Testing for pathogens is as easy as 1, 2, 3 with the CERTUS System. Simply collect your sample, insert into the Detection Unit, and the System does the rest!
Introducing the CERTUS System
The CERTUS System includes everything you need for environmental monitoring in your food processing plant.
The CERTUS System includes everything you need to perform fast, accurate, environmental monitoring in-house. No need for bags, stomacher, centrifuge, incubator, pipettes or bio-safe labs.
Environmental monitoring for food processing plants has never been easier – simply collect a sample, start the test and wait for the result. The CERTUS System provides real-time monitoring through patented technology that simultaneously grows and detects pathogens giving you fast, accurate results.
Perform in-house environmental monitoring with confidence. The CERTUS System is fully bio-contained, thus securing the environment from accidental contamination and enabling food producers to move testing on-site for significantly faster results and reduced costs with no need for a laboratory or complicated technical training.
The CERTUS Detection Unit utilizes revolutionary new technology to simultaneously grow, read and detect pathogens – alerting you of a problem hours (days!) sooner than before.
With the CERTUS System, key stakeholders receive instant notification of a positive test result. Alerts are sent through email and text so remediation can begin immediately.
Through patented technology, the CERTUS System provides continuous pathogen monitoring – meaning you don’t have to wait until the end of enrichment for a positive result.
Now anyone in your plant can perform environmental pathogen testing. No specialized training is needed to use the CERTUS System. Simply collect your sample and insert into the Detection Unit following step-by-step directions on your Control Pad.
The CERTUS System automatically logs all testing for traceability compliance. All sample site, date, result and remediation records are permanently stored on the CERTUS System to provide instant reporting and FSMA compliant data sets.
Built for rapid, precise results, CERTUS’s new pathogen detection system provides a simple solution for in-house environmental monitoring in food processing plants.
With CERTUS, you’re in control.
With the CERTUS System, preparation is easy and requires no specialized expertise or equipment. Using your Bio-Lock™ Sampling Swab, swipe the surface of the day’s predetermined testing location. Then pour the pre-measured selective growth media from your kit into the Detection Tube.
To ensure simplicity in the workflow, the CERTUS System includes a Control Pad and software to guide the user through the testing process.
Once your sample is collected, insert the Detection Tube into the Detection Unit. Then simply click “Start Test,” and let the CERTUS technology work for you.
The CERTUS Grow, Read, Detect™ process utilizes patented CERTUS technology for simultaneous enrichment and detection – which means fast, accurate results for you!
Real-time monitoring with fast time to a positive result empowers you with early notification of contamination and allows for prompt remediation. In the event of a positive result, notification instantly alerts stakeholders in a variety of ways including email and text.
