IMD-A systems provide clean room environmental monitoring in real time, instantly detecting microbes so you can act. Advanced optics and signal processing help reduce risk and require no staining, reagents or human intervention. Save time and money by knowing what’s lurking in your environment.


How it Works

IMD-A-600 Series

Instantaneous Microbial Detection Systems

BioVigilant’s IMD-A 600 revolutionizes environmental air monitoring for microbial contamination. Continuous, immediate and real-time…

Using proprietary optical technology, the IMD-A system is capable of simultaneously detecting both size and intrinsic fluorescence of airborne particulates-screening for biologic particles as small as 0.5 microns. The system offers a ready means for determining the microbial content of an aerosol sample on a particle-by-particle basis, thereby providing a continuous, real-time analysis of environmental bioburden. This constant monitoring and effective trending deliver knowledge to act, actions that could prevent excursions from leading to the catastrophic loss of a batch.

IMD-A Model 600 Microbial Challenge and Interferent Test Results

IMD-A-series systems are designed to continuously monitor air and detect the presence of both single and agglomerated microbes in real time. Testing was performed to demonstrate that the IMD-A-600 system is equivalent to, if not better than, the compendial microbiological method in the detection of four relevant microorganisms. Comparison of the IMD-A-600 system to the compendial culture-based method was assessed through the side-by-side testing of two IMD-A-600 systems and three air samplers commonly used in pharmaceutical manufacturing environment — the SAS Super 100, MAS 100NT, and SMA.
