The Institut Curie, Paris, France, is a world leader in oncology research. Research work at the Institut Curie requires petri dishes for a wide range of applications including growing bacteria, yeasts and moulds, making it necessary to regularly produce 10 to 12 different types of media in varying quantities. The assurance of reliable, high throughput production of these petri dishes which are free of any contamination is critical to ongoing research work.
The Institut Curie has reported how it has standardised using MEDIACLAVE media preparation and MEDIAJET automated petri dish filling systems from INTEGRA Biosciences to prepare its petri dishes.
She added “We use vented Petri dishes, which work perfectly with the MEDIAJET automated petri dish filling system. I should also say that, as well as trusting the equipment, I have full confidence in the after-sales service provided by INTEGRA. When you need them, INTEGRA have always been very responsive. I recommend MEDIAJET and MEDIACLAVE for high throughput preparation of top quality media filled petri dishes without hesitation”.
