Arachem Launched Lab M Dehydrated Culturing Media in Malaysia

Lab M Dehydrated culture media was launched in January 2015, presented by Arachem (M) Sdn Bhd, the scientific and engineering company in Malaysia. 

After years of extensive research and continuous improvement, Lab M has introduced a series of microbiological culture media that was well-developed into tools that benefit microbiology labs in many ways. Lab M launched an extensive range of microbiological culture media, supplements, immunomagnetic separation techniques and proficiency testing systems that are used and compatible with laboratories around the world.

Lab M products cover all areas of microbiology, the brands are µPREP™, Pinnacle™ pre-poured plates, CaptivateTM immunomagnetic separation and HarlequinTM  chromogenic media. These newly launched products bring convenience to microbiology labs because they can be used straight from shelf with only little need for refrigeration or special storage. These products are waste-free and they have longer shelf-life as compared to other media. With these products, specialists or scientists are allowed to control sensitive and non-autoclavable components easily.


µPREP™ is the ready-to-reconstitute media for salmonellae and primary enrichment media. The 2 main products are the µPREP™ BPW (ISO) and µPREP™ Half Fraser Broth ISO (+FAC). Pinnacle™ carries various types of pre-poured plates for the isolation of different kinds or microorganism. CaptivateTMis a range of antibody coated paramagnetic particles for the specific immunomagnetic separation (IMS) of microorganisms. Lab M realized the importance of antibody in the microbiological immunomagnetic separation process to separate target bacteria from enrichment culture. Therefore, IMS was invented to increase the sensitivity of the system and to produce faster result as compared to standard protocols. As for HarlequinTMchromogenic media, it detects specific enzyme activities to isolate and enumerate target micro-organisms rapidly and accurately.

Lab M products comply with ISO requirements in the food industry. This proves Arachem’s professionalism in the scientific sectors and its commitment to serve the industry with the best quality.
