Shorten your workflow with FitBag UVM1 Broth. FitBag Enrichment Media is quick, easy-to-prepare, and highly adaptable to laboratory workflows and automated equipment, such as dilutors. No further supplementation is required.

Cost-effective: no need for weighing of media or sterilization, reducing the burden of media preparation, which frees up resources and equipment.

Flexible: segmented structure allows advanced preparation by filling one segment with deionized water from which FitBag Enrichment Media can be reconstituted within two minutes. Pre-sterilized water may also be added under aseptic conditions.

Easy-to-use: fill and dispense with minimum training.

Energy saving:
gamma irradiated, eliminating the need for costly thermal processing.

Safe: eliminate handling of glassware, weighing of culture media, and the need to add supplementary reagents. Empty bags can be disposed of with normal laboratory waste.

Reduces waste: unprepared FitBag Enrichment Media can be kept for up to 24 months. Rehydrated media has a shelf life of 10 days.

Quality guaranteed: compliant with ISO 11133 and ISO 7218. Quality certificates are available for every batch, reducing the QC testing needed.

Space-saving:
conveniently packed in flat boxes, FitBag Enrichment Media takes up relatively little space compared to prepared media and can be made up as required.
