If you missed the recent webinar presented by TSI product and subject experts on the BioTrak Real-Time Viable Particle Counter, here’s your chance to catch up. The hugely informative webinar covered the latest updates to BioTrak’s impressive capabilities and is now available online as a recording.
Included in the refinements to BioTrak is a dramatic increase in sensitivity and detection capability for mould spores – challenging organisms that can decimate the integrity of an aseptic process. These BioTrak technology updates support Annex 1 compliance and Pharma 4.0 implementation.
TSI product specialist, Mike Dingle, details how new algorithms were developed from defence industry research to aerosolise mould growth, then tested and validated, leading to a transformation aspect of BioTrak’s performance related to fungi, moulds and bacterial detection – along with improved viable particle discrimination.
Among the fascinating insights derived from TSI’s empirical testing of the new BioTrak algorithm is the impact of viable particle concentrations on the instrument’s detection capabilities. Tested at four different particle concentrations from low (single-digit to low double-digit concentration per m3) to high (2,000 to 3,000 particles per m3), the results prove that detection is entirely dependent on particle composition, not concentration – which is exactly what manufacturers want.
