Where Are You Keeping Your Propionibacterium Cultures?

Where Are You Keeping Your Propionibacterium Cultures?
 Are your orthopedic surgeons asking you to keep specimens for 2 weeks to screen for Propionibacterium acnes?

Is your incubator getting overloaded with all those extra orthopedic surgery plates?
Why not take the load off your chamber or CO2 incubator and place them in your O2 incubator?!  Many of your colleagues are using OxyPlates™ to incubate anaerobe specimens in their aerobic incubator!
If incubation space is not an issue, try OxyPRAS Plus® Plate.
All our plates have 24g of media per plate (other plates only have 16g) which prevents media from drying, allows for longer incubation periods and eliminates media tears.  This is great  for labs holding orthopedic surgery specimens for 2 weeks while testing for Propionibacterium acnes.

Our customers also enjoy:
  • Thicker media
  • Extended shelf-life:  (6 months refrigerated or 3 months room temperature)
  • No more expired plates
  • Less frequent ordering
