AMP-6000® Automated Microbiological Enumeration Platform


More than 80% of routine examinations in microbiological laboratories involve enumeration of hygiene indicators. These include, e.g., determination of the aerobic mesophilic germ count and the quantification of Enterobacteriaceae as well as E. coli.

The conventional or standard methods used to date are laborious to perform, time-intensive in terms of analysis and documentation, and require sufficient expertise in result interpretation.

The innovative AMP-6000® system permits these tasks to be automated and thus enables sample throughput in the laboratory to be significantly increased. This automated, miniaturized platform combines the well-known MPN technique for determining the number of microbes (MPN = Most Probable Number) on microplates.

The precision of this statistical method is comparable with that of direct counting, thanks to the automated preparation of a series of serial dilutions and the simultaneous examination from 16 to 96 replicates per dilution.

Ready to use reagents for parameters as TAMC (Total Aerobic Mesophilic Counts), Enterobacteriaceae, E.coli, Enterococci, Bacillus cereus, and butyric clostridia are already available.
