Eriez +1 888.300.3743 Erie, PA Mettler Toledo Introduces New Excellence Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer DMA 1 Mettler Toledo has announced the launch of the latest Excellence Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer DMA 1. This highly flexible analyzer offers six different deformation modes to more accurately gauge materials performance. As one piece of equipment able to handle multiple dynamic and static measurements to characterize viscoelasticity, glass transition, softening, crystallization, phase transformation and more, DMA 1 is ideal for both academic and manufacturing labs that handle many different types of materials under budget and time constraints. Mettler Toledo +1 800.638.8537 Columbus, OH Microbiologics Offers Big Six STEC Controls Microbiologics, Inc. has added six non-O157 serogroups of Shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains to their line of ready-to-use QC microorganism products. The six new STEC strains Microbiologics has introduced are the same six STEC serogroups that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) recently classified as adulterants in non-intact raw beef. Under USDA regulation, E. coli serogroups O26, O103, O45, O111, O121 and O145, also commonly referred to as the ‘Big 6 E. coli,’ are prohibited from raw ground beef, its components, and tenderized steaks. Testing laboratories need positive controls to validate, verify and monitor their methods, materials and equipment used to detect contamination of these STEC strains. Microbiologics, a global leader in producing biological reference material, is the first to offer the ‘Big 6 E. coli ’ strains in ready-to-use, convenient formats for quality control testing. Initially, Microbiologics is offering the STEC strains in qualitative KWIK-STIK™ and LYFO DISK® formats along with two convenient, prepackaged QC Microorganism Sets; one set includes the Big 6 STEC strains and the other set includes the Big 6 STEC strains plus serogroup O157. Microbiologics will expand their STEC offering in the coming months with the addition of a quantitative Epower™ format.
