Bring Your Sterility Testing to the Next Level

SCANRDI® revolutionized rapid microbial detection when it was first introduced and still today its speed and sensitivity remain unrivaled.

Its unique technology delivers actionable sterility results in 4 hours or less, so you know you can continue with production or if you need to take action immediately.

When You Need to Know Now

SCANRDI® enables same-shift detection of microbial contaminants in filterable drug products. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), European Medicines Agency (EMA), and other regulatory bodies support the use of validated Rapid Microbiological Methods (RMM) for sterile product release - especially in the case of shelf-life products, where a rapid result is more suitable than a compendial 14-day test.


  • Same-shift results
  • Release your product faster


  • Tested & proven technology
  • Make decisions with confidence


  • Full validation support: URS completion guide, IOQ guide, primary validation guide, suitability guide and Drug Master File (DMF)
  • 21 CFR part 11 enabled software

Proven Technology

  • Long history of use for final product sterility, in-process bioburden control & water testing
  • Down to 1 microbe/filtrable volume
  • >200 compatible products

Broad Specificity

  • Universal fluorescent labeling
  • Bacteria, yeast, and mold detection




  • Enhanced user-friendliness, encompassing streamlined handling, optimal sample visibility, and effortless packaging access
  • Improved robustness with high-quality materials to minimize operator errors
  • Enhanced user experience facilitated by the device, necessitating minimal manipulation with heightened precision
  • Enhanced device functionality leads to increased workflow efficiency and reduced error risk

Improve Productivity and Compliance

* non-exhaustive list

SCANRDI® is a rapid, proprietary microbiological solution combining universal cell labeling and solid-phase cytometry with the ability to detect bacteria, yeasts, molds – both in vegetative and sporulated forms - and yeasts. Test applications include:

  • Raw material testing
  • Water testing 
  • In-process product testing
  • Chromatography columns health check
  • Investigations
  • Product release

As it’s a non-growth based method, stressed and fastidious organisms including those in VBNC state (Viable but Non-culturable) can be detected as well, making SCANRDI® a powerful tool to monitor and ensure the rapid detection of microorganisms in pharmaceutical products.
