Overall, we are very satisfied with the platform. It is a mainstay of our workflow.
We use the Logos QUANTOM Tx (QTx) to enumerate various species of bacteria grown in liquid media. Prior to purchasing the QTx, enumeration was done via the spread-plate method. The rapid quantitation afforded by the QTx allows us to have a result in as little as 30 minutes, compared to 3 days for the spread-plate method. We have also found the QTx useful for determining the proportion of live/dead cells within a sample. The simplicity and ease of use of the QTx allows for rapid training of new operators and excellent repeatability. In addition, Logos’ after-sales service has been exceptional.
