Product innovation points and advantages compared to traditional methods
We know that the traditional method of detecting planktonic bacteria in clean areas is achieved by calculating colony forming units (CFU). The specific steps are: the plankton sampler collects a certain volume of gas, the plankton in the gas is collected on the surface of the medium of the plate, the plate will grow out of the naked eye visible colonies after incubation in the incubator, and the plankton results can be obtained by artificially counting the colonies and then converting them into colony forming units of unit volume. From the above steps, it can be seen that the current process of air microbiological testing is an interval, point-to-point and event-driven sample collection process. The process requires a lot of manual labor and adherence to strict aseptic practices and a long incubation time, which ultimately requires the laboratory personnel to manually count and verify the colony counts.
The whole process is labor-intensive and consumable. This traditional testing method requires at least 1-7 days to obtain test results, and such a time delay can miss the collection of contaminated samples, thus affecting the investigation of the source of contamination. In addition, because the test results are not available in a timely manner, traditional plankton detection methods are also unable to prevent major production scrap due to process environmental contamination.
BAMS uses physical-optical autoinduced fluorescence technology to enumerate planktonic bacteria without the need for culture or manual counting, and real-time plankton counts can be read directly on the instrument screen. active particles detected by BAMS include microorganisms that can be cultured by plate counting, as well as microorganisms that are active, but not viable, due to mechanical damage, life cycle stages, or inappropriate culture conditions. It is generally recognized in academia that less than 1% of captured microorganisms in the environment can grow on culture media (a phenomenon known as VBNC, Viable But Not Culturable). Therefore, the number of microorganisms detected by BAMS is much closer to the actual number of microorganisms in the environment.
In addition, BAMS monitoring helps to reduce the number of dishes, shorten the sampling and cleaning time, and significantly save the associated storage costs, labor costs and consumables costs.
Compared to traditional methods, BAMS is more convenient. Just like any other common particle counter, the user sets a specified time or volume for sampling. The instrument will start sampling. The monitoring result will be displayed on the screen in real time. The whole sampling process can be completed in just 3 steps.
