About Us

Rapid Micro Biosystems provides innovative products for faster detection of microbial contamination in the manufacture of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and personal care products.

The Company's Growth DirectTM System detects contamination earlier, delivering compelling economic benefits to manufacturers, while improving their quality process. The Growth Direct System is the first and only automated system that addresses all key microbial QC applications and fits with current regulatory practices, a critical accelerator for adoption. Automated analysis 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.

Rapid Micro Biosystems' proprietary technology, based on the detection of natural auto-fluorescence, was invented by the company's founder, Dr. Don Straus Ph.D.

Rapid Micro Biosystems is headquartered in Lowell, Massachusetts with operations in Lowell, Massachusetts and Freising, Germany.
