Dave explains how InnovaPrep's rapid concentration method helps monitoring pathogens in difficult matrices such as wastewater faster, easier, and better. See also the Concentrating Pipette Select Demo Video
Dave describes the differences between the 0.05 micron pipette tip and the ultrafilter pipette tips for concentrating viruses and why the choice is as much determined by your matrix as it is by your target organisms.
Dave explains the how InnovaPrep's patented Wet Foam Elution process works and why it is so effective for recovering microorganisms from filters.
Dave discusses how rapid concentration helps the Aquaculture industry combat the devastating impact of fish pathogens.
