GreenLight™ Model 910

Source: MOCON, Inc.

GreenLight Model 910 is a simple low medium throughput test that provides total aerobic viable counts of food samples by measuring bacterial oxygen consumption and equating oxygen consumption to microbial load. As bacteria in the test sample grow and respire they deplete 02 which is detected as an increase in the GreenLight™ probe signal above the baseline level. The time required to reach this increase in signal is used to calculate the the cfu/g of the original food sample, based on a pre-determined calibration. The GreenLight™ 910 test can provide results within hours(including sample preparation and incubation time), providing rapid, easy and sensitive enumeration of bacterial load without the need to conduct multiple sample dilutions and lengthy, tedious counts on agar.
