Dilucup Cost and Time Saving Dilution System New
Dilucup – a new way of handling serial dilutions of bacteriological samples.
LabRobot Products AB has developed a new concept that makes serial dilutions easier, faster and more cost efficient. Today, the most normal way of diluting a bacteriological sample in 1:10, 1:100, 1:1000 etc., is to prepare own test tubes. These tubes are filled with a diluting media, for example pepton + salt. The tubes are sterilized by using an autoclave and then stored in a refrigerator to prevent bacterial growth. After used, the tubes are cleaned in order to be ready to be filled again. To prepare and fill test tubes for serial dilution is both time consuming and expensive.
The Dilucup Concept
Dilucup is a unique prefilled container with a sterile diluting media used in combination with a special shaker, the Dilushaker. Compared to normal dilution tubes the timesaving is at least 10 seconds/dilution step when using Dilucup. The Dilucup is manufactured under controlled conditions and sterilized by gamma radiation. This guarantees a high quality standard. All Dilucups are supplied with a quality certificate.
