BOSTON, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Anoxomat(TM) Mark II anaerobic system for the cultivation of anaerobic, microaerophilic, and capnophilic bacteria is an excellent alternative to the use of anaerobic chambers and gas bags currently used in clinical laboratories. The Anoxomat Mark II automatic jar evacuation/replacement system is available from Spiral Biotech, Inc., a subsidiary of Advanced Instruments of Norwood, Massachusetts, USA.
"Because of the way the Anoxomat jar works, I can open it up, take out a sample, and make it anaerobic again very fast," said Dr. Hannah Wexler of the VA Wadsworth Medical Center in Los Angeles.
The Anoxomat Mark II creates microaerophilic and anaerobic conditions
quickly -- delivering significant advantages for clinical laboratory
managers. "Managers report that the Anoxomat delivers significant savings
in terms of consumables, time, effort, and money versus anaerobic jars,
anaerobic glove cabinets, or CO2 incubators," said Anthony Pappas, National
Sales Manager, Advanced Instruments.
Benefits of the Anoxomat Mark II system include:
-- Rapid achievement of anaerobic conditions, reaching anaerobiosis as
quickly as one to three minutes as opposed to one to four hours for gas
-- Repeatable environmental conditions, with gas mixtures remaining
consistent within 0.5 percent of desired values,
-- Substantial cost-of-ownership savings versus the expense of
consumables, pre-reduced media, and ongoing costs involved with
chambers and gas bags,
-- "Walk-away convenience" and ease of use due to the Mark II's new,
intuitive software and touch-screen interface,
-- Automatic quality assurance programming features that ensure an
airtight status, warn of pressure leaks, and bind any residual oxygen
after evacuation cycling, and
-- Unmatched flexibility allowing users to take plates in and out of jars<
