THE new Cogent Microbial Luminescence System (MLSII) from Biotrace International provides a rapid alternative to traditional microbiological assessment of Ultra Heat Treated (UHT) and Extended Shelf Life (ESL) products in the beverage industry.
Using ATP bioluminescence technology, the Cogent MLSII allows the release product more than 48 hours sooner than traditional methods, thereby reducing inventory and holding requirements, and in-turn improving cash flow whilst still meeting QA programme demands.
Following sample incubation and a short 27-minute assay time, the Cogent MLSII delivers highly visual on-screen results as they are generated, with no need to wait for all 96-microwell plate results to complete.
Combined with Biotrace International's reporting software, Biotrack MLS, the system provides valuable information through summaries and detailed reports, allowing overall quality performance to be tracked over time.
The precision, sensitivity, flexibility and reliability of the Cogent MLSII makes it suited as a high throughput microbial detection system for end product screening in the dairy industry, as well as other industries producing sterile products.
Biotrace International, represented by FOSS Pacific , offers complete food safety solutions for checking the safety and quality of food production processes.
