Bioburden Testing

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 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 therapeuticswhile positively impacting your bottom line, reputation, and competitiveness.
