Phoenix Biomedical Products was founded in 1980 in Ontario, Canada expressly to manufacture premium quality sterile Petri dishes. Today, Phoenix is the industry's innovator and supplier of choice for medical testing, biotechnology and research industries in over 30 countries.
In 2013, the company designed and built a brand-new manufacturing plant in Murcia, Spain. In this ultra-clean, microbiologically controlled facility, with its ISO Class 5 cleanrooms, Phoenix Biomedical is capable of producing 200 million plates per year.
Among our extensive Petri dish lines is the innovative, environmentally-preferable STAR™DISH. The patented technology used in its manufacture allows 20-35% savings in the raw material without sacrificing the quality or the mechanical performance of the dishes, an excellent combination for obtaining robust and flat dishes.
In October 2012, a novel "Space & Media Saver" 95x13.5mm/90x13.5mm had been added to our Petri dish lines. The design offers savings in the amount of media used per plate as well as savings in space during incubation, storage and shipping.
In December 2012, we applied for a patent for our newest dual-use Contact Plate, ContactClik™featuring a break-through technology that allows the plate to be easily locked and reopened. The same innovative technology has been incorporated in our PetriClik™ dual-use locking 100x15mm/90x15mm Petri dish and other sizes. Both the ContactClik™ and PetriClik™ are already being produced on a large scale.
All new designs, "Space & Media Saver", ContactClik™ and PetriClik™ incorporate a pre-treated surface ready for printing a barcode, lot number and other information.
