Monitoring OD enables early detection of bacterial growth prior to colony formation.
Various microbiological studies, including bacterial growth monitoring and drug susceptibility testing using the disk method, are automated.
A standard incubator holds ten sets of the monitors.
A: It depends on the combination of bacteria and the agar plate, but we have been able to detect standard strains of CPE (carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae) in 4-8 hours on selective agar plates for CPE.
A: Since this device measures transmitted light, any agar plate with a certain degree of transmittance can be used for measurement.
A: Yes. This device monitors bacterial growth every 5 minutes.
A: Yes. In addition, it is possible to detect the inhibition zone earlier than the conventional 18 hours.
A: Yes. Since it detects the growth from the logarithmic phase. The difference will depend on the combination of bacteria and culture medium, but in a typical experiment it detects the growth approximately 100 minutes earlier than the camera method. Also, since this device is small, five units can be placed in the space required for the camera method.
