This article was originally published here

SANTA MARIA, Calif., March 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Hardy Diagnostics, a Santa Maria medical device manufacturer has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with LabRobot. LabRobot is a Swedish based laboratory device manufacturer and is the creator of the Dilucup system and the Dilushaker dilution instrument.

The Dilucup system is a dilution method that is revolutionary when compared with standardized manual serial dilution protocols. Dilucups come in blister packs of 21 or 42 cups, each filled with 9mL of buffer. The tray of Dilucups is placed on the Dilushaker and once the technician initiates the dilution process, the program can be advanced by activating the touch-free optical sensor or foot switch. A row of LED’s aid the technician in tracking dilution progress which reduces errors during filling. The reduction of wasteful error potential and the standard 9mL buffer filled and sealed Dilucups all contribute to significant financial savings for testing laboratories of any size.

The Dilushaker is designed with a specific focus on efficiency and accuracy, allowing for rapid dilutions while reducing lab technician fatigue and the risk of repetitive motion injury. Additionally, the Dilushaker is fully customizable which enables labs to establish realistic standardized protocols for serial dilution because the risk of variability between technicians is virtually eliminated.

“The time and money this system will save our customers is tremendous,” says Chris Catani, Corporate VP of Hardy Diagnostics. “We’re incredibly excited to be able to partner with LabRobot to bring this product to our clients.”
