We are loving the Biolog MicroStation and are extremely satisfied with our purchase!
Everything is going well with the Biolog ML-M system. The students are finding it easy to use and interesting – I think it is working well for what we are doing.
GENIII on the ML-M system is working well – my class generated some preliminary results from it that got us a small grant. (looking at some enterococci)
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. The Biolog assay gives students insight into rapid-detection methods used in research and other lab settings. There is some good-natured competition among the students to get the best (highest) probability value on their identification match. The assay is sophisticated yet adaptable for student use – over 95% of our students are able to complete the assay and achieve an accurate identification. (500 or more students per year)
