The concept of filter stomacher bags is not new but cost has limited their routine use..... until now!!!
The Pyxon range of Homogeniser bags are designed to overcome a range of problems faced in a busy microbiology laboratory. Standard stomacher bags produce a supernatant that can be full of food particles, clogging pipettes and adding artefacts that can easily be confused with colonies when counting.
Add your diluent and sample to one side and after homogenising, pipette out a particle free filtrate from the other side. The pull down tab allows a standard pipettor to take the sample from the bag without risk of contaminating the pipettor barrel.
Pyxon Filter Bag advantages:
- Removes food particles
- Clearer and easy to read plates
- No clogging of pipettes
- Ideal for spiral plates
- Quality 3 weld joint construction
- Quick, simple and safe
- Inbuilt internal filter which divides the bag in two which avoids pipette cross contamination
