The Concentrating Pipette is an automated, rapid bio- concentration device for modern microbiology. The system replaces the older methods including centrifugation and enrichment as a front-end to microbial detection. It is highly efficient and effective for bacteria, parasites, molds, fungal spores and fragments, whole cells and viruses.The one-pass method works by filtration through its high- flow single-use pipette tips to remove micro-organisms from the fluid sample matrix. Once the micro-organisms are captured, the instant and automated wet foam elution process recovers and delivers the micro-organisms into a microliter volume of clean buffer ready for analysis by modern or classical methods.
