    Looking for a reliable walk-away Petri dish filler?     
    MEDIAJET offers the unique flexibility to fill Petri dishes of various sizes, Petri dishes with two compartments or test tubes of various diameters and length. At the same time, MEDIAJET requires only minimal bench space in the laboratory.

    Easy handling
    The intuitive user interface makes it very easy to control all functions of MEDIAJET. The operation of the system is entirely self-explanatory, as all functions and prompts are explained in plaintext.

    Media cost reduction
    MEDIAJET has a built-in "Agar Spread Function" which ensures a homogenous distribution and an even surface of the agar. It helps to optimize the Agar level in the Petri dish and thereby allows a significant reduction of media costs.

    Reliable walk-away automation  
    With the novel Feed-In/ Stack-Out technology, MEDIAJET guarantees a reliable operation. Typical production variations in the diameter or shape of the Petri dishes are easily handled by the unit, as they are actively guided throughout the entire filling process. The optical dish sensors of MEDIAJET can be easily adjusted to virtually every Petri dish brand at the user interface level.

    Eliminating sources of contamination
    For consistent Agar plate quality, a clean environment is essential. The surface of the filling chamber is manufactured of a single piece of resistant PE, which allows efficient cleaning. In addition, MEDIAJET is equipped with a UV lamp extending over the full length of the rotor where the dishes are opened during the filling process. The lamp emits powerful 2.1 W UV-C radiation for optimal bactericidal activity in the area most vulnerable to contamination.

    Operation modes
    Up to 19 individual Petri dish filling programs can be saved and recalled.

    Different operation modes for Petri dish filling can be executed and the parameters set to your needs:

    1. STANDARD mode:
    Used for filling of Ø 90, 60 or 35 mm Petri dishes.
    2. TURBO mode:
    Used to accelerate the filling process. Together with the optional Turbo Mode Kit installed, up to 1'100 Petri dishes can be filled in one hour.
    3. BATCH mode:
    The Batch mode is used for applications where a highly planar agar surface is important, as for example in automatic colony counting. 
    4. POUR PLATE mode:
    Total viable count determination is mainly carried out by using the pour plate method. The POUR PLATE mode facilitates this process by automatically shaking the Petri dishes. Different shaking levels are selectable according to requirements.

    Process documentation and validation
    MEDIAJET provides all features necessary to support the individual needs in quality control. All process relevant information can be documented using a standard external printer or by directly transferring the information to a personal computer.

    In connection with MEDIACLAVE, these data can also be printed on its embedded printer. If connected to MEDIACLAVE 10 or MEDIACLAVE 30, an electronic log file including the MEDIAJET process data is created.

    Petri dish imprinting
    Different optionally available inkjet printer connection kits allow the connection of three different brands of inkjet printers (MARKEM-IMAJE, LINX, Domino – Download Overview). All inkjet printer systems permit to apply a wide variety of information onto the Petri dishes like alphanumeric text, expiry / production date or barcodes.
    All supported inkjet printers allow side wall imprinting. Alternatively, dishes can be imprinted on the bottom using the LINX 5900 (4900) inkjet printer module.
