effective product quality monitoring

Rapid microbiology and sample prep provide solutions that speed the time it takes to collect a sample, analyze it and produce test results.

The accurate, reliable detection and identification of microorganisms is critical to public safety and industrial economics. As we become more aware of the presence and variety of the organisms that share the world we live in, we realize the importance of knowing how to detect and control them.

We excel as a leader in the development and manufacture of products to detect and control these microorganisms. Our products comply with international testing methods, are supported by technical literature, and carry certifications of quality. You can be confident that our affordable, easy-to-use products will meet the high quality standards you require.

 

Culturing sensitive organisms can be difficult, and identification is critical for process control and public safety. Analysis membranes must be manufactured to the highest standards for accurate microbial growth and recovery. Our mixed cellulose ester GN Metricel® membrane has set the standard worldwide for meeting stringent microbial regulations. Supor® and Metricel Black membranes provide additional benefits that range from low drug and protein binding characteristics to background contrast for ease in counting colonies. These membranes provide uniform and consistent growth of organisms.

 

We offer the widest selection of disposable filter funnels for microbiological analysis, offering unique design features that give these products a reputation for quality and ease of use.

 

MicroFunnel filter funnels make analysis easy. Design permits a simple squeeze separation of funnel from base to access membrane. Funnels attach directly to standard laboratory manifolds, and volume graduations are clearly marked to make it easy to measure your sample volume. Each unit is individually bagged, gamma-irradiated, and labelled for added assurance of lot traceability.

We offer a full line of microbiological ampoule media, unique membrane dispensers, pumps, and accessories like Petri dishes and stainless steel forceps to simplify your microbial analysis procedures.

Pharmaceutical bioburden and microbial limits testing

The pharmaceutical workflow requires disposable, ready to use devices like the MicroFunnel ™ Plus Filter Funnels and when combined with the portable Sentino® Microbiology Pump, testing of these samples can be executed at the time of sampling, thus further reducing the potential for cross contamination and false test results.

Spoilage organisms

Ensuring the effectiveness of cleaning procedures, quality of raw materials, and reliable processing capabilities are essential to preparing safe, high quality food and beverage products. The presence of spoilage organisms can shorten shelf life, render a product inedible, and halt production to investigate and eliminate the contaminating source.

Environmental/municipal water microbiology

We have been involved with water quality monitoring for coliforms since Standard Methods adopted the use of Membrane Filtration as an acceptable, and often preferable, method for monitoring drinking water quality.
