TSA Plates That Last for 24 Months!
A study conducted at Battelle’s Biomedical Research Center and recently published in the Journal of Microbiology and Experimentation demonstrated the dramatically extended shelf life and high-temperature durability of filled petri plates packed in NanoLogix-manufactured gas-charged FlatPacks.
The results of the study demonstrated room temperature shelf life of typical petri plates filled with Tryptic Soy Agar (TSA) of at least 24 months and high-temperature durability to 30 days at 60° Centigrade (140° Fahrenheit) for Tryptic Soy, Chocolate, and Blood Agars. The study compared the NanoLogix FlatPacked plates with competitor's plates. The competitor's plates became desiccated and unusable after four months during the long-term shelf life study and desiccated and unusable after two days into the 30-day high temperature phase of the study.
NanoLogix has been running their own room temperature shelf life tests on sample TSA plates over a timeline that predates and extends beyond the results of the peer-reviewed study referred to in this release and has recently surpassed the four-and-a-half-year mark for viable room temperature storage of TSA plates.
The implications for the published results are vast, with many and varied potential uses of extended life ambient temperature storable petri plates in both domestic and international settings.
The FlatPack packaging that enabled these results is currently patented in the United States, the PRC, New Zealand, and South Africa, with EU and other patents pending.
