White Paper Details New Techniques for Isolating, Identifying Anaerobic Bacteria and Organisms

NORWOOD, Mass., April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- A new, free white paper titled "Effectively Culturing Anaerobic Bacteria" is now available from Spiral Biotech, Inc. at: www.aicompanies.com/anoxomat. The white paper details new techniques for isolating and identifying anaerobic bacteria in organisms.

To obtain clinical diagnoses and safeguard patient health, modern clinical laboratories must ensure accurate, timely isolation and identification of anaerobic bacteria and related organisms. While traditional approaches have centered on the use of anaerobic chambers or gas bags, a new technology utilizing automatic evacuation/replacement methodology offers attractive advantages for laboratory managers.

Applicable for managers in modern clinical and industrial laboratories, this white paper compares three forms of anaerobic bacteria culturing technologies and explores how hospital and research laboratories are using the new technology to quickly create ideal conditions for the growth of anaerobic organisms.

This paper will be of interest to those in clinical applications such as hospitals, universities, and public health facilities and industrial applications including food and beverage, water supply, and pharmaceutical labs.
