Rapid Micro Biosystems, Inc. Key Developments

Rapid Micro Biosystems Announces the Commercial Availability of the Growth Direct(TM) System for Environmental Monitoring and Bioburden Applications

Rapid Micro Biosystems announced the launch of the next generation of Growth Direct(TM) System and accompanying applications. The Growth Direct(TM) System is designed to automate the incubation, detection, enumeration and reporting steps for environmental monitoring and bioburden applications in pharmaceutical quality control laboratories. The technology is based on the detection of the natural auto-fluorescence of microorganisms; requiring no additional reagents to detect growing colonies. The Growth Direct(TM) System can handle both the environmental monitoring and bioburden (in-process and water) applications. The environmental monitoring application for the Growth Direct(TM) System automates the high volume testing typically found in the combination of air, surface and personnel monitoring. Delivers efficiency: Automated reading and data transfer to laboratory information management systems (LIMS) frees personnel from tedious handling and counting of hundreds of plates a day allowing resources to focus on higher value activities. Audit trail: The system provides a complete, error-free record of all activities and results. System can be located near production: On a large site, the Growth Direct(TM) System can be located near manufacturing, increasing efficiency and reducing the travel risk with critical samples.
