Bactiscan™ and BactiscanPRO™

TCS Biosciences are delighted to announce we are the UK distributors for the EIT Bactiscan™ and BactiscanPRO™ range of handheld bacteria and biofilm detection systems

Bactiscan™ products utilise proprietary wave-alternating UV light technology to locate surface contamination, especially as a prelude to ATP swab testing in production facilities. Being lightweight, and easy-to-use, one operator can examine large areas quickly, with minimal training required. The products are environmentally friendly and safe for people and products, as it requires no chemicals to generate results. BactiscanPRO™ utilises still photography and video capture capability for maintenance and remedial works.

Bactiscope™ also uses the same wave-alternating UV light technology, but is designed to inspect awkward to access areas and inside pipework. Images or video captured can be uploaded to an internal quality system for audit purposes or documented corrective action.

Extremely environmentally friendly as it requires no chemicals or dyes.

  • Immediately isolate areas of bacteria, biofilms, mould, product residue and many other contaminants
  • Inspect large surface areas quickly and easily
  • Environmentally friendly, non-invasive, and safe to handle / use
  • For most areas, downtime is not required
  • Can help save money by making other testing, such as ATP swab tests, more targeted and efficient

Incorrect accreditation symbol, 24 January - 1 March 2023

We would like to apologise to our customers who viewed and/or printed Certificates of Analysis for our Selectrol® products between 24 January and 1 March 2023. The 'Test Report on Selectrol® Disc Quality Control samples from Lot xxxxxxxx' section incorrectly included the BSI certification mark rather than the UKAS accreditation symbol. This has now been corrected. If you have any questions, please contact qc@tcsbiosciences.co.uk.
