MML offers 3-5 day turnaround times on Micros using our Biolumix system. This a USP verified instrument. We conduct side-by-side with USP methods on all new products. If the product has any of the tests fail side-by-side, we will use traditional testing methods-TAT on traditional methods is 7-10 days. Most all products work on the Biolumix, except probiotics, and can also use Rapid Petrifilm AOAC approved methods for those that don’t work on the Biolumix.
