To support research in food safety, the system can be used to prepare samples of food, or bacteria culture for a variety of molecular and microbiology studies.� The system adds a degree of automation and standardization which can increase the throughput while also improving the reliability and repeatability of experimental protocols.� Further, the system uses disposable cartridges which eliminates the need for decontamination, cleaning and sterilizing of re-useable equipment. Therefore, the preparation and clean-up time for a harvest is greatly reduced.� Further as the sample processing occurs within a sterile and closed system, the level of safety for handling pathogens.� The system is required to be purchased with the brand name Miltenyi Biotech to ensure it is compatible with commercial MACS� Tissue Dissociation Kits.� These consumable kits are designed and optimized for use in the gentleMACS system.� There are a broad range of kits available for separating bacteria from various animal tissues and undergo sufficient quality control standards.�� Features: Multiple processing options to support sample preparation for both screening diagnostics and molecular characterization of microorganisms in food� The system can separate bacteria from tissue (plant or animal based food matrices) while ensuring bacteria cell viability and conservation/preservation of epitopes.� The system can homogenize Gram negative, Gram positive bacteria and virus samples for extraction and isolation of organelles, proteins and DNA/RNA.� The base controller contains pre-defined programs and offers the flexibility to accommodate custom automated protocols. Bidirectional rotation (spin clockwise and counter clockwise) Control the rate of increase/decrease of rotation speed Rotate from�20-6000 RPM Multiple samples can be run simultaneously: each with the same or a unique program sequence.� The instrument can include integrated heaters to facilitate enzymatic incubation The temperature setting can be controlled to specified ranges at different process cycles. The temperature control can be programed within automated cycles.� The necessary components for providing external forces to separate or homogenize a sample are contained within sterile, leakproof disposable cartridges.� The samples does not come into contact with the base controller.� The device is rated for safe handling of foodborne pathogens and toxins Clauses/Provisions Incorporated by reference: This requirement incorporates one or more clauses by reference with the same force and effect as if they were given in full text.
