The Growth Direct® System automates and accelerates quality control (QC) microbiology testing, eliminating error-prone manual processes while dramatically reducing process steps and wait times.
Automating Each Step of Your QC Microbiology Testing
Reduces Human Error that Impacts Data Integrity and Causes Contamination
Labs using the Growth Direct® System can achieve greater efficiencies with minimal human handling, making it possible to:
Maximize throughput with the highest incubation capacity solution of any rapid microbial detection system
Automate sample testing to produce accurate results in about half the time of manual methods, while eliminating human error due to misplaced/mislabeled plates, miscounts, and transcription mistakes
Digitize test results to enable a paperless LIMS and ensure data integrity
Fully Automates and Accelerates Compendial Methods
Our Rapid Microbial Method (RMM) combines digital imaging technology with sophisticated software algorithms to detect and count the autofluorescence of growing microbes. Detection is twice as fast as manual processes* while eliminating 100% of investigations resulting from human error.

Labor Efficiency and Savings
Eliminating unnecessary hands-on labor and manual data entry increases the productivity of highly skilled technicians, freeing them to use their expertise for high-impact activities while improving retention and reducing training costs.
Maximizes Speed and Capacity While Minimizing Risk, Downtime, and Cost
The high-throughput, high-capacity Growth Direct® System delivers test results in dramatically less time, enabling faster product release, greater capacity, and enhanced data integrity and security.
Can Prevent Costly Investigations and Warning Letters
Data integrity issues were cited in 57% of all 2018 FDA warning letters, slowing deployment of therapeutics to patients while severely impacting the bottom line and reputation of biopharmaceutical firms. With the Growth Direct® System, fully traceable test results are available in dramatically less time, saving hundreds of hours of investigation work and potentially millions of dollars in lost productivity.
