LabRobot's major strengths in science are microbiology, mechanics, software programming and electronics. Combining the experience from several disciplines is a key factor in developing instruments or applications.
Dilucup and Dilushaker are central elements in the design of the applications developed by LabRobot. In the development of the company's innovative serial dilution system, Dilucup, LabRobot combines state-of-the-art mixing of sample and microbiology.
Advantages of the Dilucup system:
• Cost saving
Calculating all costs for producing own dilution tubes the cost saving by using Dilucup will be considerable.
• Time saving
The time it takes to make a dilution using Dilucup is more or less dependent on how fast one can change pipette tips – no more moving of tubes back and forth to the vortex mixer. The calculated timesaving is approximately 10 seconds/tube compared to the traditional method.
• Preventing working injuries
Holding the tube while it shakes on the Vortex mixer and moving it back and forth can cause severe working injuries.
• Increased quality
The dilution process is standardized and consistent, (same time and speed for all dilutions). By using high precision filling machines, gamma sterilization, and an accurate quality control, a higher quality product can be guaranteed. The Dilucups are supplied with a quality certificate.
• Easy to store and long durability
The sealed Dilucup boxes can be stored at normal room temperature during 12 months. When opened, the package with the dilucups will no longer have the original expiring date and must therefore be kept in a fridge no longer than 2 months. The original volume of media in the cups will change if the package is kept open and at normal room temperature.
