"The AutoSampler [integrated with the Celsis Innovate] provides us with a high volume, rapid and efficient testing system for our dairy products. It not only allows us to meet our customer demands more effectively, as we can release product sooner, but also ensures our product quality and safety. The barcode reader provides a perfect track and trace system for our controlled samples. In addition, we have found that the AutoSampler has a lot of flexibility as it is able to run test samples from different packaging designs, including cartons of varying volumes, bottles and coffee milk cups." Dr Johan Roeygens DC Quality Control, FrieslandCampina

"Now that we know we can reproducibly detect yeast and mould with AMPiScreen in 24 hours it’s expanded our ability to test certain raw materials with Celsis that we did not test before." Deidre Mitchell Microbiology Development Manager, Unilever
"With the use of AMPiScreen, when something's positive it's really positive. There's really no interpretation necessary. That's a real benefit." Deidre Mitchell Microbiology Development Manager
"Using Celsis, we now get results in one to two days, rather than three or four days. I also liked the science behind Celsis, and it was already very well-proven at the time." Mark Entrup USA Corporate Microbiologist

"The technology has been out there and Celsis has done a great job improving the technology over the past few years." Steve Allard Quality Services & Microbiology
"The FDA's positive view of our initial validation plan was enough to convince skeptics within our company's quality department that RMM deserved further attention. The two-tiered approach with RMMs is extremely effective. Ninety-five percent of the time, our products tested negative for contamination and we could release those products within 18-48 hours. For the five percent of cases where we found a positive reading, we would need to revert back to traditional testing methods for end product release. This way, we only had to delay release on a very small percentage of our products." Rich Boehler Microbiology Group Leader
Major Pharma Company
