Microbiology control testing simplified with one-step method

Stratix Labs has unveiled Instant Inoculator QC microorganisms, a ready-to-use product that delivers reference microorganisms to solid media with a simple one-step method.

Each device comes individually sealed with authentic reference microorganisms coated and preserved on the applicator region.

Using a patent-pending technology, the Instant Inoculator directly transfers isolated colonies to solid media. It requires no preparation, no rehydration, and no liquid handling. Simply spread the Instant Inoculator on solid media for 5-10 seconds to deliver an ideal spread of isolated colonies.

"By eliminating all prep work, including rehydration and liquid handling steps, Instant Inoculator is positioned as the easiest and simplest way to work with reference microorganisms. And with its one-step direct transfer method, it reduces opportunity for error and contamination in microbiology testing workflows," said Stratix Labs CEO Mark Mulvahill.

"We set out to create a product that simplifies microbiology testing across industries. As a company founded by microbiologists, we know that increasing efficiency and reducing risk of error is important. With Instant Inoculator we’ve set the bar for the easiest way to use reference microorganisms in microbiology applications," said Mulvahill.

Instant Inoculator is designed for use with solid media, including traditional agar plates as well as alternative systems such as dry sheet media for culturing microorganisms. Various reference strains are available in the Instant Inoculator format and Stratix Labs is rapidly expanding the list of available strains. Stratix Labs invites requests for new reference strains or environmental isolates in the Instant Inoculator format.

Stratix Labs is a biotechnology company based out of St. Paul, Minnesota. Using a proprietary technology for preserving microorganisms, Stratix Labs creates innovative products that advance microbiology in research, development, and quality control applications.
