Company hosts live demonstrations of the Growth Direct System at new European headquarters in Munich, Germany

Rapid Micro Biosystems, a leading provider of automated, non-destructive, rapid microbial detection, has opened a state-of-the-art microbiology laboratory and headquarters located in Freising, just outside Munich in Germany.

The new location provides office and applications development space as well as a dedicated laboratory environment for showcasing the new range of the Growth Direct System – the company's automated, rapid, non-destructive microbial enumeration device – in a lab environment.

Rapid Micro Biosystems will host one-day workshops showcasing the Growth Direct System and its applications for sterility, environmental monitoring, water and bioburden testing. The full day workshop will include a live, hands-on demonstration of the system and sample preparation techniques as well as presentation of testing and validation data.
