Smart Tools for Microbiological Quality Control
As a QC lab technician, you play a crucial role in the pharmaceutical manufacturing process. We understand that safety and compliance are critical in your sampling, detection, and microbiological quantification processes.
Our microbiological QC portfolio is designed to give you the best tools to meet the challenges you face day to day. Our tools are fit-for-purpose, easy-to-use, and efficient.
We offer smart solutions no one else can offer.
Aseptic sampling out of a closed, sterile system: due to the Sterisart® Septum technology.
Agar-free, continuous air monitoring: thanks to MD8 Airscan® with unique gelatin membrane filters.
Our validated bacterial test kits provide rapid bacterial identification in only 3 hours.
Forceps-free, effortless membrane transfer per “magic lid”: with Microsart® @filter and Microsart® @media.
Media Preparation and Filling
Sterile filter media and aseptically fill bottles in one simple step without going into the biosafety cabinet or laminar flow hood with MYCAP® Bottle Closure Systems.
How to Avoid Contamination in Pipetting
Preventing contamination in pipetting is paramount to achieving reliable results. It requires identification of the potential contamination mechanisms in order that they can all be addressed.
This paper addresses the three contamination types that originate from pipetting, pipette-to-sample contamination, sample-to-pipette contamination, and sample-to-sample contamination and discusses strategies for avoiding each.
How to Pipette PCR Master Mix for Increased Accuracy in qPCR Results
Pipetting technique can influence qPCR assay results. PCR Master mix is routinely used during qPCR set-up but can be challenging to pipette accurately. In this study, we determined the best pipetting technique for pipetting Master mix in qPCR assays. We tested forward and reverse pipetting techniques, the type of pipette tips, pre-wetting of the pipette tip, and the use of electronic pipettes and identified best practices for obtaining accurate qPCR results.
