Microbiological testing: set yourself up for success
Different microbiological testing applications have different target microorganisms; using a membrane filter that is both suitable for your target and of high quality is critical to success. Use this guide to determine the right membrane for your application.
Whether your lab runs a few microbiological tests a day, or into the hundreds, your selection of membrane filters and testing equipment can greatly affect efficiency, accuracy and the reliability of your results.
The membrane filter is central, but don’t forget the hardware! In high-throughput labs, for example, a sturdy membrane dispenser can save you time, and make your lab-life easier. Manifolds, funnels, even connectors — all can contribute to the smooth running of your microbiology lab.
