Culture-Based Bacterial Detection Methods

Although culture remains the gold standard for bacterial detection and identification, its sensitivity in detecting bacterial contamination of blood products is affected by numerous factors including the growth characteristics of the contaminating organism, timing of specimen procurement, specimen volume, and degree of initial bacterial contamination. Numerous studies of culture-based detection systems have been performed. These have demonstrated that the …

Amikacin Antimicrobial Susceptibility discs

Manually determine the antibiotic susceptibility of microorganisms using Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST) methods in conjunction with reliable, easy-to-use Amikacin Antimicrobial Susceptibility discs. Ease-of-use is provided by shatterproof spring-loaded cartridges, easy-to-read labeling and end-of-cartridge indicators. Disc diffusion not only categorizes resistant, intermediate and sensitive organisms through quantitative results but also provides a visual indication of the …

DMB Dipeptide Building Blocks

the synthesis of hydrophobic can be improved, aggregated sequences that contain glycine with the use of DMB Dipeptide Building Blocks. They work in exactly the same way as pseudoproline dipeptides by exploiting the natural propensity of N-alkyl amino acids to disrupt the formation of the secondary structures during peptide assembly. Their use can result in …
