Said to be the first fully-automated testing system for measuring
bacterial aerobic plate count (APC), the GreenLight series provides
results between minutes and 8 hours, depending on the bacterial
load. This is more than 6 times faster than the traditional agar or
film plate methods, which typically require 48 hours to achieve a
meaningful microbial count. Shorter testing cycles provide packers and
processors with the potential of getting their perishable food items to
the consumer in less time.
