Tweet Botulism Cases Rise Posted on February 3rd 2015 by Deborah Robinson Categories Australia Germany News Press Releases No Comments Tags A35 workstation Anaerobic Bacteriology anaerobic chamber Anaerobic Microbiology Anaerobic Workstation Scottish media has recently reported an increase in the number of diagnosed cases of botulism Caused by toxins produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum this condition attacks the nervous system can cause paralysis and may be fatal if left untreated There are three types of botulism food borne wound and infant Diagnosis is achieved by conducting tests on samples of blood faeces stomach contents or food to detect the bacteria or toxins Having to send samples off to an external laboratory for analysis can mean delaying diagnosis and by extension treatment for longer than necessary Hospitals which are equipped to perform these tests in house will have a much greater chance of containing and treating this illness effectively Anaerobic jars can be restrictive when processing a large number of samples whereas an anaerobic workstation provides a sustainable environment where parameters can be altered to create the required conditions The Whitley A35 Anaerobic Workstation can accommodate up to 600 x 90mm Petri dishes and like our other anaerobic chambers it provides excellent conditions for the processing incubation and examination of samples without exposure to atmospheric oxygen For more information please contact us Tweet Anaerobes Where to Start Posted on January 23rd 2015 by Deborah Robinson Categories Australia
