Milliflex® Quantum

A fast bioburden testing technique to uncover contamination events earlier


Our Milliflex® Quantum system is designed for fast, fluorescence-based quantitative detection of microorganisms in the course of bioburden testing in pharmaceutical and cosmetics manufacturing facilities. It detects microbial colonies well before they become visible to the eye and thus significantly reduces the time to result, which may take several days when using traditional microbiological methods.

This easy-to-use and simple system covers a broad range of filterable matrices and uses industry standard membrane filtration techniques to detect viable and culturable microorganisms down to 1 CFU per sample. Test results are comparable to your current microbial test results. This facilitates validation of this rapid system, which can be used in any laboratory. The Milliflex® Quantum does not destroy the detected microcolonies - it is therefore possible to identify any detected microorganisms by subsequently using your established ID methodology.

Milliflex® Quantum helps you to address contamination events sooner, avoiding line shutdowns, enabling earlier release of products to the market and reducing storage costs. On top of this, it enables you to gain better control and understanding of your manufacturing process. Keep pace with today’s increasing production demands and reduce your time to result!


  • Raw material (media, buffers, pharmaceutical ingredients and water)
  • In-process samples (bioburden prior to sterilization, CIP/SIP samples, cell culture/fermentation samples, media for fermentation, buffers for manufacturing, and intermediate process samples)
  • Final product
  • Environmental samples


  • Non-destructive method enables reliable identification using any ID technology
  • Easy-to-use system and simple workflow requires minimal training
  • Results comparable to compendial method, enabling faster validation so that you can benefit from rapid detection sooner
  • Economical, robust system
  • Compact hardware fits on any laboratory bench
Merck Millipore provides technical support and a comprehensive services offering to help you save your QC resources and facilitate the implementation of your MilliFlex® Quantum into your daily testing routine. Our highly experimented teams are there to assist you.
