Rapid Indicator Organism for Microbial Detection
Company has added rapid "indicator organism" testing capability to its GreenLight® microbial detection platform, reducing test time up to 60%. In addition to the previously available total count testing capability, the system now is able to simultaneously test for enterobacteriaceae and total coliform counts using an oxygen depletion sensor and automated reader. Users will be able to receive extensive quantitative test results in 10 hours or less, versus the 24 hours required by traditional methods. Target applications include dairy, cheese and meat, as well as sanitation initiatives. The system is configured to allow quantitative data and pass/fail testing in a fully automated mode.
