Hygiena wins Applied Microbiology International Awards 2022

The Innovate Autosampler III from Hygiena® has been named Product of the Year at the Applied Microbiology International Awards in a glittering ceremony at London’s Science Museum on November 29th, 2022.

Organized by Applied Microbiology International, the awards celebrate the brightest minds in the field and promote the research, groups, projects, products and individuals who are shaping the future of applied microbiology.

The guest of honor was Professor Sir Jonathan Van-Tam MBE, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences at the University of Nottingham who was named an Honorary Fellow at the prestigious event.

The Product of the Year Award was presented to food safety testing leader Hygiena for its product, the Innovate Autosampler III. A walk-away automatic system used to expedite product sampling efficiency, the Innovate Autosampler III offers a fully digital interface intuitive for the operator and ready for future generations of software, with industry 4.0 components that provide increased safety and operational efficiency, giving real-time feedback about system operations.

Described as the next generation of product quality automation, the Innovate Autosampler III is purpose-built for Hygiena’s Innovate Microbial Screening system. The machine is capable of sampling up to 2,000 samples per hour and can handle any format of sample cartons, while onboard homogenization reduces the time required in the Innovate System to increase laboratory efficiency.

Its high-capacity components enable the system to run without interruption, enabling the users to ‘walk away’ and focus on more important activities.
