Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product makes antibiotic resistance tests very easy We use the BBL cartridges with this dispenser and have not had any real jamming problems. Initially, after heavy use, we had some jamming issues, but I have found that if you wipe the channels with a cotton swab and isopropyl alcohol it will prevent jamming. I do this about once a semester and have had no jamming issues in the past 4 years. We use these 4 different campuses and have had no problems. This product is a fast effective way to do multiple antibiotic resistance tests at once. It makes for easy comparison of how a single bacteria will react with different antibiotics. We have at least 6 microbiology classes running every semester. This has been very useful.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Jams up regularly I would NOT recommend these for educational use. For the price of $600, these should work flawlessly. Instead they jam up constantly, especially when a student hesitates on the handle. When that happens, the little metal tab in the back will not pop back out, and if a disc happens to get stuck somewhere in the very intricate mechanisms, your cute yellow dispenser will cease to function. I've called the manufacturer for repair advice and the conversation went something like this: "DON'T take the machine apart!" "Oh, your 1 year warranty has already expired? Then you might as well take it apart, you have nothing to lose. Good luck!" As it happens, luck has been on my side and I've been able to repair these guys a few times. However, I would NEVER purchase them again, even if our school ever had the funding for such an overpriced item (which we probably won't).
