Standard culture techniques are commonly used to check quality of dosage forms containing probiotic strains. Unfortunately, these test tube-based methods have significant drawbacks. Undertaking serial sample dilutions for plate counts using test tubes don’t make sense anymore as the effort required is simply out of proportion to the achievable output. The traditional preparation of prefilled test tubes is widely acknowledged to be both time-consuming and expensive, especially if consumable test tubes are used. In addition, repetitively performing manual dilutions is a laborious task prone to operator error if performed over longer periods of time. The Inlabtec TA12 offers labs performing 10-fold sample dilutions, with up to twelve steps, a unique protocol that requires virtually no work preparation or setup time thereby realizing ergonomic, economic and ecological benefits.
