We are excited to announce to release of GrowthRates 5.0 today with enhanced functionality and support for more plate reader formats!
We’ve just released a new companion tool for the GrowthRates program called CGR2 (Compare GrowthRates), available today for licensing.
CGR2 is a statistical program specifically designed to assess the results of a growth rate experiment that has been analyzed using the GrowthRates program.
Learn about the origins of the GrowthRates program, including the resulting published paper, which has been cited more than 300 times.
At a Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution meeting in 2012, Dr. Hall met a graduate student named Hande Acar and spent some time discussing her work in the lab at the Institute of Science & Technology Austria. She described the wonderful new microplate reader they were using to monitor the growth of bacterial cultures. The reader could automatically follow the growth of 96 cultures for hours, or overnight, and report the density of each culture at specified reading intervals.
The problem that Hande encountered was that it took days to do the calculations that would turn the resulting raw data into useful growth rates.
We’ve been busy publishing papers and working on software tools that make it easier to analyze microbial growth for industries such as beer brewing, production of high-value industrial chemicals, development of analytical devices for screening infections, and assessing contamination of… Read More ›
