BD Kiestra? InoqulA+? sample processor
The automated solution to your sample processing challenges
When automating your laboratory, it is important to look for a solution that is able to automate your entire volume and workload.
The BD Kiestra? InoqulA+? sample processor automates the processing of both liquid and non-liquid samples.
Rolling bead technology
Consistently achieve accurate inoculation results by producing three to five times more discrete colonies compared to traditional loop-based inoculation methods. 1,6
Enables the processing of liquid and non-liquid samples types on the BD Kiestra? InoqulA+? in a protected manner.
Slide and broth tube inoculation
including automatic broth and optional slide inoculation.
Conductive pipette technology
Precisely dispense accurate volume while also detecting clots and foam.
Positive dispense verification
Real-time dispense confirmation by verifying the sample passes from the pipette onto the agar surface.
Closed lid streaking
May limit aerosol contamination by streaking samples with the petri-dish lid closed.
Fully automated (FA) and Semi automated (SA) modes
The Fully Automated mode automates processing of liquid samples with a throughput of up to 220 plates per hour. The Semi Automated mode is for processing both liquid and non-liquid samples.
