ATP Bioluminescence Rapid Testing of Cosmetic Products
The Promicol system provides a rapid and reliable method for routine testing of cosmetic & toiletries products. The test procedures are simple and very easy to use. Results for one tested product are already available after 1 day of pre-incubation, whereas traditional methods need up to 7 days. The Promicol system can process and automatically analyze the data from several measurements, offering significant reductions in labor costs associated with testing these products. This provides companies with a saving of at least 2 days over the current traditional test methods for release of these products while test procedures are simple and very easy to use.
The cosmetic industry requires an extremely reliable and sensitive method for testing products for microbial contamination. Keeping in mind that these product types need a special pre-treatment due to high amount of preservatives, Promicol’s cosmetics software provides unique security and simple automated control of the complete assay procedure.
The Promicol system provides an automated system check as well as automated broth calibration. This enables the automated adjustment of product limits and increases the easiness of early detection of process failure.
The test procedures are simple, do not require any changes in sample preparation and are very easy to use. The Promicol system can process and automatically analyze the data from approximately 100 samples in ten minutes, offering significant reductions in labor costs.
