Pathogen Detection made simple with the CERTUS System.

At CERTUS, We Deliver Solutions

Revolutionary technologies and strategic partnerships make CERTUS an innovative leader in food safety. From safety in food processing plants to third party lab testing equipment, CERTUS Solutions make the world a safer place to eat.

The CERTUS System

The CERTUS System includes everything you need for environmental monitoring in your food processing plant.

The Detection Unit provides real-time monitoring with simultaneous growth and detection. Grow, Read, Detect™
The Control Pad provides step-by-step directions, keeps records, and sends instant alerts to key stake-holders through text and email.
Detection Kits include Bio-Lock™ Sampling Swabs, Detection Tubes with pathogen-specific reagent dry-down particles, and pre-measured selective growth media.

One Instrument

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.

3 Step Workflow

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!

Anyone Can Perform

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.

Real Time Monitoring

The CERTUS System provides real-time monitoring through simultaneous enrichment and detection. Our Grow, Read, Detect™ technology provides fast, accurate results – alerting you of a problem hours (days!) sooner than before.

Fully Bio-Contained

The Bio-Lock Sampling Swab secures the environment from accidental contamination and enables you to move testing onsite for significantly faster results and reduced costs with no need for a laboratory or complicated technical training.

The Bio-Lock Sampling Swabs are designed so that, once securely closed, forms a permanent seal that can’t reopen.

Control the Data

The CERTUS System empowers you to be in control of pathogen testing, results and records. You can start a new test within minutes, access the most up-to-date testing information at all times and receive instant notification of a positive result.

Staff Efficiency

With the 3-Step Workflow, samples are quickly and easily collected and input into the Detection Unit for testing. Staff can then return to their other duties while the CERTUS System gets to work!

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.

FSMA Compliance

The CERTUS System makes it easy to maintain FSMA Compliance.


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.

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.

Solutions for Labs

At CERTUS, making food safe for consumers is our number one priority. That’s why we’ve partnered with Solus Scientific to bring high-volume testing to food safety labs throughout the United States.
