PREVi™ Isola

Previ™ Isola is an automated plate streaker from bioMerieux. However, we didn't just automate the plate streaking process—we innovated it. The streaking method providesgreater use of the agar surface by simulating 16 loops, streaking simultaneously. This process maximizes the agar surface area for colony growth—resulting in more colonies after a 24-hour period than standard streaking methods produce. Additionally, the Isola was designed by a microbiologist and handles plates as you would—agar side facing down—ensuring that the surface remains free of condensation. This frees skilled technicians to focus on areas requiring their expertise.
