The Growth Direct™ System for Environmental Monitoring revolutionizes the testing and analysis of samples for microbial environmental monitoring quality control. The system automates the high volume testing typically found in the combination of air, surface and personnel monitoring.
Two results in one
The device provides a positive result in hours, and final results in half the time of the compendial method. The test is also non-destructive. These characteristics allow quality control teams to react quickly to any potential contamination, but still have access to both the final CFU counts for analysis and the positive sample for microbial identification.
Designed with high throughput in mind, the system contains two incubators with a total incubation capacity of over 700 environmental monitoring cassettes. Robotics concurrently load, incubate and analyze samples, providing the maximum throughput in minimal space.
Integration to LIMS
The Growth Direct™ for Environmental Monitoring 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.
The system alerts users immediately via email or text message when samples are out of conformance, while trending analysis uncovers any developing issues.
