HUBBARD, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 24, 2014--NanoLogix Inc. (OTCBB: NNLX ), an innovator in the rapid detection, identification of live bacteria, and determination of their antibiotic resistance and sensitivity, announces that a New World Standard for Petri plate shelf life and storage conditions has been established by NanoLogix. The Company has been informed that ongoing tests by the world’s largest private Research and Development corporation have shown NanoLogix Tryptic Soy Agar (TSA) plates packed in exclusive, patented FlatPack® packaging for 19 months performing as well as one-week old competitor’s plates. With this milestone, NanoLogix petri plate shelf life has reached nearly 10 times the competition’s room temperature shelf life of slightly over 2 months and 5 times the competition’s normal cold-storage shelf life. Prior to this study, the standard for shelf life of TSA petri plates was for cold storage only, for a period of 3-1/2 months. In an additional milestone reached in internal Company cold storage tests, NanoLogix TSA petri plates are approaching three years on the shelf with no loss of viability from when first manufactured.
