Demeter is designed to streamline the media preparation process in commercial food testing labs. It automates the traditionally manual, dehydrated media reagent preparation step in labs for increased testing throughput and accuracy. The system records the volumetric amounts and temperatures (NIST traceable) used in a test then feeds that information into a laboratory information management system, streamlining recordkeeping for regulatory compliance. Demeter has a printer that produces a label for pasting into lab notebooks, and a flash drive for recording the most recent test results, with nonvolatile storage as a backup. The system is also self-sterilizing. It’s suited for the media preparation and testing of a variety of pathogens, including E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella.
