Anoxomat Anaerobic System Offers Clinical Laboratories “Green” Advantages Over Gas-Bag Methods That Generate Hazardous Waste

Advanced Instruments announced that its AnoxomatTM Anaerobic System for the laboratory cultivation of bacteria provides important “green” advantages over gas-bag methods that generate large quantities of hazardous waste.

“The Anoxomat system is an ideal solution for clinical laboratories desiring ‘green’ alternatives that eliminate hazardous waste generation, handling, and cost,” said Anthony Pappas, North American Sales Manager, Advanced Instruments.

In less than 3 minutes, the Anoxomat creates anaerobic and microaerophilic environments in reusable jars with no hazardous gases or materials. By contrast, gas bags require that each consumable plastic bag be disposed of after a single use, and then processed as hazardous waste at considerable trouble and expense.

“We estimate that a lab employing gas bags can generate up to several hundred pounds of hazardous waste per year as it grows bacterial cultures,” said Pappas. “With the Anoxomat, there is no hazardous material produced and the jars can be reused for years and then recycled.”

In addition, there are significant savings in reduced gas costs. “The Anoxomat was an easier operation … on gases alone. In the first year of operation, it probably saved us around $8,000 over gas bags,” said Frank Hollis of Hackensack Medical Center in Hackensack, New Jersey.

The Anoxomat system is highly efficient and cost-effective at cultivating pathogens and attaining growth performance that equals or exceeds that of gas bags. In addition, a built-in quality assurance system tests for leaks before incubation. The system checks whether the catalyst is capable of achieving the desired conditions and warns if there is a threat of failure.

Advanced Instruments’ Anoxomat Mark II Anaerobic System Is Excellent Alternative to Anaerobic Chambers, Gas Bags in Clinical Laboratories

BOSTON, MASS., USA – June 2, 2008 – The Anoxomat™ 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 bags,
  • 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 and return to anaerobic environments in minutes rather than hours.

The Anoxomat system is highly efficient and cost effective at cultivating pathogens and attaining growth performance that easily equals or exceeds that of chambers or gas bags.

“The Anoxomat was an easier operation…on gases alone, in the first year of operation, it probably saved us around $8,000,” said Frank Hollis of Hackensack Medical Center in Hackensack, New Jersey.

Each Anoxomat cycle involves an evacuation phase, followed by replacement using an oxygen-free gas mixture. One cycle achieves 70% to 80% removal of the original atmosphere and gives a microaerophilic environment in one minute. Three cycles achieve an anaerobic atmosphere in less than 3 minutes.

A built-in quality assurance system checks for leaks before incubation. The system also checks whether the catalyst is capable of achieving the desired conditions and warns you if there’s a threat of gas failure.

The resulting gas mixture stays well within 0.5% of the desired value. This high precision, combined with the well-known reproducibility of these conditions, gives microbiologists a strong tool to draw accurate conclusions from repeated findings, Pappas said.

The Anoxomat Mark II Anaerobic System is immediately available from Spiral Biotech. For more information, reach Advanced Instruments or Spiral Biotech on the Web at http://www.aicompanies.com/, or by phone at (800) 554-1620 or +1 (781) 320-9000.

Advanced Instruments Acquires Mart Microbiology B.V.

NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS, USA, November 19, 2007 — Advanced Instruments, Inc., of Norwood, Massachusetts, announced today that it has acquired 100% of the shares of Mart Microbiology B.V. of The Netherlands. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Mart Microbiology manufactures and markets the Anoxomat™ line of instruments. These systems create custom environments for anaerobic bacteria cultivation, a process which requires oxygen-deprived atmospheres. Typical applications include the diagnosis of post-operative infection in hospitals and clinics, plus bacterial cultivation in food microbiology labs.

Anoxomat provides many advantages over traditional methods of cultivating anaerobes. The system can quickly create a precision anaerobic environment that enables reliable and rapid bacteria cultivation. It uses less lab space than traditional “glove box” cabinets and can provide typical returns on investment in less than one year.

Advanced Instruments has been the U.S. distributor of Anoxomat products for more than 6 years and has placed many systems at leading American medical centers. In addition, Mart products are sold in other global regions through an established factory-trained dealer network.

“Mart Microbiology is a perfect fit for our company,” said John Coughlin, President and CEO, Advanced Instruments. “It is the clear market leader in this developing technology and compliments our company’s market presence globally. The experience gained as Anoxomat’s U.S. distributor gives us a high degree of confidence in making this strategic move,” he said.

Advanced Instruments currently operates a facility in The Netherlands and the operations of Mart Microbiology will be integrated into that facility in early 2008.
