Inspissator » TBT-T100IN » Inspissator for the production of tuberculosis culture medium Inspissator for the production of tuberculosis culture medium Convenient and effective system designed to produce large batches of uniform tuberculosis culture medium four to six times per day. Vessels containing culture medium are incubated on a shallow tray which is in contact with water held at a constant temperature of 85ºC within a tank, ensuring that the temperature of the vessels is constant. Inspissation takes 50 minutes at 85ºC. • Robust durable design, with digital temperature control • Standard temperature: 85ºC; temperature range ambient +5ºC to 100ºC • Capacity for up to 156 test tubes (16mm diameter x 150mm long) or 162 universal containers Water temperature under the tray is controlled by a digital heated circukator for accuracy and reproducibility of set temperature. All moving parts are incorporated in the control unit which is easily removed for cleaning. Constant level device maintains required liquid level for optimal operation. year warranty An insect resistant blanket and quilt are placed over the containers to provide thermal insulation and exclude draughts. A fixed over temperature cutout protects users, valuable samples and the workplace. Robust and durable construction – the tray, tank and outer case are made of polished stainless steel. Clear 4 digit display - easy to read from a distance for instant re-assurance. Developed in conjunction with Professor Mitchison of the Royal Postgraduate Medical School of London University and used in a number of tuberculosis laboratories which are assisted by the World Health Organisation (WHO). According to the statistics of the WHO, TB kills more young people and adults than any other infectious disease in the world. It causes more deaths than AIDS and Malaria combined. Although the use of penicillin and antibiotics have caused the decline of this disease in some countries, hot spots of this illness still exist in eastern Europe, south east Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. Numbers that were seemingly beginning to decrease began to rise again in the 1980’s with the emergence of AIDS. Scientists now say that the number of people with TB around the world has reached a ten year high. The very cost effective Grant Inspissator means that it is used extensively in these areas and assists in the diagnosis of this serious disease.
