Environmental monitoring is an integral part of the overall microbial testing performed as part of pharmaceutical manufacturing. The traditional method includes the use of standard contact plates and media.
Samples are captured, the contact plate incubated and the number of colony forming units (CFUs) reported. While a time tested technique, the compendial test is time consuming and open to errors in counting or recording of results.
The Growth DirectTM System helps to automate the incubation, enumeration and reporting using a proprietary cassette with traditional media.
