With no hinged door, Astell Scientific range of circular chamber autoclaves have improved access whilst needing a reduced amount of floor space.
The Priorclave QCS EH100 was the subject of a lot of interest at the recent Medlab exhibition. This 100 litre laboratory autoclave offers increased versatility for labs wanting to sterilise both small and taller than usual items.
Tablet with microplate app and electronic pipette are first Internet of Things devices in the Gilson Connect Family.
A reagent powder is added to a standard 100ml water sample and then incubated for 18 hours in the case of presence/absence determination. Presence of E. coli and total coliforms is indicated by the sample turning yellow, and fluorescence indicating the presence of E. coli.
A new multiplex real-time-RT-PCR test for virus detection in food and bottled water gives simultaneous, qualitative detection and differentiation of Hepatitis A virus, norovirus (from genogroups I & II) with a process control, bacteriophage MS2.
Visit Bio-Rad's new Resource Page: you will find useful information on food, beverage, industrial water and veterinary safety diagnostics. Watch our webinars and training videos and explore our digital library.
Videos tutorials are now available to guide users through Astell’s autoclave functions.
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.
