Petri Dish Filler

Product story

Looking for a reliable walk-away Petri dish filler?

When filling agar medium into Petri dishes, a sterile environment is of utmost importance. However, the risk of contaminating the agar medium if poured manually into Petri dishes should not be underestimated. Even if using a peristaltic pump, sterility might be jeopardized as dishes and tubes are manipulated by hand. In addition, filling a large number of Petri dishes manually is a painstaking process.

The INTEGRA Petri dish filler helps you to avoid these drawbacks. MEDIAJET can process up to 1100 dishes in a single hour and provides truly reliable walk-away operation. Equipped with a UV lamp, the filling chamber where Petri dishes are automatically filled with agar medium, is kept free from contamination.

How it Works

How it works

MEDIAJET offers the unique flexibility to fill Petri dishes of various sizes, Petri dishes with two compartments or test tubes of various diameters and length. At the same time, MEDIAJET requires only minimal bench space in the laboratory.

  • Easy Handling

    MEDIAJET Petri dish filler features an intuitive user interface

    The intuitive user interface makes it very easy to control all functions of MEDIAJET. The operation of the system is entirely self-explanatory, as all functions and prompts are explained in plaintext.

  • Reliable Walk-Away Automation

    MEDIAJET Petri dish filler guarantees reliabel walk-away automation with sophisticated Feed-In/Stack-Out technology

    With the novel Feed-In/Stack-Out technology, MEDIAJET guarantees a reliable operation. Typical production variations in the diameter or shape of the Petri dishes are easily handled by the unit, as they are actively guided throughout the entire filling process. The optical dish sensors of MEDIAJET can be easily adjusted to virtually every Petri dish brand at the user interface level.

  • Media Cost Reduction

    MEDIAJET Petri dish filler has a agar spread function for media cost reduction

    MEDIAJET has a built-in "Agar Spread Function" which ensures a homogenous distribution and an even surface of the agar. It helps to optimize the Agar level in the Petri dish and thereby allows a significant reduction of media costs.

  • Eliminating sources of contamination

    MEDIAJET Petri dish filler is equipped with a UV lamp to provide a clean environment

    For consistent Agar plate quality, a clean environment is essential. The surface of the filling chamber is manufactured of a single piece of resistant PE, which allows efficient cleaning. In addition, MEDIAJET is equipped with a UV lamp extending over the full length of the rotor where the dishes are opened during the filling process. The lamp emits powerful 2.1 W UV-C radiation for optimal bactericidal activity in the area most vulnerable to contamination.

  • Process Documentation and Validation

    MEDIAJET process documentation

    MEDIAJET provides all features necessary to support the individual needs in quality control. All process relevant information can be documented using a standard external printer or by directly transferring the information to a personal computer.

    In connection with MEDIACLAVE, these data can also be printed on its embedded printer. If connected to MEDIACLAVE10 or MEDIACLAVE30, an electronic log file including the MEDIAJET process data is created.

  • Petri Dish Imprinting

    MEDIAJET Petri dish filler offers possibility to imprint dishes

    Different optionally available inkjet printer connection kits allow the connection of three different brands of inkjet printers (MARKEM-IMAJE, LINX, Domino DOWNLOAD OVERVIEW). All inkjet printer systems permit to apply a wide variety of information onto the Petri dishes like alphanumeric text, expiry/production date or barcodes.

    All supported inkjet printers allow side wall imprinting. Alternatively, dishes can be imprinted on the bottom using the LINXinkjet printer.

The quality of blood agar plates is of prime importance for the reliable determination of hemolysis type a common technique in medical diagnostics to classify Gram positive cocci. If combining the MEDIAJET Petri dish filler with the DOSE IT peristaltic pump, the blood can be added to the agar immediately before pouring the plate. This minimizes the time the blood is exposed to hot agar medium and thus efficiently reduces thermally induced lysis of erythrocytes.
