MOCON’s GreenLight® system provides aerobic bacterial load measurements at any point in the value chain, at a lower cost and 10 times faster than traditional plating. This system enables producers to gain control over processes, reduce preparation costs, save time, track trends and gain flexibility without a laboratory or extensive training to operate.
The GreenLight system uses unique oxygen-depletion technology in the form of an integrated vial sensor to eliminate the need for sample dilution, plate counting and waiting for incubation cycles. The intuitive software records all results in a database for easy reporting, analysis and historical comparison.
The GreenLight method has received AOAC and MicroVal approval for raw meats and poultry.
MOCON, the world leader for over 45 years in permeation and package integrity analysis, is leading the way with automated instruments providing fast, accurate, low cost, screening to aid early detection of food-borne pathogens.
Time To Result:
- (Using internal incubation); one concurrent test at a time until time-to-result (see above)
- Other operating modes (external incubation); Multi-Point mode 72 tests until the last test is complete; Pass/Fail mode 216 tests on a fixed time interval
- (Using internal incubation), up to 48 concurrent tests. Load new tests at any time as long as a carousel position is available
- Other operating modes (external incubation); Multi-Point mode 3x48=144 tests;
Pass/Fail mode 9x48=432 tests
How the automated GreenLight System detects bacterial load (2:13)
An increasing appreciation for the importance of food and microbiological safety has resulted in a demand for a more rapid, high-throughput method for total viable count (TVC) quantification to deal with the increasing numbers of samples that require testing. ...
In food process facilities, it is common practice for equipment and surfaces to be tested for cleanliness by swabbing. Usually, the recovered microbial load from a swab is submitted for evaluation of the Aerobic Plate Count (APC), also known as Total Viable Co ...
The GreenLight® system was designed for applications across the food industry with further uses in environmental measurements. The core technology is a novel oxygen-depletion sensor that can detect very small changes in oxygen content making the system ideal for us ...
