It’s my immense pleasure to write a testimonial for the Whitley A35 Anaerobic Workstation, the machine with which I have worked for the last 3 years. This is a very user friendly instrument.
After installing this gloveless workstation, processing and handling of the samples has become very easy. There is sufficient internal space to work and incubate a large amount of plates. The best part of this machine is daily inspection of plates and the provision of a letterbox facility for single plates. We have carried out different experiments related to anaerobic bacteria using this instrument and the results are much better than conventional methods.
After installing this machine, our turnaround time for positive cultures has improved. Maintenance is also less. There is not much expertise needed for handling this workstation. We found this machine to be more economical than conventional culture methods. Overall we have had a good experience with the A35.
