RiboPrinter® System

Automated molecular method for powerful microbial monitoring.

Enhance quality assurance by using the RiboPrinter® System to quickly and accurately identify and differentiate contaminating organisms. The RiboPrinter® System generates genetic, strain-level ‘fingerprints’ of bacteria and compares them against thousands of other patterns to identify contaminating organisms and how they entered your production environment. This critical information helps you design interventions for safety and quality that are highly targeted, effective and efficient.

Patented process. Rapid results.

The RiboPrinter® System uses a patented technology to process bacterial samples and extract data, derived from the gene fragments that encode their ribosomal RNA. That data is used to generate RiboPrint™ patterns, which are genetic fingerprints of individual samples. The system then compares these patterns against others in the database to characterize (group) samples at the subspecies level. The patterns can also be used to identify genus and species.

Track and trend bacterial contamination from any sample.

RiboPrinter® System provides automated microbial identification & characterization, allowing users to identify, characterize and trace contaminants to their source. This powerful molecular method identifies unknown bacterial isolates and characterizes them at, or below the species level. Isolate sources can be raw materials, in-process samples, the processing environment and finished products.
