The RiboPrinter® microbial characterization system provides the speed, accuracy and resolution needed to identify bacteria and compare them at the strain level for efficient and consistent characterization. Using powerful DNA-based information, the RiboPrinter® system provides an automated genetic snapshot (RiboPrint™ pattern) to identify and characterize environmental isolates, pathogens, spoilage organisms, control strains, beneficial organisms or any bacterium that is important to the pharmaceutical, personal care and food safety industries.
From start to finish, the RiboPrinter® system process is automated, simplifying operator training and minimizing errors due to technique. Loading and operating the characterization unit are easy and intuitive. The workstation software is user-friendly, providing sophisticated data analysis that eliminates the need for subjective interpretation and providing clear, reliable results in less than 8 hours.
Every time a sample is run, the RiboPrinter® system produces an exact genetic snapshot of organisms linked to historical data. With a comprehensive, dynamic picture of any microbial environment, technicians can track and manage data at the strain level, letting them pinpoint contamination with more speed, ease and precision than ever before possible.
