How to make multiple serial dilutions at the same time
| 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 Dilugent® Shaker Pro!
You can dilute up to 7 samples at the same time without getting lost.
Watch the video to see an example!

Thank you very much for this year!
Note that LabRobot will be closed during week 52 (26th ‐ 30th December).
So if you need a new supply of Dilucup pallets before the end of the year, we need to have your order in by December 20th. We will also be able to process small express orders (one pallet max.) for those placed up until the 28th.
Have a magical Christmas holidays! 🙂
How to enumerate microorganisms?
| July 28, 2022
How to enumerate the microorganisms in a food sample using Dilucup?
- First homogenize the sample if it is solid. This is the first 1/10 dilution.
- Once the sample is suspended or if the sample is liquid, serial dilute it using Dilucup.
- Plate 1 mL of the selected suspension(s) and incubate.
- Count the colonies (the plates should have between 30 and 300 CFUs to get a statistically valid result).
- Divide the average number of CFUs per the dilution level to get the number of microorganisms per mL or g in the original sample.
Watch the video to understand it better!

As you may know, according to EN ISO 6887-1: 2017 the volume of a diluent should not deviate from 9,0 mL ± 2 %.
99,97 % of all Dilucups analysed during 2020 and 2021 had a volume of 9,0 mL ± 1 %, with an average of 9,0 mL +0,2 %.
Each point on the diagram represents the volume of a manually controlled Dilucup® in the QC laboratory. Values are given as deviation from 9 mL.
