Rapid Microbiological Method
Manufacturer: Neogen Europe Ltd.
BioLumix™ is a rapid testing system for quality control and product release analytics. It is specially adapted for use in cosmetics and food industry. Ready-to-use vials, intuitive sample handling and automated evaluation make your routine analysis easier, faster and more economic. Validation according to USP and longtime experience ensure reliable results you can trust. The BioLumix™ enables testing of raw materials as well as critical control points and finished products.
As a result, the system can be employed in many areas of application like product release, process control, shelf life studies, challenge tests, QC/QA and hygiene monitoring.
The separation of incubation and reading zone makes the system equally suitable for solids, liquids, opaque and colored samples. Each BioLumix™ incubator can flexibly be loaded with up to 32 samples. The modular design allows an easy extension of the system and future-proofs you for rising sample throughput. Due to automated monitoring and evaluation, handling of the BioLumix™ can be taught easily to every operator in short time.
BioLumix™ uses CO2 as universal marker for microbial growth. The sensor zone of each vial is impenetrable for solids and liquids to eliminate matrix effects. Using long-life LEDs, the BioLumix™ monitors changes of the sensor every 6 minutes, thus providing real-time results. The higher the contamination, the sooner it will be detected, allowing faster responsive actions.
