Data and Reporting

The Growth Direct® System software digitizes recording practices in the QC lab, automating manual handling and counting procedures with improved efficiency.

Automating Each Step of Your QC Testing

Incubation

System software converts each sample into a digital record via a unique code that tracks the sample through the full chain of custody, while robotic arms automate transfer processes.

Detection

Autofluorescence lighting, proven to provide the best detection capabilities, spots contamination at the micro-colony stage of development.

Enumeration

Applying detection data from our autofluorescence technology, the system software uses proprietary algorithms for accurate colony counting.

Remote Monitoring

Robust data integration capabilities seamlessly connect incubation, detection, and enumeration steps to enable more rapid results.

Remote Monitoring and Reporting Ensure Continuity

The Growth Direct® System's remote system monitoring and data reporting capabilities can ensure manufacturing continuity when QC labs must remain fully operational, even in the event of reduced staff due to unforeseen events such as COVID-19 restrictions.

An innovative and secure web-based application, the Remote Monitoring System (RMS) relieves lab staff of the need to retrieve and upload data. If there is an operational issue, our Rapid Micro Biosystems support team can immediately access log files to pinpoint the problem for quick corrective action. Log file data also can be used to analyze machine performance, enabling predictive maintenance to maximize system uptime.

Email

Email Connectivity Promotes Rapid Response

Email alerts can be sent to different personnel depending on the data set. For example: the QC lab manager can be alerted for Out Of Specification (OOS) sample results, the facilities manager can be notified about incubator temperature excursions, or the Rapid Micro Biosystems service team can be informed about system service issues requiring quick corrective action.

Network

Network Connectivity Delivers Seamless LIMS Integration

The Growth Direct® System can operate as a standalone rapid microbial test, or be integrated into a laboratory information management system (LIMS). Digitization of test results eliminates the possibility of manual transcription errors or data tampering, while providing the flexibility to direct data to another LIMS or networked program. The system software creates a standard export file in .csv format that can be parsed by the networked program to pull relevant data.
