Growth Direct®: Growth-based System for Automated Compendial Testing

Automated Reading of Environmental Monitoring Plates

Principle: Rapid Microbiological Detection with high volume automation by using multiple robotic arms, two on-board incubators, and an imaging system that analyses user-prepared samples and ensures complete data integrity.

Automation: YES

Approvals: 21 CFR part 11 compliant

Suitability: Suitable for manufacturing Quality Control (QC) labs and high throughput labs in regulated industries.

Capital equipment required: YES


Growth Direct is the first automated platform for 3 critical QC applications: environmental monitoring, water testing, and bioburden testing.

  • Faster results with fewer human errors due to misplaced or mislabeled plates, miscounts, and transcription mistakes
  • Increased lab efficiencies
  • Decreased hands-on labor

Plus, Growth Direct’s user-friendly, secure software is designed to be compliant with the requirements of 21 CFR PART 11 to help ensure data integrity and sample security.

Key Points:
