Transforming industry with automated microbial monitoring
Introducing the next evolution of 2nd Generation ATP® testing with BugCount® Guardian, a completely automated device that’s integrated directly into your industrial process. BugCount® Guardian draws samples, prepares and runs tests, and provides results — all without operator intervention.
Realize the benefits of autonomous microbial monitoring
BugCount® Guardian harnesses the power of LuminUltra’s proven, proprietary 2nd Generation ATP® technology, relied on by industries for decades to provide fast, accurate assessment of total microbial load.
BugCount® Guardian directly integrates into your industrial process, enabling it to:
- Automatically draw samples at regular intervals
- Perform the 2nd Generation ATP® test completely autonomously
- Return results which are available both locally on the instrument and uploaded via network connectivity into centralized software for analysis and review
Enable faster decision-making to stay ahead of issues
BugCount® Guardian streamlines data collection, enabling early detection of anomalies and system changes. Take action more quickly when problems arise, resulting in significant savings associated with preventing product spoilage, avoiding operational downtime, or risks to health.
Building on years of research, technology development, and collaboration with industry partners, BugCount® Guardian has outperformed competitors in independent trials in industrial applications such as brewing pasteurization, cooling tower operations, and hydrofracking.
The BugCount® Guardian advantage
BugCount® Guardian automates the entire microbial monitoring process, from sample collection to testing and reporting.
Results you can trust
Measure the ATP of all microorganisms present in a sample for the most accurate picture. Other types of testing can can miss unculturable microorganisms.
Designed for industry
Intended for industrial process applications – sample types with low solids and moderate bioburden.
Results are reported in pg ATP/mL ensuring accurate, quantitative results that can be accurately compared over time.
Rapid early warning
Catch issues before they get to a breaking point with proactive monitoring and data analytics at your fingertips.
