Bring Your Sterility Testing to the Next Level

SCANRDI® revolutionized rapid microbial detection when it was first introduced and its speed and sensitivity continue to answer market needs today.

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.

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.
