Flexible instrument that extends the ability to grow certain microbes.
Application Area: Cultivation of Bacteria
"This a pretty unique piece of equipment at the time of purchase, it circumvents the need for gas packs and allows for the cultivation of bacteria that can be sensitive to environmental conditions. Our use is for oral microbes, and the facility allows us to generate microaerophilic and anaerobic conditions within the jar almost immediately after sampling plaque. It is a logical and versatile adaptation for a lab that has a small footprint and works well alongside the anaerobic workstation. I can also strongly recommend the aftercare from the company, it has proved cost effective for a small research group like ours."
