Effortless Microbial Dilutions with Inlabtec’s Advanced Technology
Serial dilutions are a crucial step in microbiological analysis, allowing enumeration of viable microorganisms through concentration reduction. The traditional serial dilution method involves using capped glass test tubes filled with 9 ml of sterile diluent, where 1 ml of the sample is pipetted into the first tube, mixed, and then transferred to the next, creating a decimal dilution series.
The widely used serial dilution method needing prefilled glass test tubes offers a well-established and dependable option. However, the manual process can be time-consuming and labor-intensive, involving the careful preparation of filled, sterile test tubes, as well as proper handling and mixing techniques to ensure reliable dilutions for accurate results..

Revolutionizing the Lab: Traditional vs. Inlabtec’s Innovative Approach
|Working Step||Traditional Method||Inlabtec Method|
|Preparations for a serial dilution||Have filled test tubes ready at the workplace. Place the test tubes required for a dilution series clearly arranged in a separate rack.||Connect diluent to the Serial Diluter, insert bags and fill the first one.|
|Transfer 1 ml sample into 9 ml diluent||Take a test tube, remove the cap, pipette the sample into the test tube and close the test tube again.||Pipette the sample into the bag.|
|Mix sample and diluent||Press the test tube with the sample onto the Vortexer for totally > 5 seconds. Alternate between pressing and releasing to create turbulence in the test tube for a homogenous mixture.||Move the dosing lever to the right.|
|Transfer 1 ml diluted sample into Petri dish and/ or perform next dilution step||Uncap the test tube again and pipette from the dilution into the Petri dishes and/or into a next test tube to perform a further dilution. Store used test tubes separately from unused test tubes to prevent errors due to mix-ups.||Pipette from the dilution into Petri dishes and/or into next bag to perform a further dilution.|
