Spiral Biotech Introduces New Autoplate Spiral Plating System to Boost Processing Speed, Efficiency in Microbiology Labs

NORWOOD, MASS. – May 18, 2009 – Spiral Biotech, an Advanced Instruments company, introduced its new Autoplate® Spiral Plating System – which delivers faster cycle times, a touch screen display, and self-cleaning features that boost processing speed and efficiency in microbiology laboratories – at The American Society for Microbiology’s (ASM) 2009 General Meeting.

“The introduction of the new Autoplate represents a major advancement in spiral plating technology,” said Anthony Pappas, National Sales Manager, Advanced Instruments (www.aicompanies.com).

“The new Autoplate features 50 percent faster cycle times – 30 seconds as opposed to one minute – a new Windows® CE-based touch screen display, and an expanded range of analysis that includes two new spiral plating modes. The new system also introduces a revolutionary self-cleaning feature that is very fast, very thorough, and ensures no sample-to-sample contamination,” he said.

“Altogether, the new Autoplate drives spiral plating technology a generational leap forward,” Pappas said.

The new Autoplate deposits microbial suspensions without the need for most serial dilutions, thus increasing efficiency in the microbiology laboratory. Labor and material costs associated with sample preparation and manual dilution are reduced by 75 percent. Moreover, by eliminating the variability inherent in manual procedures, Autoplate delivers both a higher degree of accuracy and repeatability.

Spiral Biotech’s Autoplate technology is ideal for any laboratory that uses microbial concentration samples greater than 1,000 cfu/g or cfu/ml, or any application where counts are high and standardization and reproducibility are key.

Spiral Biotech unveiled the new Autoplate at the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) 2009 General Meeting. For more information, visit Spiral Biotech at the 2009 ASM General Meeting in Philadelphia, May 17-21, in exhibit number 133.

Spiral Biotech to Highlight Innovative Microbial Solutions at Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy

NORWOOD, MASS. – September 17, 2007 – Spiral Biotech (www.spiralbiotech.com), will feature a suite of leading, innovative microbial solutions at the 2007 Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC).

At the conference, Spiral Biotech will highlight the Spiral Gradient Endpoint (SGE) software for antimicrobial susceptibility determination, Color QCount for rapid bacteria colony counting, and the Autoplate 4000 spiral plater for microbial evaluation.

Visit Spiral Biotech at the Conference in Booth #650 for more information about:

  • The SGE™ software includes features that enable more flexible, sensitive, and accurate minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) determination. The SGE software calculates the precise concentration of compound at the endpoint of growth for each microbe and removes the limits of two-fold values, saving time and materials. SGE’s intuitive interface enables the user to easily print or export data into spreadsheet format, providing a diagram of the plate image as data is entered. SGE calculates precise MIC and gives two-fold equivalents, saves user-defined stock concentrations and plate layouts for future use, and provides convenient user-defined libraries of microbes and antimicrobials. Available from Spiral Biotech at www.aicompanies.com/SBI_products/sge/sge.htm.
  • The Color QCount® illuminates the way for faster, easier, and more accurate automated microbial enumeration. Utilizing the latest digital FireWire™ technology, the Color QCount allows users to capture full color sample images –while its patented technology breaks through the limitations of clustered colonies to deliver sharp, error-free plate counts. The Color QCount’s ease of use allows technicians to read plates quickly and efficiently — resulting in an extraordinary savings of time that can now be better allocated to the performance of other important responsibilities. Available from Spiral Biotech at www.aicompanies.com/SBI_products/cQcount/cqcount.htm.
  • The Autoplate® 4000 uses an innovative microprocessor controlled spiral plating technology. Following an AOAC-approved method (# 977.27), the Autoplate 4000 plates microbial suspensions without the need for serial dilutions. This results in greater sample repeatability and a considerable savings in time, labor, and disposable materials, when compared to conventional plating methods. Designed to help laboratory technicians utilize time and materials more effectively, the Autoplate 4000 is ideal for any laboratory that uses microbial concentration samples greater than 1,000 cfu/g or cfu/ml or any application where counts are high and standardization and reproducibility are key. Available from Spiral Biotech at www.aicompanies.com/SBI_products/ap4000/ap4000.htm.
