Serial dilutions with Dilucup Elegance

LabRobot Products AB has invested and developed a patented concept that makes it possible to perform serial dilutions easier, safer, faster and more cost-effectively.

The Dilucup system is easy to use​​​​​​​:
• Place the number of ready-made Dilucups needed for your dilution in the Dilushaker
• Carefully tear off the protective film on the Dilucups
• Add 1 ml sample to the first Dilucup
• Start the shaker by moving the hand in front of the optical sensor
• When the Dilushaker stops, the 1:10 dilution is completed
• Use a new pipette tip, take 1 ml from the first cup and add it to cup number two to perform the next dilution (1: 100)
• Start the shaker by moving the hand in front of the optical sensor
• Repeat this operation until the last dilution is reached

LabRobot Products AB now produces a new generation Dilucups. The new Dilucups have been named "Dilucup Elegance" and have several improvements such as:
• Round corners that will not destroy the waste plasticbag
• A white "lock film" makes it easy to see any droplet that stays on the film
• The protective film is easier to remove

Dilucup Elegance comes in new packages with new capacity. Each box contains 2 sealed bags with 336 cups in each (672 cups / box). Remember that the opened bag should be stored in a refrigerator.​​​​​​​

Applications:
• Food and feed
• Fermentation
• Paper and pulp
• Process water
