NORWOOD, Mass. — January 23, 2008 – A free white paper for clinical laboratory managers titled: “Effectively Isolating Anaerobic Bacteria” is now available from Spiral Biotech, Inc. at www.aicompanies.com/anoxomat.
As hospital infection rates continue to increase sharply, clinicians are faced with the ongoing challenge of quickly determining the presence or absence of a wide array of pathogens. As a result, clinical laboratories face growing pressure to quickly and reliably culture a variety of organisms from patient specimens. Correctly diagnosing and safeguarding patient health requires accurate, timely isolation and identification of anaerobic bacteria and related organisms.
The free, whitepaper, “Effectively Isolating Anaerobic Bacteria,” discusses anaerobic chambers and gas bags as the traditional applications used in the isolation and testing of anaerobic bacteria and related organisms as well as explores a third, newer technology – the Anoxomat anaerobic system.
The paper details comparative studies demonstrating the benefits of the use of the Anoxomat anaerobic system versus anaerobic chambers and gas bags in clinical laboratories in terms of saving consumables, costs, time, and effort for clinical laboratory management and their staff.
