Lab M adds Pinnacle pre-poured plates to prepared media offering


The first Pinnacle products are for use in the food industry

Lab M has extended its ready prepared microbiological culture media with the addition of the Pinnacle brand, a new line of pre-poured plates.

Pinnacle brings together Lab M’s experience and expertise in the development, manufacture and supply of dehydrated culture media (DCM) and the expanded plate pouring capabilities at the company’s new UK headquarters in Heywood, Lancashire.

\'Our move to new premises in 2012 gave us greatly expanded cleanroom facilities and significantly enhanced plate pouring capacity, all operating within a strictly controlled GMP environment. Pinnacle is the result and we’ve chosen the brand name to reflect our belief that as a DCM manufacturer pouring our own media the quality will be the best it can possibly be,\' said Ian Morris, Lab M’s Managing Director.

The first Pinnacle products are focused on food industry applications. Listeria Chromogenic Agar for the isolation of Listeria monocytogenes and Tryptone Bile Glucuronide Agar for the isolation of Escherichia coli will be closely followed by CSIM for the isolation of Cronobacter sakazakii from milk and milk products and chromogenic ABC medium for the isolation of Salmonellae.
