The manual method for microbial enumeration tests, now more than 100 years old, is rife with potential errors:
Automated microbial detection and enumeration with the Growth Direct™ System drastically reduce the risk for errors by assigning imaging, plate transfer, and data reporting processes to pre-programmed technology.
Only Growth Direct helps you:
The interface between Growth Direct and your laboratory information management system (LIMS) allows for automatic reporting, reducing the risk of data entry errors.
Even with a sophisticated LIMS, manual microbial detection requires technicians to record the results of each sample. Automatic detection with Growth Direct creates instant records, which can be quickly viewed and analyzed through a variety of existing LIMS.
Growth Direct also operates as a standalone microbial testing instrument. For labs without LIMS, Growth Direct provides automatic enumeration, produces comprehensive reports, and generates alerts based on specified colony limits.
