Rapid Bacteria and Fungi Detection in Only 3 Hours with Microsart® ATMP Sterile Release

ATMPs are tested using qPCR that detects a broad range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial and fungal contaminants.

Avoid lengthy 14-day cultivation protocols and save time. TaqMan® probes ensure the highest level of qPCR specificity. No need to perform uncertain melting curve analysis.

Validation standards for required bacterial and fungal species in Microsart® ATMP Sterile Release are lyophilized to render them non-infectious. We provide step-by-step, matrix-specific validation guidance from Sartorius qPCR experts. Avoid the risk of cross-contamination with individually packaged, sample-specific vials.

Microsart® ATMP Sterile Release kits were developed in close cooperation with authorities, and are validated according to EP 5.1.6 and USP <1223> for sensitivity, specificity, and robustness.

This test is not a replacement for the classic sterility test according to USP<71> or EP 2.6.1.

The ready-to-use master mix has the DNA for internal control already included. Avoid false-negative results and minimize the number of reactions you need to run.

Microsart® ATMP Sterile Release Kits can be used with any qPCR cycler able to detect the fluorescent dyes FAM® and ROX®. Our clear, color-coded reagents guide the user through the short and simple protocol. Lyophilized reagents ensure consistent quality without the need for freezer storage.
