Culti-Loops are stabilised micro-organisms, supplied ready to use in disposable bacteriological loops. Each loop is individually foil wrapped and, once removed, can be used to streak up to five agar plates.
Quanti-Cult and Quanti-Cult Plus® are preserved micro-organisms designed to deliver a specific range of colony forming units (CFU). Supplied in plastic vials, once rehydrated, they are ready to use immediately, eliminating the need for a growth period or serial dilutions. Quanti-Cult vials contain a single inoculum of less than 100 CFU in 0.3ml, whereas Quanti-Cult Plus vials deliver less than 100 CFU in 0.1ml, with each vial containing 10 inocula.
Culti-Loops and Quanti-Cult products are ideal for use in clinical, food, pharmaceutical, research and industrial applications for QC procedures, including: performance testing and method validation; microbial limit testing; bioburden testing; bacteriostasis and fungistasis testing; and growth promotion testing. They can also be used in the maintenance of stock cultures.
