Safety in Microbial Analytics and Diagnostics
The detection of bacteria that are pathogenic to humans such as E.coli always places particular demands on laboratory processes. Safety is the key factor here.
This means the safety of the employees who handle and analyze the samples as well as safe and reliable results. After all, the treatment of patients depends on the results, therefore utmost care must be taken.
Suppliers such as Eppendorf offer a range of laboratory products which provide safety. Aerosol-tight centrifuge lids and filter tips with 2-phase contamination protection prevent the contamination of work equipment and personnel in laboratories. Consumables that are certified to be free from bacterial DNA and do not give off any PCR-inhibitors or any other interfering substances also help to obtain clear, correct results.
