Eddy Jet 2W – Spiral plater

Eddy Jet 2W reduces cost per test, hands on time, and consumable use during bacterial enumeration while increasing a microbiology lab’s productivity.

This cutting edge spiral plater automates, standardizes and streamlines plate inoculations with its patented cross-contamination free technology. Microsyringes confer the system unique, unmatched advantages that make it a bestseller. The user interface is very intuitive and there are no setup times.

Although Eddy Jet 2W is mostly used by food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical labs, any microbiology lab can largely benefit from its use. This instrument will generate a threefold dilution concentration gradient in a single plate, allowing labs to skip serial dilutions and most plating. Each sample is processed with a brand new sterile microsyringe, making sample handling a cross contamination free process.

Other than bacterial enumeration, antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) and mutagenicity test applications are also available.

System Highlights

Sterility:

An exclusive patented microsyringe technology allows for genuine sampling sterility. Since no disinfectants are used, Eddy Jet 2W does away with any possible false negative results due to disinfectant carryover.

Simplicity:

Get trained in less than 5 minutes: insert a Petri plate, press on the “play button” in Eddy Jet 2W’s innovative color touch screen, and that’s it, PLUG & PLATE!

Fully Validated:

Spiral plating is a fully validated Microbiological method, see: ISO 7218/ AOAC 977.27/ FDA (BAM Ch.3). Verification protocols are available for each section of the device’s spirals.

Advantageous Mechanics:

Eddy Jet’s dependable Stepper Microcontroller motors regulate the instrument’s high precision microsyringe liquid dispensing. This approach avoids all the issues of competing technologies where cleaning cycles, disinfectant preparation, cross contamination, unnecessary and complex liquid handling, stylus calibration, noisy vacuum pumps, and complicated maintenance requirements soon shadow the advantages of spiral plating.

Connectivity:

Eddy Jet 2W features cutting edge connectivity; it can be connected to a barcode reader and a printer in order to provide plate traceability. It’s USB and Ethernet connections allow for connection of a key board for data insertion or a pendrive for upgrades.
