Eddy Jet 2- Spiral Plater
The Best Spiral Plater just got Better! Quicker, Quieter and more Robust!
The all new Eddy Jet 2 Spiral Plating System is a color screen touch screen fully programmable spiral inoculation instrument with accuracy and reproducibility of greater than 99%. The Eddy Jet 2 Spiral Plater uses a unique gamma-Irradiated disposable micro-syringe for each new sample, eliminating cross-contamination and the need for a vacuum source or washing steps.
Since the samples come in contact only with the disposable low cost micro-syringe throughout the process, there is absolutely no risk of carryover of sanitizing chemicals, such as hypochlorite.
The tips are supplied with fully traceable quality control documentation. These sterile, precise micro-syringes (with opening size of 0.7mm) are your keys to confidence that you’ll get an accurate inoculation and no contamination on every plate that you process with the Eddy Jet 2 Spiral Plater.
Significant savings can be made in material costs and workers' time by using the Eddy Jet 2 Spiral Plater. Plates are processed in well under 1 minute; no time consuming washing cycle; no time consuming preparation and replacement of washing chemical solutions; no time consuming maintenance of a vacuum pumping system; no down time due to vacuum failure.

We recently switched from another brand of spiral plater to the Eddy Jet. While doing our correlation study we ran both units simultaneously and quickly noticed that we were starting the 3rd sample on the Eddy Jet while the 1st sample finished on the other brand. With our sample volume, this equates to a significant time savings
The Eddy Jet is the most user friendly Spiral Plater I have ever used. Unlike other units, we don ' t need to think twice before operating it. The disposable syringes and not having a vacuum pump are great plus for us. We like its functionality very much.
We have recently purchased our 2nd Eddy-Jet after 10 years of an Eddy-Jet Spiral plater working at our lab. As a 7 year Eddy-Jet user myself, the time savings we get as a result of the 3 fold dilution and the reliability of the unit are the major benefits for us
We had it up and running within an hour of delivery. It arrived with several clinical samples, all of which were plated on the new machine. Everything was fairly intuitive even without reading any directions! We have used every day since. It takes about the same length of time as our old machine, but is much simpler and more fool proof even for complete novices (new students in the lab).
