CertaBlue™ Professional Rapid Microbiology For Every Laboratory


Why Wait?
CertaBlue is based on the rapid detection of several metabolic processes that take place within the growing organism. The system can detect color changes through highly sensitive optical sensors. All vials are ready to use, prefilled with media and equipped with CertaBlue sensors. In most cases, the vials can be inoculated with a non-diluted high volume sample.

The CertaBlue vials contain an optical sensor, which can detect carbon dioxide as the universal indicator for microbial growth. The sensor is placed in the bottom of the vial, where it directly detects carbon dioxide changes. CertaBlue sensors are only permeable for gases. Liquids, dyed / heavily colored products and other particles can’t falsify results.

Simplicity
The CertaBlue testing procedure is remarkably easy...

Just add 0,1 – 9,0ml of product to the CertaBlue test vial and incubate as specified. Real-time monitoring is offered using the AutoScanner system. Test vials are ready to use, including growth media and sensor. The limit of detection is one organism and the tests can be used for retesting or confirmation.

CertaBlue offers a comprehensive package of microbiological rapid tests, professional coaching and know-how for the following market segments:

  • Dairy
  • Food & beverages
  • Beauty & personal care
  • Home care
  • Water
  • Feed & Grain
  • And more...

Principle of the Test
CertaBlue is based on the rapid detection of several metabolic processes that take place within the growing organism.

The system can detect color changes through highly sensitive optical sensors. All vials are ready to use, prefilled with media and equipped with CertaBlue sensors. In most cases, the test vials can be inoculated with a non-diluted high volume sample.

The CertaBlue vials contain an optical sensor, which can detect carbon dioxide as the universal indicator for microbial growth. The sensor is placed at the bottom of the vial, where it directly detects carbon dioxide changes. CertaBlue sensors are only permeable for gases. Liquids, dyed / heavily colored products and other particles can’t falsify results.

What samples can I test?
Liquid or (semi-)solid samples in a quantity ranging from 0.1 – 9.0ml or 0.1 – 9.0gr can be added to the CertaBlue test vials. Contact your CertaBlue distributor for specific product testing protocols.

Incubation time
Highly contaminated samples rapidly detect bacteria (typically in 8-12 hours), yeast (16-24 hours) and mold (24-35 hours), providing timely warning of contamination.

Microbial limit procedure
CertaBlue uses the dilute-to-specification procedure, which requires diluting the sample to product release specifications or in-process action levels. If growth is detected, the sample fails; if there is no detection, the sample passes (i.e., the counts are below the specification limit).

What can CertaBlue offer you:

  • Simplified test procedures
  • Ready-to-use vials including media and CertaBlue sensor
  • Test procedure consists of just adding your sample to the vial

Rapid results:

  • Results in hours instead of days
  • Real-time detection and early warning of positive samples
  • Ensures a quick and safe product release
  • Better recovery of injured and/or damaged microorganism
