Dilucup is largely used by microbiological laboratories in all kinds of food industries but also by a large number of service/contract laboratories, who use the system to process food & feed samples. For the analysis of liquid products (milk, juice, drinks,…) Dilucup can be used for all dilutions. A first dilution, often in a stomacher bag, is needed for other matrices such as meat, fish, whole egg, vegetables, animal feed, milk powder, cream, etc… The growing trend to use Pro or Prebiotics in food also contributes to the promotion of Dilucup. Indeed, the demand for a larger range of dilutions (up to 8 – 12 successive dilutions on a sample) is increasing again, despite a usually lower contamination of the raw materials than in the past.
For food analysis, the Dilucup MRD (Maximal Recovery Diluent) is the most popular product together with the Dilucup BPW (Buffered Peptone Water).
