Advanced Instruments to Present at the AOAC Annual Meeting’s Wiley Award Symposium

NORWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS, U.S.A. – Advanced Instruments will make three scientific presentations at the AOAC Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, September 26-29, 2010, including one at the prestigious Wiley Award Symposium.

“We are honored to be selected as a panelist for this year’s symposium. We congratulate this year’s Harvey W. Wiley Award winner, Dr. David Barbano of Cornell University, for his many outstanding contributions to the analytical sciences field,” said Peter Costas, vice president of sales and marketing at Advanced Instruments.

Evert de Jong of Advanced Instruments’ Delta Instruments subsidiary will join the Wiley Award Symposium’s distinguished panel, which will discuss “Testing for Payment, Quality, and Adulteration: Is It All Hidden in the Mid-IR Spectra?” In his presentation, Mr. de Jong will address cutting-edge applications of mid-infrared milk analysis to predict fatty acid composition and to rapidly screen milk for adulterants using chemometric analysis of mid-infrared spectra. The Wiley Award Symposium will be held on September 27 at 1:30 p.m.

Also on the AOAC Annual Meeting program, Eileen Garry of Advanced Instruments will present a scientific poster in the General Methods session entitled, “Base Freezing Point Values of Untainted Goat, Sheep, and Water Buffalo Milk.” Base freezing point values were used to generate tables for estimating extraneous water in goat, sheep, and water buffalo milk. The presentation will be held on September 28 at 11:30 a.m.

Anthony Pappas will conduct an exhibitor presentation on “AOAC Level Quality Control with Advanced Instruments Products.” The presentation will discuss how Advanced Instruments products support the AOAC’s mission of “worldwide confidence in analytical results.” It will review how Advanced provides a wide-ranging product portfolio allowing users the ability to ensure confident, quality decisions with a breadth of applications in food, dairy, water testing, and more. The presentation will be held on September 28 at noon.

New SomaScope Smart Debuts at AOAC

The new Delta Instruments SomaScope(TM) Smart Somatic Cell Counter will make its first AOAC appearance at the Advanced Instruments exhibit booth #107. The instrument has received approval for sale in the U.S. from the Lab Committee of the National Conference on Interstate Milk Shipments (NCIMS) as the industry’s first somatic cell counter to feature light emitting diodes (LEDs) as its light source. “The SomaScope Smart delivers fast, accurate somatic cell counts with an unprecedented ease of use and low cost of ownership,” said Costas.

In addition, Advanced Instruments will be exhibiting its AutoPlate® Spiral Plating System, a new high-speed, high-performance microbial plater that eliminates serial dilutions, as well as the Advanced® Model 4250 Cryoscope for precise, proven measurement of added water in milk.

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.
