Automated analysis in microbiology eliminates error-prone manual steps and saves labor; rapidly detecting contamination enables manufacturers to reduce inventory carrying costs, shorten manufacturing cycle time, and reduce product losses, delivering significant cost savings and increased operational efficiency. The Growth Direct™ System detects contamination earlier, delivering compelling economic benefits to manufacturers, while improving their quality process. The Growth Direct System is an automated rapid enumeration and reporting system for microbial quality control environmental monitoring, sterility and bioburden testing.

The Growth Direct System uses proprietary digital imaging technology that automatically enumerates microcolonies days earlier than the traditional visual plate counting methods. The system captures the native fluorescence (autofluorescence) that is emitted by all living cells. By detecting microcolonies composed of a small number of cells, the Growth Direct test can start to detection microbial growth in a matter of hours with final results in half the time of the traditional, visual methods. Because the test is non-destructive, colonies are available for identification without the need for a re-culture step.

Rapid Micro Biosystems regularly hosts hands-on workshops showcasing the Growth Direct™ System. Visit www.rapidmicrobio.com/workshops for more details.
