Sterile single-use filter units and touch-free membrane transfer with Microsart® @filter and Microsart® @media

During the membrane transfer method for quantifying microbes, transferring the membrane filter onto an agar medium is a critical step that can be a source of secondary contamination and thus lead to false-positive results. Our Microsart® @filter and Microsart® @media system has an integrated adhesive ring in the lid, which effortlessly affixes the membrane and positions it correctly on the agar plate. With a turn, it’s locked and ready to incubate. 

No forceps, no forces – it’s the “Magic Lid” that does the trick!
