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 enzyme solution with tissue is taken out and put in the stomacher strainer bags with inner tissue filter at the rate of 25 ml of enzyme solution per bag. The air in the bag is removed to prevent the bag from rupturing and the bag is sealed at least twice at the top using a heat sealer. The bag is placed in the stomacher 400 Circulator and the stomacher is run at 150 rpm for 10 minutes at 37˚C.
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.
The Stomacher® 80 was used to blend solid tumors for 12 minutes.
Notch receptor signaling pathways play an important role not only in normal breast development but also in breast cancer development and progression. We assessed the role of Notch receptors in stem cell activity in breast cancer cell lines and nine primary human tumor samples. Our findings suggest that Notch4-targeted therapies will be more effective than targeting Notch1 in suppressing breast cancer recurrence, as it is initiated by breast cancer stem cells.
The purpose of this study was to develop, evaluate and compare, ICP-MS, XRF, and TXRF methods for accurate quantitation of mercury in 10 different face cream samples. The Stomacher® 80 was used as part of the XRF method.

The Stomacher was used to process genitourinary tissue in an investigation of vulvovaginal candidiasis (VVC). This is an opportunistic mucosal infection caused by Candida albicans that affects large numbers of otherwise healthy women of childbearing age. Continue reading
