ChemScan RDI ultra-rapid and ultra-sensitive microbiology analyser
Real-Time Microbiology Results, the ultimate combination of speed and sensitivity!
With ChemScan RDI (Scan RDI in the US) manufacturers now have a unique opportunity.ChemScan RDI’ s ability to count down to a single cell within just 90 minutes of sampling creates the chance to switch, once and for all, from retrospective to real-time microbial control. By avoiding the requirement for any cell multiplication, a process that slows down the pace of culture plate-based and other ‘rapid’ growth-based technologies, creates new opportunities to save time, money and improve quality.
Knowing for certain within minutes, rather than up to 14 days, that processes and products are free of contamination will positively impact on process control and consumer protection: potential contamination can be detected immediately; inventories can be dramatically reduced; remedial action can be taken before processes drift out of specification; cleaning actions can be validated immediately; and process improvements can be evaluated on-line.
Although it offers revolutionary performance, ChemScan RDI is based on two proven technologies – fluorescent cell labelling and laser scanning, and is also called Solid-Phase Cytometry. On their own each has a contribution to make towards enhanced cell detection, but when integrated together the results are truly dramatic – a quantum leap forward.
