iNLABTEC AG reports on how they have helped an accredited certification body for the German feed, agro and food industry to improve microbiological analysis productivity by simplification and acceleration of routine processes.
The company Landwirtschaftliche Kommunikations und Servicegesellschaft (LKS) mbH has, over recent years, seen a marked increase in samples for microbiological and metabolic analyses. During harvest periods the laboratory also required a way of analyzing in a timely manner the additional large numbers of samples.
Using an Inlabtec Serial Dilution System has allowed LKS mbH to create and release the needed analysis capacity by simplifying and speeding up established routine processes without increasing staff numbers or significant investment into complex automation with high maintenance and service costs.
At the beginning of the introduction of the Inlabtec Serial Diluter, laboratory staff was reluctant to change their routine processes. The Serial Diluter however has very quickly become an indispensable tool to cope with the rising numbers of samples and the sample peaks during the harvest periods. The entire dilution process is now much less labour intensive (no more laborious cleaning of test tubes) and time-consuming. All that is required now is a simple press of a button on the Inlabtec Serial Diluter to obtain perfect dilutions and improved accuracy and precision.
