Indicator Organisms

Rapid methods and automation in microbiology is required for better and faster control of raw materials and final products, rapid microbiological methods are essential in the early detection, and characterization of microorganisms and their products in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industrials as well as environmental monitoring and clinical applications. 

We offer various rapid testing methods.

MicroSnap is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of specific bacteria react with specialized substrates to produce light. The light-generating signal is then quantified in the luminometer. Depending on the required level of detection, MicroSnap is able to give results within the same day. MicroSnap results enable you to take corrective actions faster or release products sooner.
