A 3-Minute Introduction To Rapid Sterility Testing

Rapid sterility is an alternative test method to the US Pharmacopeia (USP) General Chapter <71>, Ph.Eur. 2.6.1, and JP 4.06 sterility tests that allows for shorter incubation periods and faster results. A typical sterility test has 14 full days of incubation and uses analyst observations to generate results, whereas a rapid sterility test is reduced to just five days of incubation – a 64% reduction in processing time. Rapid sterility also incorporates more sophisticated, computer-generated results, which eliminate observation bias. Alcami utilizes the Milliflex® Rapid System for the rapid sterility test, which uses adenosine triphosphate (ATP) bioluminescence for detection of microorganisms after five days.
