The SurCapt™ Microbial Surface Detection Kit is an all-inclusive, ready-to-use kit which simplifies and quickens the process of environmental surface testing for biological contamination. The kit uses GreenLight® Technology for the rapid detection of microbial activity on cleanroom surfaces and the design reduces the likelihood of sample cross-contamination and mishandling of samples by the operator.
The SurCapt Kit is intended to be used with the GreenLight automated reader. The reader’s internal LED sends light to the polymer sensor located in the kit vial and the optical system detects the decay of the fluorescence signal emission referring to the oxygen depletion over time due to the microorganism’s respiration. The system is flexible and allows either enumeration produced from an internal calibration, or a pass/fail test based on presence/absence of oxygen depletion over time. The reader software allows continuous measurements of oxygen depletion within the reader or endpoint measurements from externally incubated samples.
