Medica will provide the launch platform for the first product in the new µPREP™ range: µPREP™ Buffered Peptone Water ISO (BPW). Formulated to ISO 6579, and using Lab M’s proven dehydrated culture media, µPREP™ BPW (ISO) is made ready to use simply by adding water. It provides a rapid, convenient, reliable and cost-effective solution for high throughput Salmonella testing laboratories.
“We are extremely excited to be coming back to Medica, this time with our new µPREP™ product range,” said Managing Director Ian Morris. “It has been an extremely productive 2013 for the Lab M team, both with the launch of µPREP™ and extensions to our Captivate™ range of immunomagnetic separation products.”
The Captivate™ range includes immunomagnetic separation products for the isolation of Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains associated with foodborne infection. This year saw the launch of Captivate™ O121, and Captivate™ O45 is in the final stages of testing ahead of launch early in 2014. This will take the number of E. coli products in the Captivate™ range to eight. The range already covers most of the requirements in pending European regulation and with the addition of Captivate™ O45 will fully meet the ‘Big Six’ testing requirements for meat products in the USA.
