Decon 90 Laboratory Cleaner

Laboratory Cleaning Agent

Decon 90 is the leading surface active cleaning agent and/or radioactive decontaminant for laboratory, medical and industrial applications and is available in 1-Litre and 5-Litre sizes. Decon 90 cleaning agent is supplied in high-density polyethene containers, with tamper evident screw-on caps.

This laboratory cleaner is supplied as a liquid concentrate for dilution with water (2% to 5% solution of Decon 90 with water) and is used for both manual cleaning and use in ultrasonic cleaning baths. Problem contaminates can be treated by increasing the solution strength.

Method of Use

• The items which need cleaning must be immersed fully into the solution and left to soak for a minimum of 2 hours. Depending on the degree and tenacity of the soiling, the item can be left to soak for up to a maximum of 24 hours.

• By heating the solution 40°C to 50°C can reduce the cleaning time or alternatively use an ultrasonic cleaning bath.

• To ensure removal of all traces of contamination/cleaning agent, it is recommended that three agitated rinses in water *** are carried out and any cleaned items are rinsed thoroughly and dried.

UriStain™ – for the Microscopic Examination of Urine Sediment

UriStain™ is a urine sediment stain, intended for staining centrifuged urine sediment and used for the examination of WBCs, RBCs, bacteria, yeast and casts. The stain contains various dyes that aid in differentiating the abnormal cellular elements found in urine. UriStain is a ‘one solution’ modification of the Sternheimer and Malvin procedure which compares directly to the Sedi-Stain product.

Sediment Stain – A Valuable Diagnostic Technique

Microscopic examination of urinary sediment is a rapid, easy-to-perform diagnostic procedure that can provide important information to the clinician. Aside from taking an actual tissue biopsy of the kidney, it is widely recognised that the microscopic findings of the urinary sediment are a reliable and valuable diagnostic technique which will give a clear indicator of intrinsic renal disease.

StatSpin OvaTube

StatSpin OvaTube

Ova and Parasite Detection System

In-Clinic Parasite Detection Test Kit

OvaTube is the ideal in-clinic parasite detection test kit which is suitable for companion and small animals and has been developed for use in veterinary hospitals, practices and reference laboratories. In a situation where an animal has internal parasites or a particular parasite, the concentration flotation technique is recommended. Particularly the centrifugal technique, for the maximum yield of ova and oocysts.

Worm Egg Detection Method For Companion And Small Animals

The basic principle uses a flotation solution of special Specific Gravity in which the faecal sample is mixed and poured into a centrifuge tube. This can then be incubated vertically on the bench for up to 10-15 minutes. However, it is proven that if the tube is centrifuged at slow speed for a few minutes, the accuracy is greatly improved. Importantly, centrifugation forces heavy debris to the bottom of the tube; allows flotation of the ova and prevents debris from obscuring the final microscopic examination. OvaTube together with our ready-made Vetlab Flotation Solution is ideal for performing both techniques.

OvaTube – The Perfect In-Clinic Solution: fast easy and clean

The StatSpin OvaTube is the first centrifugation method that is easy and fast without any mess, with a simple coring tool to obtain a sample. Just add the sample to the tube and mix with standard flotation fluid. Centrifuge in either a fixed angle or horizontal centrifuge, remove the tube, add a coverslip, and twist. In just a few minutes results are ready to read.

LipoClear Tubes

LipoClear – Lipaemic Clearing Reagent

Lipaemia, or gross elevations of serum/plasma lipoproteins, can be instantly recognised by turbidity in the sample which can cause interference in some analytical methodologies using photometric measurement principles.

Removal of lipaemia can be difficult and complicated by conventional methods. LipoClear tubes, however, offer a quick, simple and safe solution for removing lipaemia without affecting the measurement of other major analytes including enzymes.

Using LipoClear Tubes

LipoClear Tubes are 1.5ml microcentrifuge tubes pre-filled with the LipoClear reagent. LipoClear is a convenient, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic liquid polymer reagent which clears lipaemic serum or plasma after mixing and centrifugation.

Simple Procedure

The simple procedure involves pipetting 0.5ml of sample into a LipoClear Tube, mixing and leaving for 5 minutes at room temperature, and then centrifuging. Ideally, centrifuges spinning at 10,000G or more can be used and will allow separation and clearing in 2 minutes. Low-speed centrifuge, for example, 2000G will need 20 minutes for spinning LipoClear Tubes.

After centrifuging, the cleared sample must be removed for analysis. However, please note that all results must be multiplied by 1.2 to compensate for the sample dilution. This is a refrigerated product and is supplied in pack sizes of 10 or 40 1.5ml microcentrifuge tubes.

Faecal Flotation Solutions

Faecal Flotation Solutions

Ready-made Faecal Flotation Solutions

Standard S.G. or Made to your Specific Requirements

(Sodium Nitrate & Zinc Sulphate)

Livestock & Companion AnimalsParasitology

Examination of faeces from livestock and companion animals for parasite eggs and oocysts is an important diagnostic procedure in most veterinary practices and laboratories. One of the most common techniques uses the concept of floating parasite eggs to the surface of a special solution in order to be detected under the microscope.

Specific Gravity

Basically, this is achieved by increasing the density or specific gravity (S.G.) by dissolving certain salts in water. The S.G. has to be optimised in order to allow parasite eggs to float and faecal debris to sink. It is generally recognised that the S.G. of faecal flotation solutions should be within the range 1.18 to 1.27 to detect most (but not all) ova.

Vetlab Supplies Ready-made Faecal Flotation Solutions

We offer ready-made faecal flotation solution of either Sodium Nitrate or Zinc Sulphate both of S.G. of 1.200. These solutions are the most popular and recommended for general use. We offer both solutions to accommodate personal choice, although we find that our Sodium Nitrate Solution has less shrinkage effect on Giardia Cysts. However, we can make solutions of different S.G. values to personal order. These solutions are ideal for use with our ‘OvaTube‘ and McMaster slides.
