Providing quick, consistent and reliable testing to ensure the food supply is safe
Bacteria contamination is harmful to humans. Organisms such as E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella can cause illness or death which is why Federal organizations such as the Environmental Protection Agency, Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture utilize our technology to ensure the safety of our food supply.
Testing needs to be quick, consistent and reliable to ensure that food reaches the consumer at maximum quality and freshness.
We offer the fast, flexible, and easy-to-use Anoxomat® system to provide food safety microbiology laboratories with an automated technology for culturing anaerobic and microaerophilic bacteria such as Clostridium and Campylobacter, as well as capnophilic bacteria.
Quickly and easily detect bacteria in food with the Anoxomat system.
Anoxomat uses the widely known McIntosh and Fildes system of evacuation and replacement to create anaerobic environments. During the anaerobic evacuation cycle, oxygen within the jar is replaced with hydrogen. After the anaerobic cycle, 0.16% residual oxygen content is left in the jar, which is then removed by a Palladox Disposable Sachet. The anaerobic recipe leaves the jar with a strict zero oxygen level and 10% carbon dioxide mix.
This method is the most efficient way to create precise, reproducible conditions because it rapidly removes the oxygenated environment from a jar and replaces it with precise amounts of anaerobic, or microaerophilic or capnophilic gas mixtures.
After 5 minutes, the Anoxomat will indicate that the jar has been successfully processed and the designated environment has been created. The jar can then be uncoupled. The snap-shut coupling on the lid closes upon disconnection. The jar is ready for incubation and the Anoxomat is ready for the next job.
According to FDA stipulations, analytical results from laboratory tests are used to ensure the safety, purity and effectiveness of food and drugs for consumers. Liquid handling equipment plays a critical role in measuring and analyzing samples to determine if they possess these desired properties.
If liquid delivery instrumentation operates out of specification for even one day, how much uncertainty can laboratories legally tolerate? With our technology and services, you can take the liquid handling errors out of the equation. Our liquid handling products and services can help you ensure consistency, quality, and compliance of operations, analytical workflows, and operator proficiency.
We’ve provided resources that discuss the various use cases, benefits and the results of utilizing Advanced Instruments’ Anoxomat III Anaerobic Jar System for food safety testing.

We provide a range of services and service plans to meet the different needs of our customers. Our certified Field Service Engineers provide on-site professional support for the installation, training, validation, and maintenance of your instrument.
The small footprint of this instrument is great for our lab! The Anoxomat is a workhorse and has given us very few problems historically. Ease of use among many users and quality, reproducible results are a given with this instrument.
[The Anoxomat is] very easy to use and efficient, easy to clean and reliable, it was such an improvement from our previous method of heat sealing and anaerobic pouches, I absolutely love these jars!
The Artel PCS fulfills our requirements on ISO compliant pipette calibration and testing. Results are reproducible and variance is lower than in manual process. Personnel is easily trained on the device. Process is faster than manual process.
We use an Artel PCS system to calibrate our pipettes. We purchase all the reagents necessary to use. Have contacted Artel Technical support for questions in regard to using the Artel system and necessary trouble shooting suggestions. Happy with the service for purchase of the system that we are using and the products. Verification of pipettes using this system has saved us time and provided more accurate results compared to using balances for verification of pipettes in particular small volumes.
The Anoxomat system is easy to use, has very little maintenance and consistently gives good growth of quality control organisms.
Ease of use and reproducibility of results are excellent. I would recommend [Anoxomat] for any microbiology department to ensure proper anaerobic conditions are met!
We have no problems recovering fastidious anaerobes and microaerophilic organisms such as Campylobacter. The [Anoxomat] instrument is easy to use with very few problems. Our techs like the disposable sachets ... there is one less task for the techs to monitor and perform.
The Anoxomat III is an efficient instrument. It continues to provide anaerobic conditions for our anaerobic chambers with consistent results. It is relatively easy to use. You can add additional plates to a jar after it has been charged, just remember to let the jar come to atmospheric conditions for a minute before you recharge it. ...
