Our products

We all know that Time is Money and, in that sense, Every hour counts.  Whether you're performing routine product testing for product release or investigating a contamination event having accurate, actionable information as quickly as possible contributes to cost effective, efficient manufacturing and good product quality. Consumer product manufacturing is continually challenged to become more efficient and get products to consumers faster. You’ve probably already looked at ways to reduce cost through staff efficiencies, production process streamlining… but have you considered another simple way to become more efficient and save money? With Celsis® rapid microbial detection and Accugenix® microbial identification, you can keep your manufacturing operations running efficiently and smoothly, lower your cost to manufacture, and protect your reputation.


If you’re using traditional microbial testing, then you’re missing out on what is probably the single greatest opportunity to take days out of your inventory investment. Your money is tied up in inventory that can’t be released until you get microbial results. Nothing will change unless you adopt newer, more efficient methods. Celsis® rapid microbial detection can provide accurate micro results in 24 hours, cutting days from your production cycle by confirming product quality significantly faster than traditional methods, products move quickly and efficiently into distribution.


In the event of a contamination, the first step is to get a correct identification of the organism. Because operational decisions are based on microbial identifications, it’s critically important that those identifications are accurate and reproducible. This can only be done if you make use of an identification method that's capable of generating an accurate ID coupled with a database that is relevant to your manufacturing environment.

For over 30 years, Accugenix® has delivered accurate microbial identifications from our validated library and provided a 99% on-time delivery rate. We use the latest DNA sequence-based and MALDI-TOF technologies paired with our validated Accugenix® library, the industry’s most up-to-date microbial database, encompassing 14,000+ relevant species to provide accurate and reliable microbial identifications. With eight microbial identification laboratories worldwide, our global footprint of technical support laboratories operates with a shared network of expertise and experience, dedicated to identifying your microbial isolates and increasing your laboratory efficiency and accuracy in resolving contamination risks.

Tracking and trending environmental monitoring data

Accugenix® is more than an identification service. Our customer web portal includes a robust Tracking and Trending solution for all Accugenix® identifications with customizable features for data entry and reports.
