Speedy Breedy Rapid Respirometer Added to Our RMM Matrix

Our rapid methods (RMM) Product Matrix page has just been updated to include a portable, rapid method that is based on measuring pressure changes as a result of growing microorganisms. The Bactest Speedy Breedy system detects pressure changes in a closed culture vessel when microorganisms respire. Applicable to aerobes, facultative anaerobes, anaerobes, microaerophilic bacteria and yeast, pressure changes are monitored continuously and data is presented in real-time. General media or selective media may be used, the latter for detecting specific microorganisms.

The RMM Product Matrix catalogues more than 60 qualitative, quantitative and microbial identification systems, detailing scientific principles, workflow, applications, time to result, throughput, sample size or type, sensitivity levels and organisms detected. The rapid methodologies discussed have been validated and implemented in a wide variety of industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, environmental, water, clinical and diagnostics, personal care and homeland defense.
