The Growth Direct® System, a rapid microbial method, is designed for QC testing requiring high capacity and speed. The rapid microbial testing applications include environmental monitoring, bioburden testing, water testing, and sterility testing.
The Rapid Microbial Method (RMM) that allows you to meet stringent regulatory testing demands faster while ensuring product quality and data integrity.
The high-volume testing often found in the combination of air, surface, and personnel monitoring can create headaches for busy labs using time-consuming manual processes. The Growth Direct® System enables fast, accurate enumeration and digitization, boosting your productivity while eliminating manual sample analysis and error-prone recordkeeping steps.
To test and analyze high volumes of water, the Growth Direct® System automates sample enumeration, tracking, and reporting. Our novel growth-based technology helps meet stringent regulatory requirements—integrating advanced robotic automation, powerful optical imaging, algorithmic vision analysis, and data management to ensure product quality and data integrity.
A critical QC step for contamination detection, bioburden testing can fall short of today's demands if you're still using traditional compendium methods. The Growth Direct® System automates incubation and reading of test samples for fast detection of microbial growth at a much earlier stage of colony development, while digitizing results to ensure data integrity.
The only fully automated, non-destructive platform for rapid sterility testing, the Growth Direct® Rapid Sterility System is designed to deliver a TTD (time-to-detect) in as little as 12 hours. Much faster than the traditional method requiring a 14-day endpoint incubation, it also provides final results in as little as 1-3 days.
The increasing complexity of biologics and sterile injectable drugs makes robust contaminant testing a must to ensure manufacturing uptime and needed drug supplies. However, this complexity also makes biologics susceptible to microbial contamination, lengthy investigations, and recalls. The Growth Direct®System can help you accelerate production, meet stringent quality requirements, and maximize capacity to meet growing global demand.
Cell & Gene Therapies
New therapies must strike a balance between unique complexities and urgent turnaround from sample collection to patient infusion. Setting new standards for automation, sterility, speed, and quality, the Growth Direct®System can help accelerate identification, resolution, and final QC micro results to speed release of life-saving therapeutics—while positively impacting your bottom line, reputation, and competitiveness.
