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.

A new light on microbial detection.

MicroSnap is a rapid bioluminogenic test method for the detection and enumeration of bacteria, giving actionable same-day test results. 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.

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.

CFU RLU

RLU

Relative Light Units

EnSURE displays measurements in relative light units (RLU’s). The RLU number is correlated to colony forming units (CFU’s).

Enumeration Results

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.
