Quench-Gone Organic Modified (QGO-M™)

Using a single analysis, Quench–Gone Organic Modified (QGO-M) provides a rapid and interference-free determination of total microbiological concentration in any filterable organic fluid or organic-water mixture. Use this test kit to quantify total bioburden in organics–laden samples for rapid assessment of contamination and in conjunction with additional analyses for a complete process microbiological profile.
FeaturesTechnical DataApplications
  • ASTM D7687 & E2694 compliant.
  • Measure only living biomass via Cellular ATP.
  • Results available in < 5 minutes.
  • Low Detection Limit of nominally 0.25pg/mL (250 Microbial Equivalents per mL), although simple test modifications can allow even greater sensitivity.
  • All interferences such as organics, color, residual chemical, and other characteristics inherent to sample matrices are mitigated.
  • All materials are stable for two years at room temperature.*
