Probiotic products contain live microorganisms – mainly bacteria - that are believed to have beneficial effects for human and animal health.
It is far from trivial to maintain consistent production of viable, high-quality probiotics products.
Good monitoring tools are needed in the entire production from the initial fermentation to the final harvesting, drying, and filling. The aim of the monitoring is to ensure that the microorganisms are harvested at the optimal state and that they do not succumb to the subsequent processing steps.
Most of the existing tools for monitoring bacterial viability are either slow (e.g. plate counts) or imprecise (e.g. optical density measurements). That’s why we developed the BactoBox.
BactoBox can be used to give a here-and-now answer on the total concentration of intact, viable, bacteria in a sample. This allows users to control production processes thereby optimizing product yield and quality. For probiotics production, BactoBox can be an indispensable tool for determining the concentration of viable bacteria in the intermediate and final freeze-dried products.
BactoBox can ensure that you will get fast and reliable data on every stage of your probiotics production. The device has a small footprint to fit in most places, is user-friendly to non-microbiologists, and still delivers accurate total bacteria counts in just a few minutes.
