Baker Products Showcased in New Orleans, LA, June 2-4

Sanford, ME, May 21, 2017 – Baker Ruskinn, a global leader in anaerobic and precision low-oxygen culture solutions for microbiology, cell culture application and air containment, contamination control, and controlled environments solutions, will be exhibiting at the ASM Microbe 2017, June 2-4 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.  Baker will feature our Bugbox Anaerobic Workstation at Booth # 2546. A powerful anaerobic workstation, the Bugbox features a small footprint with 200 x 90mm plate capacity at an affordable price, ideal for hospitals and small labs clinical diagnostic screening applications.

Bugbox anaerobic workstations are designed specifically to help microbiologists cope with rising workloads and provide the best primary isolation rates. Plates can be examined easily without exposing them to oxygen. The interlock system allows simple and fast transfer of 10 x 90mm plates into the anaerobic chamber. With quick and easy access via the Ezee Sleeve Glove port system and energy-saving lighting that provides perfect illumination, Bugbox is easy to use. Its compact size meets the needs of even the smallest laboratory spaces. Adjustable temperature and humidity provides a precisely controlled anaerobic environment that is optimal for cell growth, with no dry spots. Compared with approximately 20 anaerobic jars per week, Bugbox is economical with a lower cost per plate, more reliable, providing a stable atmosphere, and minimal maintenance.

In addition to the Bugbox, Baker & Baker Ruskinn feature the following complimentary microbiology equipment solutions:

  • Concept Range anaerobic workstations have been designed to maximize productivity of systemized anaerobic or microaerophilic incubation; bringing together a host of brand new features that will deliver immediate benefits in the laboratory. With new innovative features, four models and higher capacity, the Concept range provides f the best primary isolation rates for anaerobic and microaerophilic cultures.
  • The SterilGARD® e3 Biological Safety Cabinet from Baker provides proven air containment and contamination controlled technology that saves energy, increases productivity and improves worker safety.
  • Baker’s EdgeGARD HF horizontal laminar-flow clean bench provides HEPA-filtered air and proven product protection ideal for a range of laboratory applications. With a patented cabinet design incorporating high-velocity return air slots, EdgeGARD HF provides precise directional control of airflow volumes and velocities, thereby maximizing product protection and ensuring Class 100 air cleanliness for the laboratory.
