How Growth Direct™ benefits R&D and Operations

Growth Direct improves efficiency and workflow…effortlessly.

As a member of R&D and operations, your responsibilities include improving efficiency as well as workflow.

The challenge: the manual compendial testing method. It is labor-intensive, slow to produce results, prone to human error, and vulnerable to tampering and poor compliance. The result: the efficiency of your facility, as well as the integrity of your data, may be compromised.

The good news­­—you now have a new solution: Growth Direct.

Growth Direct is the first and only growth-based system to automate compendial testing. So it helps you achieve consistently reliable results in about half the time, reduce errors and investigations, use personnel more efficiently, and bring products to market faster than ever before possible.

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.

Growth Direct follows the same simple sample preparation as the compendial method, which makes it much easier for your staff to implement rapid microbial methods. With a simple bar code reader and a few mouse clicks, your team can run hundreds of cassettes and have results exported to your existing laboratory information management system (LIMS).

Water, bioburden, and environmental microbiology testing takes 3-7 days. Growth Direct is twice as fast.
