Bioburden testing - coming soon

Fast enumeration of Total Yeast & Mold Count (TYMC) & Total Aerobic Microbial Count (TAMC), in CFU (Colony Forming Units)

RAPID automated MicrobiAL detection:

TAMC & TYMC 

Bioburden refers to the total number of microorganisms present in a sample. Bioburden testing is essential for many industries such as the pharmaceutical, food & drinks and cosmetics industries. The contamination thresholds and the methods used vary according to each sector, but revealing the presence of all microorganisms sooner at the earliest possible stage is crucial for all these industries.

With MICA, get your bioburden test results in 3 minutes, after an unrivalled reduced time of incubation : <24h for TAMC and <48h for TYMC.

Why choosing MICA Bioburden?

Results reading of agar in 3 minutes

FASTER RESULTS

Incubation reduced to <24 hrs for TAMC & <48 hrs for TYMC compared to 3-5 days with the traditional method – Results in 3 minutes.

Results reading of agar in 3 minutes

RESULTS IN CFU

Same process and culture media as reference methods.

Automated counting at an early stage of microcolony.

Results reading of agar in 3 minutes

SAME PROTOCOL AS ISO & OTHER REFERENCE METHODS

Adding only one Diamidex reagent before incubation for fast TAMC & TYMC detection.

Bacteria information

  • Yeasts and molds belong to the family of eukaryotic fungi. Not all of them are pathogenic but they can release toxins above a certain threshold. Enumerating their total number (Total Yeast & Mold Counts) is essential to detect and quantify their growth level and thus their potential impact on health or on the quality of finished products.
  • The Total Aerobic Flora or (Total Microbial Aerobic Count) refers to all the microorganisms that can grow in the presence of oxygen on media defined by the standards in force for each industry. It is a technological indicator that is not intended to reveal the presence of pathogenic germs.

MICA, the first smart microcolony counter on the market

An extreme sensitivity allowing to detect microorganisms at their early culturable stage

Thanks to an unmatched optical resolution among colonies counters, MICA is capable of detecting and counting microorganisms at their microcolony stage.

  • Automated Smartscan: 70 shots per membrane
  • Fluorescence detection and bright field

Integrated safety and traceability

MICA includes a software according to the targeted microorganism. The use of MICA is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. The analysis history is accessible, and all data are exportable and can be integrated into a LIMS or CRM system making of MICA an essential decision support tool.

 

A semi-automatic solution, easy to use and to implement

Designed as a turnkey solution, MICA is easy to use and to implement, by all technicians. The operator is guided step-by-step through a simplified protocol according to the targeted microorganism. The automatic counting of microcolonies ensures fewer uninterpretable results than traditional culture method, faster

A smart counter easily integrated into a LEAN management system

MICA has been specifically created to meet laboratories’ and industrials’ needs to improve their productivity. Technician time savings are made thanks to a simplified protocol, including function such as repeatability of results & readings. Results are released faster to the client allowing a better microbiological workflow.
