Rapid detection of microbial growth
CertaBlue is based on rapid detection of several metabolic processes that take place within the growing organism. The system can detect color changes through highly sensitive optical sensors. All vials are ready to use, prefilled with media and equipped with CertaBlue sensors. In most cases, the test vials can be inoculated with a non-diluted sample. The CertaBlue vials contain an optical sensor, which can detect carbon dioxide as the universal indicator for microbial growth. The sensor is placed in the bottom of the vial, where it directly detect carbon dioxide changes. CertaBlue sensors are only permeable for gases. Liquids, dyed / heavily colored products and other particles can’t falsify results.
