MicroSnap™ Indicator Organism Tests (Hygiena)

The new MicroSnap platform bridges the time gap between ATP and bacterial culture results with convenient, 8-hour or less tests for E. coli, Coliform, Enterobacteriaceae, and TVC. Additionally, a test for Listeria species is in development. MicroSnap tests are read by the EnSURE monitoring system and results are recorded with SureTrend software. EnSURE measures both ATP monitoring and organisms tests, enabling food and beverage processors to acquire an accurate status of plant hygiene and product quality during the same working day or shift. Knowing test results sooner prevents recalls, reduces waste, shortens hold time, and enables a quicker response when contamination issues arise. 

The EnSURE instrument stores up to 5,000 locations, 200 user ID’s and 100 test plans. It also comes with “SureTrend” data analysis software to store and track results:

  • The “dashboard” puts important data right in front of you
  • Pre-loaded reports are customizable and makes data analysis fast and easy
  • Automated emails keeps you informed

In addition, EnSURE is capable of running multiple tests in addition to microbial detection, including:

  • Environmental ATP using UltraSnap for measurement of cleaning efficiency – detects to 1.0 femtomoles
  • Allergen cross-contamination prevention using SuperSnap – detects to 0.1 femtomoles
  • AquaSnap for water ATP for biomass or organic residue

Four specific microbial tests are available:

  • E. coli
  • Coliform including E. coli, Klebsiella, Citrobacter, Enterobacter
  • Enterobacteriaceae (available very soon) includes Salmonella, Yersinia, Serratia, Shigella, E. coli, Klebsiella, Citrobacter, Enterobacter
  • Total Viable Count (TVC) which detects Gram positive and Gram negative aerobic and facultative anaerobic bacteria

(The E. Coli and Coliform tests are AOAC-RI Performance TestedSM Methods (#071020).

The first three test methods give results in 6 hours for enumeration and in 8 hours for presence/absence. The TVC test gives results for enumeration in 7 hours. These same-day results have many benefits for raw material testing, plant environmental monitoring and finished product testing:

Raw materials

  • Prevent contaminated materials from entering production
  • Avoid hold times that shorten shelf life
  • Prevent equipment down time
  • Quickly verify Certificates of Analysis

Plant environment

  • Rapidly evaluate the effectiveness of cleaning and sanitation from a microbial perspective
  • Document due diligence
  • Identify and troubleshoot in hours instead of days

Finished Product

  • Release product sooner
  • React to contamination before shipment
  • Prevent recalls
  • Reduce outside laboratory costs
  • Protect your brand and reputation

The Micro-Snap test method requires incubation. Click here for the Micro-Snap Incubator Item No. 4161-80
