Bio-Rad has introduced a new easy and fast solution to the problem of detecting free DNA in environmental water testing which can lead to overestimation of number of Legionella present in the sample.
Photonic BioSystems are looking for partners to bring to market a portable microbial analyzer for rapid microbial detection in liquids, an easy-to-use membrane filtration system and a portable system for preparing water samples for analysis in the field.
The Priorclave range of research and laboratory autoclaves should appeal to lab managers looking for a highly reliable, energy-efficient steriliser that can provide an extremely low-cost of ownership throughout its life cycle.
Dr. Andrew Pridmore, Head of Microbiology at Don Whitley Scientific discusses how to choose the best spiral plater for your lab and how it will help achieve easier validation and traceability of plating results, plus reduced cost per test on consumables and labour.
Detection and enumeration of C. perfringens from food and water samples can be made easier with CHROMagar™ C.perfringens, a selective media which does not require any agar overlay, C. perfringens appear as easy to count orange colonies.
The Ovation ali-Q incorporates a proprietary intelligent measuring system to precisely measure and dispense aliquots with minimal input from the user. The user simply sets an aliquot volume on the volume-set dial and with a single press of the unique aliquot button dispenses each aliquot.
Quantify bacterial pathogens, e.g. Legionella, within just two hours with the rqmicro lab-on-a-chip technology. The automated and highly specific method is based on the combination of immunomagnetic separation, microfluidics and flow cytometry.
The Tecta-PDS can detect Enterococci in between 2 to 24 hours depending on initial numbers with limit of detection of 1 CFU/100ml. Based on fluorescent detection the platform is ready to use with no need for media preparation and is fully automated.
Take the ‘pain’ out of multichannel pipetting - INTEGRA’s handheld multichannel pipettes and GripTip system allow tips to effortlessly snap onto the pipette and ensures they are always firmly attached, perfectly aligned and easily ejected.
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.
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.
