Wagtech Potaflex

  • PTW10050

The Potaflex offers dedicated testing of microbiological water quality in a fixed site laboratory. The incubator features a unique Flexi-rack system that can accommodate a variety of media options. Operators can choose to use either the standard aluminium petri dishes supplied with Wagtech kits that work with MLSB media, or pre-prepared NutriDisks that require less preparation and offer a wide range of bacteria to be enumerated.
