We’ve used the Biolog Gen III Microstation in our Microbiology Lab course for majors for over 2 years now. It is one of the most popular labs among students. We use it to identify unknowns after several weeks of using traditional media tests. Students are amazed by the quick turn-around and large amount of data produced by the assay.
In our microbiology-based research courses, students use Biolog to supplement other bacterial identification methods. This reinforces the benefit of using multiple lines of evidence to strengthen conclusions based on scientific results. Plus Biolog is fun and easy to use!
I started using the Ecoplates this summer and I’m quite pleased with the results. I still have to run the full data analysis to extract more information but what I saw in terms of color patterns at different sites seems very promising. Based on results of the full data analysis, we’ll develop our protocol to apply it to a course that we teach here.
We have used Biolog Omnilog® Microbacteria identification for couple months. To my amazement, it dramatically reduced our loading by analyzing up to 50 bacterial samples at the same time. It can automatically analyze the plates at specified period and record the raw data. The device also keep at optimum parameter for best incubation temperature. Besides, the software is user friendly and the experiment is easy to perform. We love Biolog Omnilog® so much!!
We’ve used the Biolog Gen III OmniLog® and MicroStation™ in our Microbiology Lab course for majors for over 2 years now. We use it to identify unknowns of our regular environmental studies and water test after several weeks of using traditional media tests. We are very amazed by the quick turn-around and large amount of data produced by the assay. This is very rapid and accurate identification system. One of the best instrument with compliance FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11. OmniLog® ID System fully automates the process of microbial identification by incubating, reading and interpreting results.
