“BioLumix technology is based on monitoring changes in a microbial liquid growth medium in which the target microorganisms grow and are detected by unique dyes. The dyes change their color or fluorescence as metabolic processes take place. These changes are detected by optical sensors and monitored every 6 minutes.”-mybiolumix.com
At QC Test Lab we use the BioLumix machine to test for Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Total Acerbic count (TAC), Coliform Count, Yeast and Mold. The BioLumix machine allows us to have 48 hour turnaround time for samples that need to be tested in a hurry. It’s validated against USP <2021>, <2022> & <2023> and 21CFR Part 11 compliant.
All samples that require digestion are processed in our Anton Paar Multiwave 3000 Microwave.
ICP Heavy Metal Testing
Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) is an analytical technique used for the detection of trace metals. At QC Test Lab we use the ICP to determine how much Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, and Arsenic in parts per million your samples have.
