Environmental testing and water quality control are a major concern for public health and are subject to laws and regulations in many countries. Water-bearing systems contaminated with pathogens are a source of infection and must be tested. BIOTECON Diagnostics’ real-time PCR-based microproof® LyoKits play a trusted role in detection and quantification of pathogens in environmental samples and water, and offer reliable analysis with high sensitivity and specificity.

microproof® Hygiene Screening System (Staphylococcus, Micrococcus, Corynebacterium)

The microproof Hygiene Screening System allows the rapid and highly specific detection of the three genera Staphylococcus, Micrococcus and Corynebacterium. It is in use by several international manufacturers of pharmaceutical products, mainly for hygiene monitoring prior to sterile production processes in the different clean room classes. Additionally, the most important species, like Micrococcus luteus or Staphylococcus aureus, can be identified within the same reaction through melting curve analysis.
The microproof Hygiene Screening System allows efficient hygiene monitoring in the pharmaceutical environment, and is used worldwide by many pharmaceutical companies. It is one of the few commercially available so-called NAT methods (Nucleic Acid Amplification Techniques), which have been successful in this industry.
