’s value due to time savings, the excellent precision and reproducibility and with its ease of use.
Every one of the team agreed: “The Inlabtec Serial Diluter is a great addition to the lab! Preparation of diluent can now be very quickly done in bottles since no test tubes for dilutions need to be prepared anymore. By using the Inlabtec Homogenizer Bags in combination with the Inlabtec Rack it is possible to quickly and cleanly take a sample of the primary dilution, using a standard 1 ml pipette. The setting up and the connection of the diluent solution is also very simple. And once set up, it can be used for up to six weeks without change because the Serial Diluter never comes directly into contact with samples due to the unidirectional dispensing of the sterile diluent and the sterility of the system is reliably maintained by sterile filters."
The Inlabtec Serial Dilution system has impressed the laboratory team of Wander AG with its simplicity, reliability and easy operation. "All in all a great thing, I wouldn’t want to give it away now", said Renate Perler, Laboratory Technician, Wander AG.
