SCANRDI®* Rapid Microbial Method


A Faster Way to Comply

The SCANRDI® is a unique technology that enables Eagle to deliver sterility test results in 2 business days, allowing sterile compounding facilities to release product faster than when utilizing the compendial USP <71> method. SCANRDI® has revolutionized rapid microbial detection and its combination of speed and sensitivity remains unrivaled to this day(a).

The Limitation of USP <71>

In order to fully comply with USP <797>, a compounding facility producing sterile product must develop a formal quality assurance (QA) program.

One of the characteristics of a QA program includes routine testing of sterile preparations. However, the USP <71> sterility test method presents the following limitations:

14 Days of Incubation

The compendial method of testing takes 14 to 18 days to complete, due to the incubation period required in the testing procedure.

Decrease in Product Shelf Life

As a result, a sterile compound with a standard 30-day expiry loses approximately half of its shelf life due to sterility testing.

The SCANRDI® Solution

Results in as little as 1 business day

Now there is a faster way to comply with USP <797> and ensure your patients are receiving quality compounds. SCANRDI® is non-growth-based technology sensitive enough to detect a single bacterial, yeast or mold contaminant in a matter of hours. Even spores, stressed and fastidious organisms are detected in minutes, offering an extraordinarily rapid alternative to traditional 14-day sterility testing(a).

The ScanRDI® is accepted alternative to the official compendial sterility test method.**

ScanRDI® rapidly detects viable microbial cells down to one micobial cell without the need for growth or cell multiplication

This removes the extended incubation period included in the USP <71> test method, so results are ready in as little as 1 day.†
