Sorting through the archives recently, we came across an edition of our customer newsletter from 1991 featuring an article on early spiral platers. The article gives a detailed explanation of the principles of spiral plating and provides a range of examples where this technique could be used to good advantage.
The technology used in Whitley Automated Spiral Platers (WASP) has come a long way in 27 years, yet the time saving to perform a threefold serial dilution on a single Petri dish are still as relevant today as they were in 1991.
