MicroSnap™ - Indicator Organisms Test
MicroSnap™ Coliform is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of coliform bacteria. MicroSnap™ Coliform can give out actionable same day test results. When MicroSnap™ Coliform detects the specific microorganism, light is emitted and measured with a Hygiena™ luminometer. Results are stored and tracked with SureTrend™ Cloud software for further data analysis and trending.
MicroSnap™ E. coli is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of E. coli bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of E. coli bacteria react with specialized substrates. The light-generating signal is then quantified in the EnSURE™ Touch luminometer. Depending on the required level of detection, MicroSnap™ E. coli is able to give results on the same day.
MicroSnap™ EB is a rapid test for detection and enumeration of Enterobacteriaceae (EB) bacteria. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of EB bacteria react with specialized substrates to produce light. The light-generating signal is then quantified in the EnSURE™ Touch luminometer. Depending on the required level of detection, MicroSnap™ EB is able to give results within the same day.
MicroSnap™ Total delivers same-day total viable count (TVC) test results, giving you the advantage of knowing microbial levels on the same day samples are collected. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of viable bacteria react with substrates to produce light. The light-generating signal is then quantified with a Hygiena™ luminometer. With same-day results, MicroSnap™ Total results enable you to take corrective actions faster or release products sooner.
Rapid test results are essential to releasing product quickly. The MicroSnap™ family of rapid indicator organism tests enables food safety and quality manager to enumerate samples in 6 hours and to determine presence/absence in 8 hours. Simply collect sample, incubate and read with a Hygiena™ Luminometer.
While sending samples to the lab for PCR analysis can be necessary for a specific application, simpler more cost-effective solutions can supplement your testing protocols. Integrating MicroSnap™ as a rapid indicator test within your testing protocol will reduce material cost, shipping costs and lab fees. Plus, a rapid test also means shorter production hold times and lower inventory holding costs, all leading to more cost savings.
MicroSnap’s efficient design makes microorganism testing flexible and easy. It can be used for both surfaces and samples. Both options use a simple 2-step process: enrichment and detection. Plus, the patented Snap-Valve holds a precise amount of specific enrichment broth, ready to be used for either product or surface samples. Within the enrichment device is a built-in pipette, enabling convenient and efficient transfer of enriched samples to the detection device. The enriched sample is read on Hygiena™ luminometer, which means no tedious colony counting necessary. Use the RLU to CFU conversion table to determine the outcome.
MicroSnap is an essential component within a complete environmental monitoring program. Combine MicroSnap with the EnSURE™ Touch and SureTrend™ Cloud to capture and trend your test results over time. Use SureTrend Cloud dashboard to see how your ATP testing program impacts your microorganism testing and how the two work together to reduce your risk of an event.
