bioMérieux Launches TEMPO® AC, a New Automated Test for the Rapid Enumeration of Total Flora in Food Products

bioMérieux, a world leader in the field of in vitro diagnostics, launches TEMPO® AC, a new automated test which enumerates total flora in food products and environmental samples in 24 hours. With its fully-automated reading, this new TEMPO® test will help agri-food laboratories to save time and release their product faster. TEMPO® AC has already obtained the AOAC RI (Research Institute) validation.

The new TEMPO® AC test allows the enumeration of total aerobic mesophilic flora in as little as 24 hours. With such a solution, laboratories can provide information more rapidly to their customers, accelerate corrective action plans for out of specification results and speed-up the time to market, where positive release is a requirement.

The automated TEMPO® system meets the needs of our customers in the food industry with a cost effective solution that is less time-consuming and labor-intensive than traditional methods,” says Jean-Marc Durano, Corporate Vice President, Industrial Microbiology Unit. ”This new TEMPO® test reflects bioMérieux’s commitment to always propose solutions to help improve food safety.”

The fully automated TEMPO ®system, based on traditional MPN (Most Probable Number), ensures optimal user convenience, reduced hands-on time and faster turnaround time for accurate and standardized results. TEMPO® AC (aerobic count) completes the system’s menu, covering most quality indicator testing needs: TEMPO® EC (Escherichia coli), TEMPO® TC (Total Coliforms), TEMPO® CC (Coliforms Count), TEMPO® STA (Staphylococcus), TEMPO® EB (Enterobacteriaceae), TEMPO® YM (Yeast & Mold) and TEMPO® LAB (Lactic Acid Bacteria).

TEMPO® AC is already AOAC RI validated for a wide variety of food matrices, petfood and environmental samples.
