A new microbial luminescence system (MLS) from Biotrace International is revolutionising microbial testing of ultra high temperature (UHT) and extended shelf-life products in the dairy industry.
The Cogent MLS uses rapid ATP bioluminescence as a test for sterility failure in dairy samples, as traditional agar-based culture methods can take three to five days for clearance. The Cogent system provides reliable results at least 48 hours faster.
The testing procedure is also less labour intensive and the MLS displays a high correlation when compared with plate counts.
The size of a desk-top computer, the system has minimal moving parts and comes with a powerful software package.
