The Microbial Detection Business Unit manufactures instruments for the rapid screening of microbes.

A rapid automatic screening system impacts all industries that require aerobic bacteria detection and counts. This division offers a break through system using a novel oxygen sensing system measuring total bacteria counts, and some specific pathogen counts in 1 -15 hours compared to the traditional 48 hour testing period.

We continue to expand our capabilities of detecting specific pathogens by adding new specific pathogen tests such as Coliforms.
