Improved Detection of Liquid, Air, and Surface Samples Using InnovaPrep Concentrating Pipette
Click on the Youtube link to hear Dave Albury, CEO InnovaPrep give three examples of how InnovaPrep technologies were applied to improve Public Health outbreak investigations.
- A Meta Mini Study: Improved Pathogen Detection of Air, Surface and Liquid Samples Through Rapid Concentration
A poster presentation given by Dave Alburty, InnovaPrep CEO, at the American Society of Microbiology Biothreats meeting in January 2019. The poster outlines three studies where pathogen detection of air, surface and liquid samples were improved by using the Concentrating Pipette for rapid concentration. The studies were performed by independent labs including CDC NIOSH, NASA JPL, and the USDA.
- Detection of an Avian Lineage Influenza A(H7N2) Virus in Air and Surface Samples at a New York City Feline Quarantine Facility

The InnovaPrep Concentrating Pipette was used to concentrate the H7N2 virus in liquid aerosol samples in this study by the CDC in which the avian flu infects a feline facility and in turn infects an attending veterinarian.
- Comparison of methods to determine the microbial quality of alternative irrigation waters
The InnovaPrep Concentrating Pipette (CP-150) was compared to standard membrane filtration in a recent study by Hsin-Bai Yina of the University of Maryland, Department of Nutrition and Food Science and Jitendra Patel of USDA, ARS, Environmental Microbial and Food Safety Laboratory and published in the Journal of Agriculture Water Management.
"The concentrator method was found to be “superior in detecting virulence genes associated with E. coli O157:H7 in creek water. The concentrator method is simple, highly effective, and rapid in detecting bacterial populations in irrigation water and can be used as an alternative to traditional tedious membrane filtration method.”
- Characterization of Aspergillus fumigatus Isolates from Air and Surfaces of the International Space Station
A new research article published in the ASM mSphere Journal by University of Wisconsin—Madison and the Biotechnology and Planetary Protection Group, at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory describes Microbial Observatory Experiments on the International Space Station (ISS) using a method of recovering surface samples that included the InnovaPrep Concentrating Pipette.
All these publications are available on the InnovaPrep website/technical reports and publications
