Microgen Bioproducts has become a leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of diagnostic rapid testing products which hospital laboratories use to detect and diagnose disease and food laboratories use to detect dangerous bacteria. The product range compromises a comprehensive list of quality diagnostic products in the fields of microbiology, serology, haematology, bacteriology and virology.

Microgen has developed a revolutionary technology for the processing of food samples for microbiological analysis. 

The Puslfier employs a revolutionary patented technology for the processing of food samples. Unlike paddle-type instruments the Pulsifier utilises a oscillating action, which drives microbes from the food sample into the aqueous phase, with minimal disruption of the food matrix, producing a sample more suitable for rapid microbiology methods and minimises bag breakage, even with hard foods.
