To facilitate operational efficiency in food microbiology laboratories, a new range of bagged enrichment media is designed to reduce hands-on preparation time.

The bags contain pre-weighed, ready-to-hydrate, gamma-irradiated enrichment media which eliminates the need for further sterilization. The new Bagged Media are available in a choice of formats and volumes to meet a variety of sample preparation and testing volume needs.

In addition to saving time, the ready-to-fill format of the Thermo Scientific FitBag Enrichment Media may also save space compared with prepared media. They offer the flexibility to be filled when convenient and mixed when required, reducing preparation time to around 10 minutes.

"The QuickBag and FitBag Media Formats are a response to customers who already appreciate the benefits of our large volume Thermo Scientific Dry-Bags Enrichment Media," says Mark Truesdale, senior director, food safety solutions, microbiology, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "By offering these convenient formats in lower volumes, food microbiology laboratories of all sizes can avoid the time-consuming weighing and autoclaving steps, and alleviate the bottlenecks associated with traditional media preparation."

The QuickBag and FitBag Media Formats are available in a choice of volumes: 2.7, 4.5 and 9 liters.

Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a broad selection of high-quality culture media for food and water applications. Our base culture media, supplements and ready-prepared plates and convenience format media are tested for quality and performance before, during, and after manufacturing to make sure the finished product meets the food microbiology laboratory's testing needs.

Key features

  • Cost-effective: no need for weighing of media or sterilization, reducing the burden of media preparation, which frees up resources and equipment. Unprepared FitBag Enrichment Media can be kept for up to 24 months.
  • Flexible: segmented structure allows advanced preparation by filling one segment with deionized water from which FitBag Enrichment Media can be reconstituted within two minutes. Pre-sterilized water may also be added under aseptic conditions.
  • Easy-to-use: fill and dispense with minimum training.
  • Energy saving: gamma irradiated, eliminating the need for costly thermal processing.
  • Safe: eliminate handling of glassware, weighing of culture media, and the need to add supplementary reagents. Empty bags can be disposed of with normal laboratory waste.
  • Quality guaranteed: compliant with ISO 11133 and ISO 7218. Quality certificates are available for every batch, reducing the QC testing needed.
  • Space-saving: conveniently packed in flat boxes, FitBag Enrichment Media takes up relatively little space compared to prepared media and can be made up as required.
