The microbiological quality of the finished product is essential to the success of the manufacturing process. Our rapid, automated test methods offer our clients the ability to utilize our ISO 17025 accredited laboratory and still receive the turn-around time of an in-house lab without the negative connotations associated with having an in-house lab.
BRS uses the latest “state-of-the-art” testing methods. The automated VIDAS system for pathogen detection and the TEMPO system for microbiological quality indicators offer reliable next day results. These systems virtually eliminate external contamination, human error, and the need for qualitative results interpretation.
We also use the VITEK 2 system for rapid reliable organism identification including pathogens such as Listeria and Salmonella.
