Filter bag with dehydrated media

The integrated media

instaBAG is a ready-to-use filter bag which includes a dehydrated pre-dosed media, allowing a 2-in-1 process: media preparation and sample preparation for microbiological analyses.

  • Filter bag with dehydrated pre-dosed media (just add the sample and sterile and deionized water)
  • Type of dehydrated media: buffered peptone water (can therefore be used to dilute any sample to count all microorganisms)
  • Filter porosity: < 250 microns
  • Filtration is done during blending (no need to wait for sedimentation of debris)
  • Compatible with any laboratory blender
  • Available in BPW 90 mL and 225 mL
  • Storage: 6 to 30 °C

Applications

instaBAG is used in the food industry and public institute research. It adapts itself to every step of sample preparation. instaBAG is used to perform sample dilutions for enumeration of all microorganisms (ISO 6887). It is also used for non-selective pre-enrichment for the detection of Salmonella spp (ISO 6579) and Enterobacteria (ISO 21528-1).

Key features

  • 2 in 1 process: save time spent on time-consuming media preparation
  • In compliance with ISO 11133, ISO 11290-2, ISO 21528, ISO 7218, ISO 6579, ISO 6887 and FDA BAM (Bacteriological Analytical Manual)
  • Advantages (compared to traditional method): Space saving, no wastage(100% used), less garbage(no media bottles thrown), easy and fast preparation, green (no water transported) and long shelf-life.
