Hygiena Indicator Organism Tests 每 MicroSnap™ Total Viable Count
MicroSnap™ Total delivers TVC test results in 7 hours, giving you the advantage of knowing microbial levels on the same day samples are collected. The test uses a novel bioluminogenic test reaction that generates light when enzymes that are characteristic of viable bacteria react with substrates to produce light. The light generating signal is then quantified with the EnSURE™ luminometer. MicroSnap Total's same-day results enable you to take corrective actions faster or release products sooner. (AOAC-RI Performance Tested Method #031501).
Rapid results where you need them most.
Raw Material Tests
Screen for microbiological contamination before materials go into processing.
Plant Environmental Monitoring
Test environmental surfaces and equipment for same-day bacterial results of plant hygiene.
Finished Product Testing
Verify microorganism levels sooner for quicker release and better quality assurance.
A new light on microbial detection.
MicroSnap is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of bacteria, giving actionable test results in less than 8 hours. 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.
New! Enhanced Nutrient Broths
Enhanced Nutrient Broths 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:

No more counting colonies.
CFU (Colony Forming Units)
Traditional plating methods utilize colony counting techniques to determine CFU levels. MicroSnap technology derives equivalent CFU values using light detection.
RLU (Relative Light Units)
EnSURE displays measurements in relative light units (RLU’s). The RLU number is correlated to colony forming units (CFU’s).
The entire MicroSnap Total process is complete in 7 hours. Sample is collected and enriched at the beginning of the shift and incubated for 7 hours. Results are ready before the end of a typical 8-hour shift.
Microbiology in a Snap.
MicroSnap's efficient design makes microorganism testing easier than ever. Each device's patented Snap-Valve™ holds a precise amount of specific enrichment broth, ready to be used for either product or surface samples. Within the enrichment device is a built-in pipette, enabling convenient and efficient transfer of enriched sample to the detection device. After activation, the detection device delivers final results immediately, making the total test time 7 hours. That means less time waiting for lab results or counting plates.
