Media Preparation and Distribution

Our Media facility produces approximately 90,000 plates, 100,000 tubes and 10,000 flasks of culture media, biochemical stains and other products annually. Altogether, we prepare approximately 60 per cent of the media that we use in-house.

In addition to providing for our own use, we also supply media to several faculties at Dalhousie University.

We are committed to supporting diagnostic microbiology laboratories in Nova Scotia that have difficulty obtaining media from other commercial sources, as well we supply the Medical Laboratory Technology Program at the Nova Scotia Community College.
