Create anaerobic, microaerophilic or CO2-enriched environments
Cultivate and isolate specific bacteria and cultures
Convenient and disposable
Simply place an inoculated Petri dish or strip into an appropriate Bio-Bag® pouch, add an anaerobic indicator (Type A systems only) and generator ampules. Heat-seal the pouch (heat-sealer not incuded), then crush the ampules to release the solution. No water is required, and the transparent pouches allow observation without disturbing the environment. Type A: For isolation of anaerobic bacteria. Holds one 100 x 15mm Petri dish or MIC microdilution plate. Anaerobic indicator turns from pink to clear when anaerobiosis has been achieved. Conditions maintained for 96 hours. Includes 25 anaerobic generators, 25 anaerobic indicators, 25 palladium catalyst containers and 25 Type A environmental chambers. Also available with 100 each of all contents. Type A Multi-Plate: Like other Type A pouches, creates anaerobic environments. One pouch will hold three 100 x 15mm multi-plate dishes or two API ID strips. Includes 50 anaerobic generators, 50 anaerobic indicators, 100 palladium catalyst containers and 50 Type A Multi-Plate environmental chambers. Type C: Generates a CO2-enriched aerobic environment. Holds one 100 x 15mm Petri dish or MIC plate. Maintains environment for 48 hours. Includes 50 CO2 gas generators and 50 Type C environmental chambers. Type Cfj: Creates a microaerophilic environment for the growth and isolation of Campylobacter jejuni. Holds one or two 100 x 15mm Petri dishes or MIC plates. Includes 25 microaerophilic generators and 25 Type Cfj environmental chambers. Also available with 100 each of all contents.
