A paper has been published describing the effects of oxygen limitation on food-borne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes. The study was conducted by Carol Philips’ group at The University of Northampton and involved the use of a Whitley Anaerobic Workstation as well as a Whitley Automated Spiral Plater. The workstation was used to incubate the samples which were then plated onto BHI (Brain Heart Infusion) agar using the spiral plater.
This is just one of the areas of microbiology where Don Whitley Scientific equipment can be beneficial. Due to the level of atmospheric control on offer, Whitley Workstations are used across the broad spectrum of microbiology and can also be used in other scientific disciplines.
The Whitley Workstation range includes various sizes of workstations, accommodating 250 to 1200 petri dishes. Other products on offer from Don Whitley Scientific can be used in conjunction with our workstations, for example in this study a Whitley Automated Spiral Plater was also used.
