Compare Baker Ruskinn Bugbox to Anaerobic Jars - True Cost Calculator!
Baker Ruskinn Bugbox anaerobic & microaerophilic workstations are designed specifically to help microbiologists cope with rising workloads and provide the best primary isolation rates.
Read plates easily without exposing them to oxygen. With quick and easy access via the Ezee Sleeve™ gloveless port system and energy-saving lighting that provides perfect illumination, Bugbox is easy to use. Its compact size meets the needs of even the smallest laboratory spaces. Adjustable temperature and humidity provides a precisely controlled environment that is optimal for cell growth, with no dry spots. When adding the ICONIC Gas Mixing System option, which provides accurate and stable control over O2 and CO2, you have the most convenient system for incubation of microaerophilics available.
Compared with anaerobic jars, Bugbox is economical with a lower cost per plate, and more reliable, providing a stable atmosphere.
The Bugbox calculator is aimed at any microbiology laboratory managers or administrators concerned with workflow analysis and looking at ways to increase productivity.
This calculator works out the true costs in materials and labor for Anaerobic or Microaerophilic Jars/Packs and compares it to the costs of buying and running a Baker Ruskinn incubated anaerobic or microaerophilic workstation. Typically, if your lab is running more than 20 anaerobic jars/week (typically 300 individual plates/week), you can see that Bugbox (world’s smallest anaerobic workstation) wins out over anaerobic jars in terms of financial payback with real annual labor savings.
