Speedy Breedy® is an easy to use, portable, precision respirometer that has been designed for both industrial and laboratory applications.

Speedy Breedy® can:

  • Test raw ingredients and finished goods for contamination in beer and beverages
  • Shorten the time of positive release in food processing
  • Test for contamination in drinking water or process water in industrial applications
  • Test for contamination in pharmaceutical, household and hygiene products
  • Test effectiveness of decontamination processes following a wet strip of all equipment
  • Test sterility of food and beverage packaging
  • Identify the presence of bacteria in oil and paint
  • Test potentially detrimental contaminants, growth and metabolic promoters or inhibitors
  • Assist researchers to develop products and techniques where the presence or absence of bacteria needs to be understood, prevented or encouraged

Speedy Breedy® is a single (test versus control or aerobic plus anaerobic), or dual sample, two chamber instrument. Speedy Breedy® maintains culture conditions within purpose designed, disposable culture vessels. Samples are inoculated into the culture vessel, while Speedy Breedy® closely controls growth conditions to a pre-determined protocol to facilitate rapid replication of cells or microbes.

Speedy Breedy's® robust, disposable 50 ml culture vessel eliminates the need for the cleaning of potentially hazardously contaminated bottles. Culture vessels are provided sterile, empty or pre-filled with a range of dry media.

Speedy Breedy® can be used independently or connected to a PC. Using the PC users can design and download pre-determined protocols to Speedy Breedy® and upload experimental results for analysis. Speedy Breedy® also has a removable SD card for field research. Connecting Speedy Breedy® to a PC enables data visualization, allowing users to monitor experiments in near real time.
