Cost and Process Optimisation With iNLABTEC Serial Diluter

The current economic situation requires adjustments to existing business processes due to massive price increases for materials and transportation, major problems in supply chains and shortages of qualified personnel. This is challenging and risky when internal human resources are fully engaged in day-to-day business.

However, the iNLABTEC Serial Diluter offers an innovative solution to these business challenges when preparing serial dilutions for microbial counts in food samples.

Since its market launch, the innovative Inlabtec Serial Diluter has convinced leading food testing laboratories worldwide to adopt this compact, semi-automatic instrument that can be installed at any existing workstation. Commissioning and connecting the diluent takes just a few seconds. After a short familiarization period in routine operation, sample dilutions are simple and fast: a six-fold serial sample dilution in the economical and more ecological Serial Dilution Bags is completed in just one minute.

At the same time, the convenient work process reduces the physical strain and fatigue of lab staff. The iNLABTEC Serial Diluter thus creates optimal conditions for successfully achieving productivity goals whilst delivering higher quality results. The manual skills needed and employee training is minimal, as the demanding handling of test tubes and their preparation and quality control is completely eliminated. This can help broaden the recruitment pool and curb staff shortages.

The low-cost Serial Dilution Bags are made from the least amount of plastic possible and are the world’s most resource-efficient vessels that can be used for serial dilutions. For comparison: The amount of plastic in a 0.5 liter beverage bottle is enough for 100 dilutions! A cardboard box with 2’000 bags weighs only 660 g, and additional cost and sustainability benefits are realized during transport, storage and disposal after use.

A fair device price and up to ten times lower costs than before ensure rapid amortization and increased profits without undesirable compromises to the disadvantage of employees and the environment.
