Microbial Dectection (Soleris)
The Soleris system is a rapid optical system for the detection of microbial contamination based on an innovative application of classic microbiology. The optical assay measures microbial growth by monitoring pH and other biochemical reactions that generate a color change, as microorganisms in the broth grow and metabolize nutrients. The results are monitored by the system providing an alert for samples that are out of specification.
The Soleris® system consists of an incubator, ready-to-use vials, and system software. It has reproducible, rapid, and accurate detection of a variety of microorganisms across a spectrum of sample types including food, dairy, beverages, nutraceuticals, and personal care products. The flexibility of the system can grow as needed; 1 to 512 samples can be tested simultaneously and up to four instruments can be connected to a single PC allowing any combination of 32 and 128 sample units. There is random access to all positions at any time — no batching is required. The instrument has no moving parts and a rugged design for a long life. It combines dye technologies and optical sensors to detect various groups of organisms by their metabolic processes (e.g., coliforms, Enterobacteriaceae, yeast and molds, lactic acid bacteria, E. coli, and others
Features and Benefits
Soleris helps businesses protect brand equity by ensuring the quality of raw materials meets standards faster, thus allowing businesses to provide customers with higher quality finished products. This technology facilitates the improvement of manufacturing processes by preventing reworks before the product is made. The Soleris system’s automated optical technology uses simple methodology and familiar principles of classic microbiology. Soleris keeps product quality up, while holding times down.
