The MALTHUS System enables automatedanalysis of microbial activity, by measurement of changes in the electrical conductance of culturemedia. Since metabolic activity, rather thanbiomass is being measured, Malthus can provide afaster and more accurate result than available withtraditional methods.MALTHUS Systems can reduce analysis time andlabour costs for many routine QC tests in food,toiletries and other industrial samples. The abilityto handle large sample numbers and the flexibilityto add and remove individual samples, withoutaffecting others, makes it an ideal screening tool.MALTHUS is recognised as an officiallyapproved method by the Association of theOfficial Analytical Chemists (AOAC), the UKMinistry of Agriculture Fisheries and Foods(MAFF), the British Standards Institute (BSI) andthe United States Department of Agriculture(USDA).
