The most fun serial dilution method!

By Elisabet | April 16, 2024

Dilugent Shaker indicates you which Dilucup to use with different colours, making serial dilutions a guided experience, as well as entertaining 😉

Tip: Dim the light in the roomand you'll see what colours come out of Dilugent Shaker
 They are amazing!

Happy Easter!

By Elisabet | March 27, 2024

Did you know that the daffodil (or PĂ„skliljan in Swedish) is the flower most associated with Easter in Sweden?

After a long winter, the streets have already been filled with little flowers of different colours all over the grass and they bring a lot of joy (apart from allergies ;)).

We wish you a Happy Easter and hopefully some sunny days to enjoy your days off! 🙂

Highly accurate diluent volume

By Elisabet | February 26, 2024

We control our dilution cups very much to make sure they have as little deviation from 9 mL as possible. We regularly make statistics of our analyses, and this is the latest one we have done.

🔊EXPLANATION:

In the following graph you can see the amount of Dilucups classified according to 3 different volume intervals during the last 3 years:

9 mL - (1 to 0,4999 %) ➡ 8,91 mL to 8,955 mL
9 mL ± 0,5 % ➡ 8,955 mL to 9,045 mL
9 mL + (0,5001 to 1 %) ➡ 9,045 mL to 9,09 mL

❕Note: according to ISO standards the volume must be: 9 mL ± 2 % (8,82 mL to 9,18 mL)

Results are based on approximately 15.000 volume measurements per year.

📈 RESULTS:

In 2021, 99,97 % of Dilucups had a volume of 9 mL ± 1 %, of which 89,21 % were in the range of 9 mL ± 0,5 %.

In 2022, 99,9% had a volume of 9 mL ± 1 %, of which 84,45 % were in the range of 9 mL ± 0,5 %.

Last year, 99,92% had a volume of 9 mL ± 1 %, of which 91,72 %* were in the range of 9 mL ± 0,5 %.

*This increase compared to 2022 is not a coincidence. Since summer 2023 we have been working harder so that the volume is in the range of 9 mL ± 0,5 %. This is because we know how important it is to have a highly accurate volume for many industries, such as probiotics.

📝 CONCLUSION:

Almost all Dilucups have a volume of 9 mL ± 1 %, with normal values being in the range of ± 0,5 %.

The results are consistent over the years, and our goal is to continue increasing the percentage of Dilucups that have a volume of 9 mL ± 0,5%.

New reactor installed

By Elisabet | January 19, 2024

This week we completed the installation of our new reactor and its heat exchanger!

With it we can produce up to 50% more Dilucups daily!

A necessary investment to meet the growing demand for these fantastic dilution cups.

You can safely use micropipettes with DilucupŸ

By Elisabet | November 16, 2023

Serial dilution with tubes and a micropipette can be challenging because the risk of contaminating the inside of the tube with the pipette is high.​ That is why straws are often used, but how can you be sure about the accuracy of the pipetted volume?

The good thing about Dilucup is that since it is a low cup, you can safely use a micropipette and get the best possible volume accuracy.

Higly accurate volume

By Elisabet | October 23, 2023

The most important thing when performing serial dilutions is that the volume is accurate. Otherwise, you can forget about having a good result because the accumulated error will give you a wrong enumeration of microorganisms.

Volume statistics (based on 25.000 measurements):

  • 94,4 % -> 9 mL ± 0.5 %
  • 99,95 % -> 9 mL ± 1 %
  • 100 % -> 9 mL ± 2 % (according to ISO standards)

Methods where filling tubes or other recipients is done in the laboratory cannot guarantee a volume as accurate as Dilucup.

Latest volume accuracy analysis

By Elisabet | March 15, 2023

The volume of a diluent must be accurate to have reliable results and according to EN ISO 6887-1: 2017 the volume should not deviate from 9,0 mL ± 2 % (9 mL ± 0,18 mL).

We want to be better than this and that is why DilucupŸ aims for a volume range of 9 mL ± 1 %.

99,95% of the 25.000 latest Dilucups analysed in our QC laboratory had a volume of 9 mL ± 1 %, with an average of 9 mL + 0,26 % mL (9,02 mL) and a SD of 0,21 %.

Pretty good volume accuracy, don’t you think?

The ergonomic solution for serial dilutions

By Elisabet | February 7, 2023

Have you ever got pain in your wrist or joints?

If so, you surely know how limiting it can be, requiring sometimes even months of sick leave to recover.

When you use a vortex mixer vibrations are absorbed by your hand/wrist. With the Dilucup system, the shaker is the one that absorbs all movements, so your joints don’t suffer any damage.

Our serial dilution system protects you against repetitive strain injuries in hands or wrists.

It’s really comfortable to use. Try it and you won’t regret! Don't let a vortex ruin your well-being!

How to make multiple serial dilutions at the same time

By Elisabet | January 10, 2023

Making many serial dilutions can be time consuming and monotonous.

Have you never thought about making multiple serial dilutions at the same time?
This is possible with DilugentÂź Shaker Pro!

You can dilute up to 7 samples at the same time without getting lost.

How to enumerate microorganisms?

By Elisabet | July 28, 2022

How to enumerate the microorganisms in a food sample using Dilucup?

  1. First homogenize the sample if it is solid. This is the first 1/10 dilution.
  2. Once the sample is suspended or if the sample is liquid, serial dilute it using Dilucup.
  3. Plate 1 mL of the selected suspension(s) and incubate.
  4. Count the colonies (the plates should have between 30 and 300 CFUs to get a statistically valid result).
  5. Divide the average number of CFUs per the dilution level to get the number of microorganisms per mL or g in the original sample.
