Bags contain pre-weighed, ready-to-hydrate, gamma-irradiated enrichment media eliminating the need for further sterilization.
QuickBag and FitBag Media formats are available in volumes of 2.7, 4.5 and 9 litres to meet sample preparation and testing volume needs.
The ready-to-fill format of the Thermo Scientific FitBag Enrichment Media can be filled when convenient and mixed when required, reducing preparation time to around 10 minutes.
QuickBag Enrichment Media are supplied with water pre-filled.
"The QuickBag and FitBag Media Formats are a response to customers who already appreciate the benefits of our large volume Thermo Scientific Dry-Bags Enrichment Media," said Mark Truesdale, senior director, food safety solutions, microbiology at Thermo Fisher Scientific.
"By offering these convenient formats in lower volumes, food microbiology laboratories of all sizes can avoid the time-consuming weighing and autoclaving steps, and alleviate the bottlenecks associated with traditional media preparation."
