Accurate results at optimal cost are key to routine microbial testing for quality and hygiene control. That's why we believe that serial dilutions for plate counts using test tubes don’t make sense nowadays. The efforts and costs required are simply out of proportion to the achievable output. Further, repetitively performing dilutions manually cannot be standardized reliably and is a laborious task prone to operator error if performed over longer periods of time.
Simply add the sample for dilution into an Inlabtec dilution bag and press the button for diluent dispensing and mixing. This alternative sample dilution process eliminates the need for pre-filled test tubes, for manual mixing and for precise sample dispensing with the pipette.

Sample Preparation method using the Inlabtec Serial Diluter receives UKAS Accreditation
August 28, 2018
Data collected by 20/30 Labs Ltd., a leading accredited UK microbiological testing laboratory, demonstrate that the test tube technique and the Inlabtec Serial Diluter can be considered as quantitatively identical methods.
Moreover, the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) reviewed the validation data and approved the use of the Inlabtec serial diluter as part of the accredited TVC sample processing by 20/30 Labs. News
