preparation with the Dilucup System
LabRobot Products AB has invented, developed and patented a new concept that makes serial dilutions easier, safer, quicker and cost-effective. Using the Dilucup System you simply:
- Add the
requested number of prefilled Dilucup in the Dilushaker.
- Tear off
the protective film
- Add 1 ml
sample to the first Dilucup
- Start the
shaker by moving your hand in front of the optic sensor
- When the
Dilushaker stops, the 1:10 dilution is ready.
- With a
new pipette tip, collect 1 ml from the first cup and release it into the second
cup in order to perform the next dilution (1:100).
- Start the
shaker by moving your hand in front of the optic sensor.
this operation until the final dilution rate is reached.
Some years ago, the common way to dilute microbiological samples 1:10, 1:100, 1:1000, etc. was to prepare own test tubes. These tubes were filled with a diluent (for example Pepton-Salt), sterilized in an autoclave and then stored in a fridge. After use, the tubes needed to be emptied and washed in order to be ready to be filled again. This process was both time consuming and expensive. It could also happen that evaporation during autoclaving was uncontrolled, thus generating volume deviations able to affect the accuracy of the analysis.
The Dilucup System allows a real standardisation of the dilution process and reduces the variability between technicians, usually observed in traditional microbiology.
The Dilushaker III Digital has been developed in order to guaranty a smooth and effective use of Dilucups. Every instrument has the following specifications:
shaking time from 1 to 15 seconds per dilution step
rotation speed (400, 500 or 600 rpm)
tray for easy cleaning
- Ramp with
LED lights to guide the user
direction of the ramp to suit both right- and left-handers
- Adjustable number of dilution steps per sample
- Steering by foot switch or optical sensor
