Application Note: Automated Growth Monitoring of Microaerophilic Organisms in the Infinite® 200 PRO Reader with Gas Control Module
11 August 2015

Growth analysis of micro-organisms is a fundamental part of many research areas yet can be highly time consuming and labor-intensive. Tecan have designed the Gas Control Module in conjunction with the Infinite 200 Pro Reader which allows walk-away growth monitoring through the controlled measurement chamber which provides all essential growth conditions, eliminating the need for transfer between incubators and readers and manual intervention. This application note describes the use of these systems in the analysis of growth of the human pathogen and class-I carcinogen, Helicobacter pylori, over a 28 hour period.
