MilliPROBE Detects Biopharmaceutical Microbial Contamination in Hours
The MilliPROBE system is the first solution of its kind for biopharmaceutical manufacturing. It combines Millipore's leading, industry-accepted sample prep methodologies with Gen-Probe's advanced, proven nucleic acid technologies to deliver both speed and sensitivity in one microbial screening tool.
The MilliPROBE system uses Real-Time Transcription-Mediated Amplification (TMA) technology to detect targeted microbial contamination within hours compared to the days or weeks usually required to generate results using traditional culture-based technology.
Faster detection allows biopharmaceutical manufacturers to take corrective action earlier in the production process, which reduces downstream processing risks, optimizes product yields, and improves final product quality. These improvements may result in better operational efficiency and lower manufacturing cost for product manufacturers.
