BakerRuskinn, specialist in anaerobic and modified atmosphere solutions for microbiology applications, has launched a new collection of workstations, the Concept range, designed to deliver the most reliable and consistent results.

The Concept range has been designed to maximise productivity of systemised anaerobic or microaerophilic incubation; bringing together a host of brand new features that will deliver immediate benefits in the laboratory.

The Concept range provides for the best primary isolation rates of anaerobic and microaerophilic cultures. Made up of four models that vary in size, from mid-range workloads to larger batch sizes, the Concept range has been refined to suit the specific needs of a busy laboratory. Featuring BakerRuskinn’s Ezee Sleeve and single plate entry system ({SPES} TM) technology, workstations have been ergonomically designed, allowing direct-hand access into the chamber while enabling the rapid loading and easy insertion/removal of plates.

Additional benefits of the Concept range include: internal HEPA filtration (standard) providing unrivalled clean air to the work area; enhanced environmental control for real-time measurement and display of temperature and humidity levels; an optional removable Pop-Off (TM) front cover for easy set up and cleaning; and, fast interlock purge cycle times.

32 | Tomorrow’s Laboratories


METTLER TOLEDO’s Rainin pipettes and TerraRack pipette tip racks are helping PhD students in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Barcelona, Spain, to study metabolic syndrome.

Student Laia Oliva Lorenzo explained: “Our research involves the study of metabolic syndrome at cellular, tissue and organism levels, looking at the cellular metabolism – particularly adipocytes – of rats, and the effects of different diets and obesity. We analyse plasma and tissue samples, and carry out primary adipocyte culture and stromal cell tests.”

Another student, Cecilia Ho Palma, added: “We use a range of Rainin pipettes and tips for our work; single and multichannel, large and small volumes. The pipettes are

Dan Eagleson, Senior Vice President at BakerRuskinn, said: “This latest range of workstations show how dedicated we are to delivering solutions that are designed to make our customers more productive and better assist them in achieving the results their work requires, within microbiological laboratories across the world.

“We understand the growing pressures on microbiologists and how important it is to have equipment that not only performs, but excels, all day

very light, with a smooth action, and we have a choice of filtered and non-filtered tips, which is especially useful when working in a sterile, RNase-free environment.”

Their colleague, Floriana Rotondo, went on to say: “In the past, we have reused non-recyclable tip boxes, refilling them with non-sterile tips. However, when TerraRacks were launched, we realised they were perfect for us. They are compact, easy to use and sterile, and can be stacked for storage, saving space. Another big advantage is that they can be recycled and so, from an environmental perspective, it was a natural progression to switch over to TerraRacks. We would definitely recommend them to other laboratories, they are so practical.”

and every day; and we’re confident that the Concept range will deliver these results every single time.”

As a pioneer in developing controlled atmosphere and oxygen regulated solutions, BakerRuskinn strives to push the boundaries, once again responding to the needs of users, while bringing the latest in technology and user-driven features to a range of products. concept-0
