Efficient & Reliable Automated Filling of 2-Compartment Petri Dishes

Jun 09 2011

Using a MEDIAJET vario Automatic Media Preparation System from Integra, leading Danish healthcare provider, Herlev Hospital, has drastically increased the efficiency and reliability of preparing its 2-compartment agar plates. For many applications, the amount of required agar can be reduced by using two-compartment Petri dishes. However, pouring biplates by hand is time-consuming and inefficient. The MEDIAJET fitted with biplate filling option is proven to offer an efficient and reliable solution for preparing 2-compartment Petri dishes automatically.

Located in Herlev, close to Copenhagen, Herlev Hospital is engaged in providing a range of health care and hospital services to diverse patients. It is principally focused on providing emergency treatment services for acute diseases. The hospital caters to more than 700,000 people across the Ballerup, Gladsaxe, Herlev, Egedal, Lyngby, Rudersdal and capital region areas of Denmark. Anette Banke, Senior Pharmaconomist at Herlev Hospital commented “We have had our MEDIAJET vario with biplate option up and running for two years filling over 70,000 biplates annually. We also
use the MEDIAJET to fill standard 90mm Petri dishes. Our system is running from morning until evening almost every day. We have never experienced any problems with the MEDIAJET and it is by far the most reliable instrument we have ever had for Petri dish filling.”
