Microsart® @media, TSA (Tryptic Soy Agar), Total count
Microsart® @media are dishes pre-filled with different types of agar medium, sterile-packaged and ready to use. Together with the Microsart® @filter units, they introduce a brand-new agar and membrane transfer concept for microbial limit testing. The innovative, active lid of Microsart® @media allows touch-free membrane transfer from the Microsart® @filter base, and thus reduces the risk of secondary contamination to an absolute minimum.

Microorganisms in liquids are quantified by the membrane filtration method. The advantage of this method is that it allows accurate detection of bacteria, yeasts and molds when low counts in a high sample volume are anticipated. Transferring a membrane filter onto an agar medium is a critical step that can be a source of secondary contamination, especially if tweezers are used. Therefore, it is essential to reduce this risk.
The Microsart® @media product line excels in minimizing the risk of secondary contamination as touch-free membrane transfer rules out membrane manipulation. Moreover, these products accelerate your workflow as just a few work-saving steps are all it takes to use them. Microsart® @media products impressively meet the most stringent quality assurance standards, providing consistently reliable, results and time-saving convenience.
As a result of the combined development , the active lid of @media fits perfectly onto the Microsart® @filter base for an effortless and reliable transfer of a membrane filter onto an agar medium.
In addition, the liftable interior lid provides convenient access to select colonies after incubation for further analysis.
Major Benefits of Microsart® @media
