Hygiena™ MicroSnap™ Total Viable Count Swab

Hygiena™ MicroSnap™ Total Viable Count Swab

MicroSnap Total swabs are rapid tests for the detection and enumeration of total viable bacteria in 7 hours or less. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when viable bacteria are present. The light generating signal is then quantified with the EnSURE luminometer. MicroSnap Total’s same day results enable immediate corrective action to be taken if necessary. MicroSnap Total is AOAC-RI PTM Validated for a variety of food matrices.

Bioluminogenic Test

MicroSnap is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of bacteria, giving actionable, same-day test results. The MicroSnap test platform consists of an Enrichment Device containing a specific growth medium and a Detection Device containing a bioluminogenic (light-producing) substrate. When MicroSnap detects the specific microorganism, light is emitted and measured with Hygiena’s EnSURE luminometer. Results are stored and tracked with Hygiena’s complimentary SureTrend software for further data analysis and trending.

Enhanced Nutrient Broth

MicroSnap BrothEnhanced Nutrient Broth is one enrichment media for three MicroSnap detection tests. Just add 1mL of sample to the 9mL volume and incubate! The broth volume makes Enhanced Nutrient Broth perfect for milk samples where the limit is <1 CFU/ml. Enhanced Nutrient Broth is compatible with:
