The Growth Direct™ System leverages a single technology to perform common microbiology tests. With initial results in hours and final results in half the time of traditional methods, the system automates the tedious, manual enumeration steps associated with traditional microbial Quality Control.
Four tests in a single device
The Growth Direct™ System manages testing for Sterility, Environmental Monitoring, Water and Bioburden in a single instrument. Sample preparation mirrors the current methods.
Non-Destructive results in half the time
The system leverages proven detection technology to enumerate growing colonies without the use or reagents. Final results are typically in about half the time of the existing method.
Designed with high throughput in mind, the system contains two incubators with a total incubation capacity up to 700 cassettes. Robotics concurrently loads, incubates and enumerates samples, providing the maximum throughput in minimal space.
Integration to LIMS
The Growth Direct™ System seamlessly integrates into existing laboratory information management systems, accelerating the availability of sample data beyond the lab and eliminating any keying errors associated with manual sample processing.
Respond to positives as soon as they are found. Configurable action and alert limits provide emails and mobile alerts in the event of out of specification samples.
