MicroSnap | Total Viable Count
MicroSnap Total delivers same-day TVC test results, giving you the advantage of knowing microbial levels on the same day samples are collected. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of viable bacteria react with substrates to produce light. The light generating signal is then quantified with the EnSURE luminometer. MicroSnap Total’s same-day results enable you to take corrective actions faster or release products sooner.
Features and Benefits:
A new light on microbial detection.
MicroSnap is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of bacteria, giving actionable same-day test results. The MicroSnap test platform consists of an Enrichment Device containing a specific growth medium and a Detection Device containing a bioluminogenic (light-producing) substrate. When MicroSnap detects the specific microorganism, light is emitted and measured with Hygiena’s EnSURE luminometer. Results are stored and tracked with Hygiena’s complimentary SureTrend software for further data analysis and trending.
No more counting colonies.
Relative Light Units
EnSURE displays measurements in relative light units (RLU’s). The RLU number is correlated to colony forming units (CFU’s).
How to Use
The entire MicroSnap test process is complete in the same day.
- Pass / Fail result at required detection levels are easy to understand
- Equivalent results to other culturing methods
- No specific sample preparation required
- SureTrend software tracks and trends results over time for easy data analysis
