Have a Question?

The high-volume testing often found in the combination of air, surface, and personnel monitoring can create headaches for busy labs. Testing and analyzing samples for microbial environmental monitoring (EM) quality control is typically a time-consuming, manual process. Lab personnel must spend precious time on subjective enumeration, repetitive sample analysis, and error-prone recordkeeping steps.

The Growth Direct® System overcomes these challenges, integrating novel growth-based technology with advanced robotic automation, powerful optical imaging, algorithmic vision analysis, and data management. The synergy of these innovations results in fast, accurate enumeration and digitization that can boost productivity in your microbial QC lab while eliminating manual sample analysis and recordkeeping.

Achieve Accurate Results Quickly

Faster Detection and Automated Reporting

The Growth Direct® System automates the incubation and reading of test samples. The system is able to accurately detect and enumerate microbial growth at a much earlier stage of colony development. Because testing is non-destructive, requiring no reagents, positive samples can continue to incubate and be sent to a microbial identification system for further analysis.

This rapid microbial method (RMM) adopts the best aspects of current EM tests for air, surface, and personnel monitoring to achieve accurate results more efficiently. You can be confident that results are comparable to test methods for all organisms, surfaces, and disinfectants. Learn about our incubation strategy and media choice.
