When compared to traditional microbiological methods, that may take days or even weeks to deliver a result, RMM’s output is given in a timely manner with increased precision and sensitivity. In an industrial environment, this could lead to numerous advantages such as early detection of microbiological contamination and increased control over the manufacture process...
