Hygiena’s Innovate rapid microbial screening system is designed to meet the needs of today’s manufacturers for fast, efficient, and safe product release. From screening raw materials and work-in-process inventory to releasing finished goods, the Innovate system is a great fit for packaged dairy, food, and beverage products where there is a low expectation of bio-burden such as in ultra-high temperature (UHT) or extended shelf-life (ESL) pasteurized products.
Rapid microbiological testing benefits
The Innovate System uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence-based detection, an accurate, rapid method that is ideal for screening dairy products due to its clear absence/presence results. Results can be obtained in less than 30 minutes, following pre-enrichment, with the ability to run 96 samples at once with no secondary incubation needed. The Innovate system works exclusively with proprietary RapiScreen™ reagents, which have been validated, so testing can be performed on a diverse product matrix – from UHT milks and creams to sauces, soups and broths, juices and beverages.
Automated product sampling solution
As an additional advantage, high-volume facilities can automate product sampling using the Innovate Autosampler III, a high-volume automated sampling solution for high throughput bottling and aseptic packaging facilities. It streamlines product sampling from any style carton to the testing plate, increasing efficiency and consistency. Designed for flexibility, the Autosampler III can be customized for your particular workflow.
