Inlabtec Serial Diluter 21st century alternative to using containers
The Serial Diluter standardizes and simplifies sample dilutions and eliminates the preparation of filled test tubes without the need for consumables which are expensive and produce a lot of plastic waste.
If ordinary disposable containers are already in laboratory use to increase productivity and simplify workflow, additional cost savings for purchasing, transportation, storage and disposal are achieved.
• Unbeatable price for the consumables
• Environmentally and resource friendly
• Simple, fast and comfortable to use
• Swiss Quality guarantees reliability
Serial Dilution Bags are specially developed for microbiological sample dilutions with the Inlabtec Serial Diluter systems for the testing of food, feed, water, cosmetics, probiotics, etc. The bags are optimized for maximum performance with minimal material usage.
Compared to usual disposable containers, the amount of waste produced is at least ten times less as well as the price is up to 90 % lower.
NEW! Serial Diluter UA: The universal Solution
Serial Diluter UA has an integrated Stomacher-like bag mixer (Demo video). Therefore, all known pipette tips, filter tips, straws, etc. can be used without any effect on dilution speed. The working process is 100 % identical to the standard method and complies with EN ISO 6887-1: 2017.
Smart monitoring functions ensure simple and error-free operation. For details: Demo video.
The Serial Diluter UA is universally suitable for all samples in microbiological testing, including viscous, high-fat or sugar-containing samples such as cream, egg yolk, syrup, etc. (Demo video mixing technology with slow motion sequence)
Serial Diluter TA and SA: The original Solution
Add the sample including the pipette tip or straw into the bag, connect the dosing arm for automatic dilution – it's that easy!
The diluent flows through the tip with the sample into the bag, followed by an air blast. The generated liquid vortex and the air turbulences cause a homogeneous sample dilution (see Demo Video). This proven method works optimally with all homogenized and 1:10 diluted food samples, drinks, water etc.
For Serial Diluter TA the maximum speed is achieved with pipette tips that have a wide opening. This allows the diluent to flow more quickly through the tip with the sample (see LO Pipette Tips).
Commissioning is done just by inserting hoses in the pinch valves and a serological pipette into the holder. For liquid volume setting simply place the infrared sensor alongside the scale of the pipette. The aspirated volume is visible and controllable at all times.
In the Library, there are informative demo videos about installation, use, etc.
The Serial Diluter is a real Swiss product for the daily routine. By the exclusive use of quality components, regular preventative maintenance is limited to the yearly change of the sterile filter by the user.
The sterile operation is secured by two syringe filters for sterile system ventilation. With the Serial Diluter TA and SA, the upper part of the pipette tip shields the dispensing nozzle from direct sample contact (see picture above). In the UA, the dispensing nozzle dips into the sterile addition zone of the bags and is never in it when sample mixing is started. In addition, the Serial Diluters cannot aspirate liquid via the dispensing nozzle.

For twelve dilutions in a row, the telescopic dosing arm makes it easy to change between the two rows of six serial dilution bags each.
