TT No. 304: Simple Impeller with Fast Transfer Technique (SLIM-FaTT) in Liquid Culture System

The liquid culture system has been established in laboratories and MPOB since 1999 (Tarmizi et al., 2003). Various technologies have been developed to further improve the system (Tarmizi and Zaiton, 2005). The two-in-one MPOB Simple Impeller (2-in- 1 MoSLIM) was developed as a new process to provide simultaneous aeration and agitation (two-in-one) for establishment, maintenance […]

TT No. 303: Two-in-One MPOB- Simple Impeller (2-in-1 Mo-SLIM) in Liquid Culture System

Conventional liquid culture of cells is limited by the size of the flasks or shakers (Tarmizi, 2002). To scale-up, bioreactor or special commercial flasks are used (Tarmizi et al., 2003). These systems are expensive. Furthermore,mostofthem usedifferent devices for agitation and aeration. To address this issue, the two-in-one MPOB simple impeller (2-in-1 MoSLIM) was developed to […]

TS No. 17: Batch and Continuous Frying Testing Services

Three frying facilities are available in MPOB, i.e. pressure, open fryers (batch) and pilot plant continuous fryers (Figure 1). The pressure fryer is commonly used for products such as breaded chicken to retain its juiciness while the open fryer is more for products to be eaten instantly such as French fries, chicken and fish nuggets. […]

TS No. 16: Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis for Studying the Microbial Population

Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) is a new genetic fingerprinting technique for examining a microbial population based on genetic markers. The vast majority, or 80%, of microbes are not yet isolated and identified due to lack of knowledge on how they survive and grow in their habitats. The purpose of DGGE is to monitor changes in […]

TS No. 15: MicrobeLynx- for Identification of Bacterial Species

MicrobeLynx™ in combination with bio-informati c s provides a powerful tool for determining the species and typing of microorganisms. This massMfingerprinting technique for bacteria offers greater sensitivity, selectivity and speed of analysis compared to classical identification methods. The technology applies biopolymer mass spectrometry techniques to analyses ofintact bacteria and actinomycetes for rapid fingerprinting. The entire […]
