don’t need superpowers but smart tools to safely transfer filters onto agar plates without using forceps.

Forceps-free, Effortless Membrane Transfer per “Magic Lid”: With Microsart®@filter and Microsart®@media.

No forceps, no forces – it’s the “Magic Lid” that does the trick. Due to an integrated adhesive ring in the lid, it effortlessly affixes the membrane and positions it correctly on the agar plate. With a turn, it’s locked, then just incubate and count as usual. A well-conceived system no one else can offer you. Because real heroes deserve only the best.
