Fourth-generation disc dispensing
Mast has announced the launch of its new, fourth-generation antibiotic disc dispenser, re-engineered to optimise performance of dispensing antibiotic susceptibility test (AST), combination and identification discs in the Mastdiscs range.
The DiscMaster 4 is available in a convenient six-place format in line with the EUCAST disc-diffusion methodology. Owing to its innovative design, the DiscMaster 4 offers an in-use shelf life of for weeks for all antimicrobials including the carbapenem group. The DiscMaster 4 is presented in a canister with new soft silicone seals, providing improved protection against moisture when used with Mast silica gel capsules (SILICA63). In addition, the automatic ‘lock-off’ functionality indicates when the final disc has been dispensed from a cartridge, permitting users to replenish their supply. [email protected]
