easySpiral Dilute and Scan 1200 : a saving of 24 000€ consumables per year

Interview with Mrs Chantal PATROM, Head of Microbiology Moulin de la Marche Laboratory:

Why did you feel the need in an automatic plater?
« We analyze about 9 500 samples per year on which we count mesophilic flora at 30 ° C. We wanted to save on
consumables. »

How did easySpiral Dilute® change your work?
« The easySpiral Dilute and the Scan 1200 save us 24 000 € consumables per year, compared to the film
growing method that we used before the acquisition of these devices, and that only for the analyzes of the mesophilic flora at 30 ° C.
In 10 months, we have returned our investment. With the easySpiral Dilute we can earn money and time for subculturing. The Scan 1200 allowed us to save valuable time on Petri dishes reading. »

Why did you choose Interscience?
« Demonstration and free loan allowed us to test the equipment before purchase. We are really satisfied with
easySpiral Dilute and Scan 1200, just as we are satisfied with Interscience follow-up with the installation of the equipment. »
