Rapid bacteria detection in only 3 hours with Microsart® ATMP Bacteria Kit

ATMPs are tested using qPCR detecting a broad range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacterial 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 species in Microsart® Bacteria Kits 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® Bacteria 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.

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® Bacteria 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.

Two kits are available:

  1. For testing cell-based therapeutics (ATMPs) such as autologous chondrocyte transplants or CAR-T cells: Microsart® ATMP Bacteria Kit
  2. For detection of Bacteria DNA in cell culture supernatants in research and development labs: Microsart® RESEARCH Bacteria Kit
