Nested Isolation Webinar

Germ-free and gnotobiotic housing can be expensive to maintain, limiting its accessibility and hindering research in critical fields.

What if you could run your own gnotobiotic research colony for a fraction of the cost and labor, while achieving faster results?

Nested Isolators: A Low-Cost Gnotobiotic Housing Strategy

Nested isolation – or NesTiso – is a technique that not only delivers the same results as a full gnotobiotic core, but with commonly accessible equipment and dramatically improved usability. We’ll show you how it works in this free Taconic Biosciences webinar.

Watch On-Demand and you will learn:
  • How NesTiso makes gnotobiotic research simple and practical

  • How to inexpensively verify the germ-free status of your models

  • How the portability of NesTiso systems accelerate gnotobiotic research
