The Concentrating Pipette provides rapid concentration of spoilage organisms and particulate contaminants. It can concentrate molds, yeasts, and bacteria from up to 355 mL of beer in minutes for rapid analysis with PCR or other analytical methods. Average concentration factors of 1000X -2000X are commonly achievable. Your products can be screened for quality in a single shift. It saves money in labor, product hold times, wasted packaging in the case of recall, and ensures prolonged quality. It allows more screening to be performed in a shift – faster, easier and better.

"If your goal is to move to one-day QC, the InnovaPrep method provides the best possible sensitivity to do it when paired with rapid molecular assays"
