EZ-CFU One Step Challenge Testing Organisms
EZ-CFU One Step, from MicroBioLogics Inc., is made to support growth promotion microorganism challenges that must meet USP/EP/JP guidelines. These lyophilized microorganism preparations are manufactured to perform within a predetermined range of 10 CFU to 100 CFU in a 0.1 mL volume.
EZ-CFU One Step provides a 2.0 mL inoculum in a single aliquot. This allows the lab technician to perform up to 19 tests per aliquot (0.1 mL) or 190 tests per kit. It earns its name because it produces a durable, non-foaming suspension that is immediately ready to be added to the challenge material once the hydrated suspension is prepared (30 minutes).
A long shelf-life in refrigerated temperatures guarantees easy and safe storage. A 'peel-off' Certificate of Assay supports quality control system documentation.
The following strains are currently available.
**Aspergillus niger, ATCC 16404, Cat# 0392Z;
Bacillus subtilis, ATCC 6633, Cat#0486Z;
**Candida albicans, ATCC 10231, Cat#0443Z;
Clostridium sporogenes, ATCC11437, Cat# 0487Z;
Clostridium sporogenes, ATCC 19404, Cat# 0317Z;
**Escherichia coli, ATCC 8739, Cat# 0483Z;
**Pseudomonas aeruginosa, ATCC 9027, Cat# 0484Z;
**Staphylococcus aureus, ATCC 6538; Cat# 0485Z;
**These strains are available on a New Product Status. New products come with a minimum guaranteed shelf-life of 6 months to avoid delay in product distribution. Other product configurations serve as evidence supporting our projection that the standard shelf-life period will be met; however, we cannot include the 10-20 month guarantee until the completion of 20 months shelf-life study.
