    Speedy Breedy - a need for speed

    speedy breedy logo

    Speedy Breedy is an easy to use, compact portable, precision respirometer and monitor of microbial activity that has been designed for both industrial applications and lab research.

    Speedy Breedy can be used:

    Test raw ingredients and finished goods for contamination in beer and beverages
    Shorten the time for positive release in food processing
    Test for contamination in drinking water or process water in industrial applications
    Test for contamination in pharmaceutical, household and hygiene products
    Test effectiveness of decontamination processes following wet strip of all forms of equipment
    Test sterility of food and beverage packaging
    Identify the presence of bacteria in oil and paint
    Test potentially detrimental contaminants, growth and metabolic promoters or inhibitors
    Assist researchers to develop products and techniques where the presence or absence of bacteria needs to be understood, prevented or encouraged

    speedy large

    Speedy Breedy is a single (test versus control or aerobic plus anaerobic), or dual sample, two chamber instrument. Speedy Breedy maintains culture conditions within purpose designed, disposable culture vessels. Samples are inoculated into the culture vessel and Speedy Breedy closely controls growth conditions to a pre-determined protocol in order to facilitate rapid replication of cells or microbes.

    Speedy Breedy's robust, disposable 50 ml culture vessel eliminates the need for cleaning of potentially hazardous bottles. Culture vessels are provided sterile, empty or pre-filled with a range of dry media.

    Speedy Breedy can be used independently or connected to a PC. Using the PC users can design and download pre-determined protocols to Speedy Breedy and upload experimental results for analysis. Speedy Breedy also has a removable SD card for field research. Connecting Speedy Breedy to a PC enables data visualization so that users can monitor experiments in near real time.


    • - Two temperature-controlled testing chambers
    • - Purpose designed culture vessels with advanced mixing for optimised growth and detection of microbial activity
    • - Sealed, easy to populate culture chambers
    • - Suitable for use with a wide range of sample types
    • - Culture vessels come empty or pre-filled with a range of dry media
    • - Temperature controlled -5 below ambient to 44 degrees
    • - A highly sensitive, non-invasive detection system that delivers rapid results
    • - Barrier protected sensors for reliability and safety
    • - PC (Windows compatible) software that enables near real time visualisation of experiments when connected to Speedy Breedy
    • - Customised protocols designed off-line and downloaded to Speedy Breedy
    • - Can be used independently for field research or in the lab connected to a PC
    • - Enables visualisation of microbial activity in near real time
    • - Does not require a large capital investment
    • - Configurable to allow for comparative testing using a test vs. control protocol or two experiments
    • - Speedy Breedy's robust, disposable culture vessels eliminate the need for cleaning of potentially hazardous bottles
    • - On board 2GB SD card for experiment results storage
    • - USB connection

    • Software

    Speedy Breedy turns microbial activity into data. When Speedy Breedy is connected to a PC the experiment is visualised in near real time as a graph.

    Speedy Breedy comes pre-loaded with standard protocols that are designed to search for a "significant event";, that is when there is a significant pressure change in the headspace of the culture vessel, meaning there is microbial activity inside the culture chamber.

    Speedy Breedy's Windows compatible software is intuitive and easy to use. Customers can design their own protocols on the PC and download them to Speedy Breedy. Protocols enable the user to set the incubation temperature (between 5 below ambient and 44 degrees), vary the time pressure readings are taken and the speed at which the mixing paddles rotate inside the culture vessel.

    Experimental data can be uploaded from Speedy Breedy's SD card to the PC for archiving and further analysis.

    How Speedy Breedy Works

    Speedy Breedy is a portable, sensitive, precision respirometer which detects and monitors microbial activity. Detection of microbial activity is determined as a consequence of pressure transients relating to gaseous exchanges within a closed culture vessel of 50 ml working volume, as a result of microbial respiration.

    Samples are added to a culture vessel containing a suitable medium and where present, contaminating microorganisms begin to grow. Speedy Breedy has advanced mixing technology that homogenises the culture conditions for rapid growth of microbes and efficiently converts gaseous changes in the culture medium into pressure variances in the headspace, therefore allowing detection of pressure transients due to metabolic processes where microbes are present.

    Continuous data collected by the Speedy Breedy is analyzed in real time to provide pressure transients. Detection algorithms process these pressure transients to alert when significant changes have taken place.

    Speedy Breedy measures both positive and negative pressure meaning that monitoring can be performed on a range of microbial processes reacting to differing conditions within the culture chamber.

    ProtoGel promotion

    EC895R-gentaurProtoGel is a stabilized ready-to-use, 30% (w/v) acrylamide solution, with the cross-linker, methylene bisacrylamide (37.5:1 ratio), in distilled/deionized water. ProtoGel results in the same polyacrylamide gels that you are now accustomed to preparing, because it is identical to your own solutions. With ProtoGel, you can now prepare the same gel faster, easier, safer, and more reliably. All you need to do is pour and use.

    ProtoGel Buffer (sieving gel buffer) and ProtoGel Stacking Buffer compliment ProtoGel by providing ready-to-use solutions of non-monomeric components. By using ProtoGel Buffer and ProtoGel Stacking Buffer, all you need to add is ammonium persulfate and TEMED to complete the preparation of SDS-PAGE separating and stacking gels. ProtoGel Buffer and ProtoGel Stacking Buffer are designed as optional replacements for the additional solid components usually required when preparing ProtoGel. ProtoGel Buffer can be used to prepare any percentage gel desired.

    Using PureEXO kits is much more productive than ultracentrifugation, in terms of both purity and yeild. When extracting exosomal RNA, the PureExo kit produces nearly 4 times better results than the standart ultracentifugation protocols. This was proven using the NanoDrop 8000 spectrophotometer.

    grafika ENG

    PureExo kits are not only cheaper, but also superior to other currently available kits: it guarantees 95% exosome purity and the exosomes themselves are homogeneous, spherical and intact. No more will you have to endure the countless sizes, irregular shapes and the overly damaged exosomes that other kits eventually cause.

    The purity of the yield is verified by Exosomal protein marker, which enhances the accuracy and sensitivity to detect biomarkers carried by exosomes.

    Two verions of kits are available:
