Environmental Monitoring System Improves Efficiency
The Growth Direct System from Rapid Micro Biosystems i s designed to automate the incubation, detection, enumeration, and reporting steps for environmental monitoring and bioburden applications in pharmaceutical quality control laboratories. The technology is based on the detection of the natural auto-fluorescence of microorganisms, which requires no additional reagents to detect growing colonies. According to the company, the system can be located near manufacturing facilites, which increases efficiency and reduces the travel risk with samples.
