Rapid microbiological methods
Rapid microbiological methods can quickly detect or identify microorganisms in a sample using biological, biochemical, molecular or chemical means. In recent years, a plethora of new, faster methods have been developed, which avoid or rely less on the growth of the target microorganism that makes many traditional microbiological analyses time consuming.
Campden BRI has been at the forefront of monitoring and assessing these methods, and since 1995 has produced a Catalogue of Rapid Microbiological Methods (Review No. 1) - now in its seventh edition. We can advise you on which methods would be suitable for use in your particular area.
