Quality Control Reference Strains
Pulse Scientific is the authorized distributor for the Prestigious Line of Lyophilized Bacterial, Fungal and Yeast Cultures produced by Microbiologics. Microbiologics is the world's largest commercial producer with over 850 strains, mostly derived from American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) or from other culture collection centers.

The micro-organisms are available as Qualitative Format (Kwikstik or Lyfodisk) and Quantitative formats.

Quantitative Cultures are designed to meet the USP requirements for Growth Promotion Test (GPT), Antimicrobial Effectiveness Test (AET) and many other applications.

For GPT, EZ-CFU, EZ-CFU One-Step and EZ-Accushot are suitable.

For AET, the EZ-PEC line is the proper choice.

The EPower Line offers organisms from 103 to 108 concentration and provides customers with a lot of choices.

If there is any strain that you do not find on the Microbiologics website, you can contact Pulse Scientific order@pulsescientific.com and we can forward a questionnaire to you. Once Microbiologics has received a number of customer inquiries, they will look into the possibility of producing and adding that specific culture. We have customers that had gone through this process (takes 3 to 6 months) and is very happy with receiving the new cultures to making his work much easier.

Micro-organism Preservation System (Bactobank)
Pulse Scientific has developed Bactobank with a specific formulation to preserve Micro-organisms for long term storage. The product contains plastic beads placed inside a cryo-vial containing broth. The method is simple to use. This product requires just inoculating a heavy suspension of the target micro-organism into the vial. Let it stand a few seconds and then decant the broth and freeze the vial at -20 degrees Celsius. The survival time varies with the organism but usually 1 to 2 years is common.

The product is supplied with a beautiful cryo-box in sizes of 25, 50 or 100 vials. The box contains mixed color beads/vials for easy identification. Bactobank can be stored at room temperature.

Anaerobic and Microaerophilic Gas Packs
This is a NEW addition to our Microbiology line. Our own formulation allows a quick way to generate the right atmosphere for growing anaerobic and microaerophilic organisms. Anaero-Sure and Microaero-Sure are available as 10 sachets/box format.
