Sept 26th, 2013 - MicroDish in Roscoff Marine Research Station
MicroDish participated in the MaCUMBA and ASSEMBLE sampling activities at the Station Biologique de Roscoff in late September. These EU FP7 activities allowed testing and comparison of cultivation techniques for marine microorganisms. MicroDish, with greatly appreciated help from the staff of the research station, placed cultivation chambers in the natural environment for long term testing of enrichment culture. We also used MDCC to isolate bacteria from sponges. The MaCUMBA program allowed a productive dialogue between industrial and academic partners including discussions as to which technologies and target organisms have greatest value.
May 17, 2013 - MicroDish BV receives subsidy to test the Biochamber at the Station Biologique de Roscoff
Microdish BV will perform several tests at the marine “Station Biologique de Roscoff”, France, subsidized by the EU (FP7) program ASSEMBLE. The aim is to test a new workflow for the in situ enrichment of novel marine microorganisms using the newly developed MicroDish Biochamber.

Cell culture is a critical part of diagnostics, biotechnology and contributes to the quality of health and our environment. There is a strong need to develop faster, more automatable methods of growing and assaying cells.
To take the example of microbiology, the classic method of growing bacteria and fungi is the Petri dish that is hardly changed in centuries. The Petri dish was developed in an era of low throughput and is designed for skilled manual labour. We present a set of advanced disposable culture formats - just click on the movie for an idea of what we can achieve for your laboratory.
