The GreenLight® 910 unit significantly reduces the testing time and labour needed to determine aerobic bacterial counts in meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, produce, etc. Processors and packers get same-day, precise results in a cost-effective manner.

“The GreenLight technology will be appealing to most quality control and laboratory professionals because it simplifies, and therefore cuts time out of, the sample prep phase. Depending on the expected bacterial load, results can be obtained between minutes and eight hours. This is significantly faster than the agar or film plate methods, which typically require 48 hours to achieve a meaningful microbial count. Shorter testing cycles provide packers and processors with the potential of getting their perishable food items to the consumer in less time,” said

Mark Theno, food safety product manager,” MOCON.

Additionally, the cost-effective unit has a small bench-top footprint and an easy-to-use PC software interface with multiple measurement modes. It also has the ability to generate a unique ID for each test making it easy to track specific vials in a busy work environment.

With features like:

  • Used to test the growth and enumeration of microbial samples
  • Single well reader for use with APCheck™ vials 2 mL or 15 mL with an optional adapter
  • Internal incubation of samples
  • Included Windows® softwareGreenLight® 910
  • No moving parts
  • Three testing modes allowing external incubation to boost throughput
