Discover the advantages of our media preparators: streamline your laboratory workflow, save time, reduce costs and improve the quality of your production.
Today, any manager of a microbiology or plant tissue culture laboratory is looking for ways to automate their production processes in order to increase efficiency and quality. In addition to striving to minimize manual tasks, as they are time-consuming and may lead to human errors and accidents, any laboratory manager also prioritizes utilizing their staff for tasks of higher value-added. It is also a priority to work with processes that optimize the traceability and quality of the results obtained.
At RAYPA, a worldwide leader in the development and manufacture of autoclaves with over 40 years of experience, we have found the solution: our media preparators, suitable for all types of laboratories, due to their performance, dimensions, capabilities and technical features. A single device that integrates the preparation, sterilization, cooling, and dispensing of culture media.
Advantages of using a RAYPA media preparator
The benefits of automation are indisputable, especially in fields such as microbiology and plant tissue culture. Due to their complexity, implementing automation in these areas means much more than simply reducing costs and increasing productivity.
Below, we detail the many advantages of using RAYPA’s AE-MP Series media preparator to automate your entire preparation of media workflow:
Automating processes involves managing and improving control over the entire cycle by tracking performance indicators to obtain a more reliable control and analysis. This guarantees homogeneous and higher quality samples with a lower risk of medium contamination and an increase in productivity with a significant reduction in costs.
In order to better manage this procedure, the media preparator records the entire process, step-by-step. Also, thanks to its large capacity, we can scale up and increase production if necessary, producing bigger volumes in less time. Therefore, the process is faster, and the laboratory is more efficient.
Accuracy, homogeneity and speed
Conducting the preparation, sterilization, cooling, and dispensing of culture media within a single device provides the procedure with a level of precision difficult to achieve through traditional manual techniques utilizing an autoclave. Our AE-MP Series media preparators record every detail and automatically follow all the preprogrammed parameters marked for each stage.
Working manually with an autoclave may present several issues:
Traceability throughout the entire process
Identifying and parameterizing the different stages of the media production process is a fundamental task of any microbiology or plant tissue culture laboratory because it is an essential requirement of Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).
Manually controlling the traceability during the preparation of the medium becomes a laborious task in which the possibility of human error is present at all times. Thanks to the connectivity of RAYPA’s media preparator, this deficiency is rectified as everything that happens in the media preparator is recorded for later consultation using the specific PC software. Also, tickets of each batch can be issued with an embedded printer.
Reduction in the risk of occupational accidents
Despite the training of laboratory technicians, established protocols, and necessary clothing and equipment, accidents still occur, particularly in environments where chemical products are handled and high temperatures are involved.
Furthermore, due to the manual nature of the media preparation process, personnel are often required to perform repetitive tasks and adopt uncomfortable postures, which can lead to chronic low back pain or other related conditions over time and potentially result in sick leave.
The ergonomic design and flexibility of RAYPA’s media preparator, combined with the minimal supervision required for its operation, greatly reduces the potential risks, accidents, and sick leave associated with repetitive tasks and uncomfortable postures commonly encountered during manual preparation of culture media. he work is performed in a more comfortable position for the operator, faster and with complete safety, avoiding the possible risks of burns or from poor posture during repetitive tasks.
Additionally, at RAYPA we prioritize, first and foremost, the prevention and safety of our products, which include standard features such as:
