Rapid Micro Biosystems is proud to be an exhibiting sponsor at booth #421.
In addition, two scientists from Rapid Micro Biosystems will be presenting posters during the event.
Presented by Sommer Vogel, this poster covers the rapid detection of stressed microorganisms. This poster will describe the detection of stressed organisms using the Growth DirectTM Sterility Test, showing that final results can be obtained within seven days. The data presented will include stressors such as heat, desiccation and disinfectants, applied to a variety of organisms including bacterial spores, mold spores, human-associated microorganisms and common environmental contaminants. Viewers will come to understand the physiological changes that occur in stressed microorganisms, and how those changes can potentially affect their manufacturing processes and sterility tests.
This poster, presented by Andy Sage, discusses a one-step differential lysis method. The method selectively digests mammalian cells while not affecting contaminant microbes. This technique has effectively lysed 10 mL cell cultures samples of up to 1 x 108 cell / mL and tested them using membrane filtration. In fact, testing has exhibited equivalent recovery of spiked test microbes and control samples. The method allow larger volumes of mammalian cell culture samples to be filtered and tested using a rapid method leveraging membrane filtration for sample preparation versus traditional spread plating.
