Growth of Campylobacter using BMG LABTECH’s FLUOstar Omega equipped with ACU
24 Sep 2011
Growth of the fastidious microorganism Campylobacter jejuni was monitored using a FLUOstar Omega microplate reader equipped with the Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU). With the ACU it was possible to independently control the oxygen to 7 % and the carbon dioxide to 10 %. Growth curves obtained in 96-well microplates were comparable to conventional growth measurements where samples are taken and measured in cuvettes.
