Our products

Product category: Bacteriology


A ready-to-use system designed to simplify the storage and retrieval of bacterial and fungal cultures. Comprised of a unique cryovial system incorporating treated beads and a special cryopreservative solution Microbank™ provides a more reliable means of maintaining important cultures than repetitive subculture, which can result in contaminated cultures, lost organisms or changed characteristics. The specially formulated preservative ensures longer survival of fastidious cultures and higher quantitative recoveries. Each 2.0 ml Microbank™ vial contains approximately 25 beads, providing repeated cultures of the original organism using a simple procedure. Extensive, proven performance reference data is available on request in the ""Microbank™ World Wide Performance Portfolio"".

Prolex™ Latex Agglutination Kits

The range of Prolex™ Latex Agglutination Systems manufactured by Pro-Lab Diagnostics currently presents a range of rapid latex agglutination systems for Streptococci, Staphlylococci (including MRSA), E. coli and Legionella. All kits are presented in our user and environment friendly modular packaging system with recyclable cardboard. The manufacturing of Prolex™ Latex Agglutination systems employs a redesigned process to enhance performance, clarity of results, and speed or reaction offering advantages over traditional latex reactions. Latex agglutination reagents used for detection of antigens or antibody have traditionally been prepared by physical adsorption of biological molecules to the surface of plain polystyrene (PS) microparticles [1]. Although perfectly acceptable latex reagents are created with this methodology, reagent stability and reactivity may be enhanced by covalent attachment of antigens and antibody to functionalized microparticles. For example, Ortega-Vinuesa et al [2] observed that covalent attachment of IgG resulted in improved immunodetection of C-reactive protein and storage characteristics relative to passive adsorption. The authors speculated this may have been due to more favorable orientation of the IgG on the surface of sensitized microparticles. Numerous approaches have been developed for covalent attachment of biological molecules to microparticles [1]; however, the most common employs carboxylate-modified microparticles (CM-MP) and chemical cross-linking agents. Prolex™ Latex Agglutination Systems are based on CM-MP and this represents a significant improvement over the traditional latex kits in terms of product performance characteristics, giving faster, clearer and more specific reactions.
