Your diluent ready in minutes!
instaBAG is a filter bag which includes a dehydrated pre-dosed media, allowing a 2-in-1 process. Skip the time-consuming media preparation.
1. Place the sample in instaBAG
2. Add sterile and purified water
3. Blend the instaBAG with the BagMixer
The filtrate is ready to be pipetted
Just add water
Ready-to-use bag with pre-dosed dehydrated media in the bag. Just add the sample and sterile and purified water. The diluent dissolves itself during blending.
The dehydrated media is buffered peptone water. instaBAG can therefore be used to dilute any sample to count all microorganisms.
instaBAG is available in BPW 90 mL and 225 mL.
The advantages of a filter bag
Filtration is done during blending. There is no need to wait for sedimentation of the debris to pipet.
The filtrate is particle-free, so there is no debris on the Petri dish. Reading is thus facilitated and the results more accurate.
No blocked pipet from particles
instaBAG is used in the food industry and public institute research. It adapts itself to every step of sample preparation. instaBAG is used to perform sample dilutions for enumeration of all microorganisms (ISO 6887). It is also used for non-selective pre-enrichment for the detection of Salmonella spp (ISO 6579) and Enterobacteria (ISO 21528-1).
