MediaBox™ liquid solutions encompass many standard broths and buffers available in 5, 10 and 20 liter box formats. The product is shipped to your door in convenient packaging, ready to use, with a Certificate of Analysis included.

MediaBox fits for any microbiology lab.

MediaBox can fit your workflow! A good option is to use MediaBox by itself and gravity feed your media from the easy to handle box. A better option is to use our EZ-Dispense peristaltic pump with MediaBox to dispense your media with an electronically controlled dispensing wand. The best option is to use our EZ-Flow gravimetric diluters to enable the automatic dilution of the sample with perfect reliability. No weighing the sample, no manually adding diluent.
