The "TEMPO System" is accredited to quality indicator enumeration in food products by AFNOR, internationally recognized institution. The quality indicators that can be determined with the TEMPO system include:
- Total aerobic mesophilic flora
- Total and/or thermotolerant coliforms
- E. Coli
- Staphylococcus Aureus
- Yeasts and molds
TEMPO allows to get faster results than the traditional method (ie 24 - 48 hours) and also allows a faster qualification and orientation of the raw materials, corrective actions more quickly in the event of non-compliance, accelerated release of finished products and a better stock rotation.
Foods and surface swabs.
The culture media used with the TEMPO system contain fluorescence indicators. Based on the number and size of the fluorescent or non-fluorescent wells of the appropriate cards in which is loaded the sample to be analyzed, the TEMPO system, through a calculation of MPN type, derives the number of microorganisms initially present in the sample.
