Growth Promotion Testing

The pharmaceutical industry is required to perform QC with controls in the range of 10 to 100 cfu for growth promotion and sterility testing. BioBall has three products that are ideal for these QC applications:

1. BioBall MultiShot 550 used with BioBall Re-Hydration Fluid

Designed to provide 10 precise inoculations over an 8 hour period.

  • Each BioBall has a batch mean of between 500 and 600 cfu
  • When re-hydrated with 1.1mL of re-hydration fluid provides 10 x 100uL doses, each containing 50 cfu
  • 8 hour stability when re-hydrated with BioBall Re-Hydration Fluid and stored between 2ºC to 8ºC.
  • Ideal when several controls are needed at the same time or within the same day
