InnovaPrep has recently developed a new field kit for concentrating bacteria and viruses from large liquid volumes up to 10 liters very rapidly. This manual kit works much like InnovaPrep’s automated concentration instruments which use membrane filtration and a patented wet foam elution technology to rapidly concentrate micro organisms including viruses and bacteria into a very small final volume of clean buffer fluid for rapid detection. It can be used with existing head pressure or a basic pump – no other device is needed. . The final concentrate results to a volume of about 50 mL. In preliminary testing it processed samples at about 1 liter per minute. Read more
InnovaPrep is pleased to announce the award of two new patents applying specifically to processes and consumable components of InnovaPrep’s Concentrating Pipette and ACD-200 Bobcat Air Sampler. The company holds a family of 15 awarded and pending patents surrounding InnovaPrep’s underlying technology termed “Wet Foam Elution” awarded in 2012. The process is utilized in many of the Company’s currently available and pipeline products and greatly improves the way biological samples, especially those containing pathogenic organisms, are collected and prepared for analysis.
