The MuScan(TM) device allows for detection of many different micro-organisms like bacteria, fungi and yeasts. As each image from the membrane is in focus throughout the whole image field, all microbes retained on the membrane are efficiently detected. Herewith the number of contaminants in the sample is accurately measured, even with higher precision compared to compendial methods. In contrast with other fluorescent microscopes, there is no need for manual focussing throughout the sample. moreover, due to the use of highly condensed beams of light with sharp edged wavelengths, the effect and thus impact of sample bleaching is highly limited. This in combination with storage of each image for subsequent image analysis, provides a major advantage for accurate analysis and quantification of samples.

Even though the current MuScan(TM) device is optimal for its current use, we continue to further improve the MuScan(TM) device by introducing more and other features. These developments are always defined based on customer experiences and desires. If you have a specific request or feature you would like to have implemented in your MuScan(TM) system, please let us know.
The CE-marked MuScan(TM) device, including GMP software, needs to be installed in a laboratory under defined conditions. To ensure proper installation under cGMP guidelines, we offer Installation and Operation Qualification documentation, customized for the MuScan(TM) device at your site. The IQ / OQ can be performed either by the customer, by Innosieve Diagnostics or your local contact. To allow internal validation of the MuScan(TM) and the GMP software in combination with our Sieve-ID(TM) kits, we have prepared a PQ document. This PQ document will allow you to perform initial validation (so-called PQ1) of the MuScan(TM) and kits prior to matrix testing specific for your application (PQ2). For more information about the IQ / OQ / PQ documentation, please contact us.Contact us
