    Bacteria are Microscopic
    Why Rely on Your Eyes to Count Them?

    Quantifying unwanted microorganisms is important to avoid difficulties during processing and to assure a safe product for consumers. However, the long time-to-result of the traditional methods serves as a bottleneck in processing and hinders processing decisions based on the actual quality. With IntuGrow the well-known colony forming units (CFU) results are provided in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods while still following ISO specified media and incubation temperatures.   The growth detection system employs traditional cultivation methodology but catches growth long before it becomes visible to the naked eye. By doing this a more representative quantification is achieved, as fused colonies which would be counted as one, easily are divided. IntuBio IntuGrow is a platform utilizing sample enrichment by filtration and traditional microbiological growth media, including a broad range of selective media (patent pending).
    The adaptable design enables analysis on a broad range of sample types, including complex products (like whey or protein solutions), water, swabs and more.  
    By enrichment, an adjustable sample volume can be analyzed in order to detect low levels of bacteria or meet specified regulatory volume requirements.
    • CFU in hours, not days
    • Easy sample prep
    • Automated colony counting
    • Continuous growth monitoring
    • Easily interpreted data presentation
    • Results as CFU, not arbitrary units
