PREVI® Isola

Streaking Ahead

PREVI® Isola is a revolutionary automated plate streaker system for microbiology specimen processing that expands bioMérieux’s portfolio of automated solutions and streamlines the workflow of microbiology lean labs.

USES

  • Pre-analytical microbiology automation
  • Automated microbiology specimen processing instrument
  • Improved efficiency, workflow and standardization
  • Improved downstream productivity with more isolated colonies

 

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

In most labs today, the pre-analytical phase of microbiology still remains manual and time-consuming. This automated pre-poured media (PPM) streaker offers improved workflow efficiency through a patented robotic system that manages 90% of the steps required to process liquid microbiology specimen samples. The PREVI® Isola provides more isolated colonies per plate than manual methods.

  • Inoculates
  • Streaks
  • Labels

Intelligent Design:

  • High Throughput: 180 plates/hour
  • Standardized result that is not user dependent
  • Increased number of isolated colonies per plate (Reference JCM publication 4/08 by John Glasson)
  • Assurance of quality – new applicator used for each plate
  • Plates labeled and sorted by environment
  • HEPA filter manages instrument exhaust for added safety and security
  • Not limited to batched sampling; can manage varying specimen types at one time

The PREVI® Isola is a class 1 laser product.
