In use, a suspension of the organism is created using liquid included in the vial, which is then reintroduced into the vial and shaken with the beads to coat them. The liquid is then withdrawn with an accessory fine tip pasteur pipette and discarded. The coated beads can then be cryopreserved. Recovery is undertaken by aseptically removing a bead and rolling onto plated medium using an inoculating needle or placing in broth and incubating.
In freezer card box of 80 mixed, matching, colour-coded vials with beads and caps in blue, green, red, white and yellow.
