Determining Incubation Regime and Time to Results for Automated Rapid Microbiology EM MethodsWith the use of growth-based rapid microbial methods (RMM), the time to result is determined with a defined incubation regime to obtain accurate results and take full advantage of potential time savings provided by RMM.

 

The primary goal in the use of RMMs is to reduce the incubation times specified by standard methods in order to provide a faster time to result (TTR). The shorter TTR of the RMM provides the data needed to enable any necessary action on the sample sooner than the standard method, whether it be product release or to confirm that critical processes are operating within microbiological specification.

 

This peer-reviewed article includes an illustrative case study for determining the optimal incubation regimen and time to results for an environmental monitoring application.
