µPREP™ Buffered Peptone Water (ISO)

Lab M’s new µPREP™ BPW (ISO) delivers convenient, cost-effective media preparation in a robust format

Lab M’s new µPREP™ Buffered Peptone Water ISO (BPW) is the first product in a brand new line of bagged, sterile dehydrated microbiological culture media that are made ready to use simply by adding water.


Using Lab M’s proven dehydrated culture media formulations, µPREP™ is designed primarily for high throughput laboratories where speed, convenience, reliability and cost-effectiveness are high priorities, and where storage space is often at a premium. µPREP™ BPW (ISO) is supplied sterile in boxes of 10 highly robust bags, each of which makes 20 litres of finished medium.


Simply attach a standard laboratory deionised or reverse osmosis water supply, via the Lab M filter accessory, to the bag. The medium reconstitutes rapidly, requires no additional sterilisation and is ready to dispense and use in minutes.


All Lab M media are manufactured in powdered form, ensuring rapid cold dissolution and avoiding any of the reconstitution issues that can arise with granulated media, making them ideally suited for use in the µPREP™ format. Robust double-skinned bag construction and a dual port system ensure that leakage is not an issue, and the µPREP™ system has performed well both in-house and in rigorous field trials.


For anyone with bulk media needs, µPREP™ BPW (ISO) takes up minimal storage space, offers quick, convenient reconstitution with no need to autoclave and preparation does not require skilled personnel.
