Accugenix is a leading North American cGMP-compliant contract laboratory specializing in identification and
characterization of microorganisms. Accugenix uses the latest advances in DNA sequencing and molecular techniques to provide their clients with the most accurate, rapid
and cost-effective identifications possible. Their extensive microorganism database is geared towards environmental isolates commonly found in pharmaceutical and
biotechnology manufacturing, but among others, they also serve cosmetic, chemical, food and public health
microbiologists. Customer needs are a priority for
Accugenix. They offer identifications based on the
turnaround time required by the customer. Working with genetic-based techniques, Accugenix can offer results
in as little as one day and up to twenty-eight days. They can also work with a very small amount of organism as well
as with nonviable organisms. This is one of the advantages of employing genetic-based identification techniques.
Accugenix provides their customers with extensive
reports detailing phylogenetic information about the
microorganisms. They also offer educational seminars
on genetic-based identification techniques, strain
characterization and the advantages of outsourcing
microbial identifications. Genetic-based identifications are not new to Accugenix; they have been performing and perfecting them for years. Consider Accugenix for all
your bacterial, yeast and mold identifications.

Hohokus, NJ 07423
Booth # 525
Representative: Michael Elkas
Atomizing Systems provides high-pressure water fog systems using ultrapure water for controlling humidity in cleanroom environments at ±1 percent accuracy without compressed air. The proportionally controlled, multistage fogging system can inject 1 to 12 GPM (as required) with .75 to 10 horsepower with soft-start, variable frequency technology. The low-noise, low-RPM direct-drive fog systems offer redundant systems for any cleanroom environment with minimal vibration utilizing inertia bases where required. The guaranteed nonwearing Cold Fog nozzles feature laser-drilled, ruby-orifices with tolerances to ± .0004 for consistent water flow from every nozzle. Cold Fog systems use small diameter, 1/2” O.D., specially cleaned, 316 type stainless-steel nozzle lines within air handlers for minimal air flow disruption. Large compressed air piping is eliminated when high-pressure fog is utilized in new construction or retrofits, and compressor costs for energy, maintenance and air filtration are eliminated. Pumps can be centrally located and multiple zones can be easily and accurately controlled from a single high-pressure pump station.
