Stomacher® 80 used to process lung tissue in antifungal drug trial for Aspergillus fumigatus.The Stomacher® 80 blending action selected for extraction of fungal spores post drug exposure. Continue reading
The Stomacher® 80 was used to test tissue from mice. Place the Stomacher bag into the Stomacher, and run the Stomacher on high speed for 10 minutes. Mix the homogenate in the Stomacher bag.
The Stomacher® 80 was used to blend lungs and spleens of sacrificed animals. The study found that even with the optimum dose of the vaccine there was no further or enhanced protection against m.b tuberculosis.
Tissue specimens were homogenized in 3 ml of sterile saline using a Seward Stomacher 80, and the sterility of each vial of saline was confirmed at the time of use by bacterial
These results support the need for a minimum culture incubation period of 13 days to be applied to both aerobic and anaerobic culture media for all periprosthetic specimens. Optimal recovery of infecting organisms from PJI specimens will be an important component in generating a universal definition for PJI due to indolent agents of infection, such as P. acnes.
Lung tissue in each individual rabbit was sampled and cultured by excision of a representative region of the lung. Each fragment was weighed individually, placed in sterile stomacher® bags, and homogenized with sterile saline for 15 s per tissue sample in a Stomacher® 80.
