Automated, rapid detection of microbial contamination based on ATP bioluminescence Overview An Automated System for Rapid, Accurate Detection and Enumeration of Microorganisms The Milliflex® Rapid Microbiology Detection and Enumeration system is an automated solution for the rapid detection, response, and resolution of microbial contamination in filterable samples throughout the manufacturing process. The system improves process control, product yield and the timely release of products. Based on Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence technology, the Milliflex® Rapid system delivers faster test results than traditional microbial contamination detection methods, such as membrane filtration (MF) and pour plates. The Milliflex® Sample Prep method also ensures consistent, reliable results. The Millilfex® Rapid system can clearly distinguish between mixed microbial growth of slow growing and fast growing microorganisms, as well as variances in their size and ATP content in water samples. Results in Hours, Not Days With the Milliflex® Rapid system you can detect bacteria in approximately 1/4 the time of your current method. The Milliflex® Rapid system can detect and count viable microorganisms filtered onto a membrane down to 1 CFU per sample. The software displays results as familiar colony forming units (CFU) therefore providing a direct comparison with historical data obtained from traditional methods.
