Don't Waste Your Time with Manual Serial Dilutions! Shake Up Convention with Dilucup.

There are 672 cups (2 mylar bags of 336 cups) in a standard box and the total weight is about 19 pounds.

Diluents available in Dilucups™:

  • MRD: Maximum Recovery Diluent (also called Tryptone-Salt or Peptone-Salt)
  • BPW: Buffered Peptone Water
  • NACL: Saline solution
  • BFD: Butterfield’s Phosphate Buffer- coming soon

The typical shelf life is about 20 months. Before opening the mylar bag, you can store the diluents at room temperature. Once the mylar packaging has been opened, the recommended storage is 2-8°C and the product should be used within 60 days.

All Dilucup Elegance product is exposed to irradiation and QC tested before the release of any batch.

The cups are made of polyethylene (PET) and this material is identical to the recyclable plastic used for water or soda bottles.

The top tray of the Dilushaker is removable and can be autoclaved, or wiped down with the sanitizer of your choice.
