Developed by the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta and the Alabama State Department of Public Health as a result of their search for an improved isolation system.

The Gono-Pak method consists of using smeared Thayer-Martin media in a standard 100mm Petri dish enclosed in a specially made Whirl-Pak® bag with a CO2 pill. The CO2 pill liberates the needed CO2 atmosphere for the proper growth of the Neisseria gonorrhoeae. This specially made bag may be used in two different ways. Where CO2 incubators are not available in the system, the smeared Petri dish is placed in the bag with a CO2 pill and then incubated. The CO2 remains in the bag sufficiently long to provide the maximum growth of the organisms if present.

Where CO2 incubators are available, Gono bags are ideal for the collector to use to transport smeared plates to the laboratory, or to send the plates by mail or UPS.

Incubator Rack
