Growth Direct Benefits

Empower your lab with the power of automation

Your manufacturing facilities face ever-increasing demand for greater production capacity. This drives up test volume in your microbiology quality control (QC) lab, where you must achieve reliable results and regulatory-compliant documentation, all with limited resources.

The challenge: current compendial testing methods, which just aren’t reliable. Compendial testing is labor-intensive, produces slow results prone to human error, and is vulnerable to tampering and poor compliance.

The result: massive inefficiency, increased risk of errors, and lost time, which can be costly to your brand and your bottom line.

Now, with a breakthrough in automation, you can empower your lab to be more efficient than ever before.

Growth Direct™: the first and only growth-based system to automate compendial testing

Growth Direct is the first automated platform for 3 critical QC applications: environmental monitoring, water testing, and bioburden testing.

  • Faster results with fewer human errors due to misplaced or mislabeled plates, miscounts, and transcription mistakes
  • Increased lab efficiencies
  • Decreased hands-on labor

Plus, Growth Direct’s user-friendly, secure software is designed to be compliant with the requirements of 21 CFR PART 11 to help ensure data integrity and sample security.

By automating and accelerating microbial QC, only Growth Direct delivers the performance you need:
