Oculer Rapid Microbiology Method

Oculer microbiological assay technology

Principle: Greenlight technology utilising oxygen depletion sensor

Automation: Yes

Approvals: Microval and AOAC applied for

Suitability: Food especially dairy and beverages. PCP. All aerobic bacteria including Yeasts and Moulds. Commercial Sterility Testing

Oculer RMM consists of an Oculer 930 Series Reader and proprietary OcuSoft Software. Samples are inoculated into special AP-Check Vials containing special Gamma Irradiated proprietary media and Oxygen Depletion Sensor. Reduction in the level of oxygen caused by bacterial growth in the AP-Check Vials is continuously monitored by sensitive LEDs. The resulting luminescence is measured providing accurate real-time data and early detection of microorganisms’ growth. Yeasts & Moulds can be detected within 48 hrs incubation.

Key Points:
  • Greenlight Technology
  • Fully automated Rapid System for aerobic microorganisms including Yeasts and Moulds
