nomad On-Site Microbial Test Kits

Portable, adaptable, intuitive microbial testing devices

Test anytime, anywhere

Data is precious for making better-informed decisions. In industrial settings, the ability to test anywhere, anytime, and on a moment’s notice, without disrupting your workflow means you can capture the data when it is most relevant

nomad On-Site Microbial Test Kits are field versions of a laboratory test, designed for maximum convenience without compromising data quality. They fit in your pocket, require just two minutes to complete on the plant floor or anywhere else, and you collect quantitative results with a limit of detection lower than most rapid methods for hygiene, process or environmental monitoring.  

Even better, our IoT versions work with our mobile app to capture all the important process context information, test parameters and comments, pen-free!  

What are nomad on-site microbial test kits and how do they work?

Using nomad On-Site Microbial Test Kits is easy and intuitive, but following the same protocol for every test will help ensure the best results.

Sample and test with ease

All-in-One

nomad devices include the sampling container, test filter, and culture media, everything you need to test your sample in a single package wherever you are/on-site or off-site.

Simple-to-Use

Anyone in your organization can capture reliable, accurate test data with very limited training, thanks to nomad’s easy Test, Forget & Count approach.

Lab-free and IoT-ready

Our nomad On-Site Microbial Test Kits help you skip expensive labs and long waiting times, while our IoT devices make it even simpler to integrate your results into a comprehensive microbial risk management system.

nomad test types and range

The testing devices are configured for a wide variety of situations, sample types and applications     You can choose the type of kit you need, color-coded in red, blue or yellow, as well any of our available formats for liquids for surfaces. 

Our full nomad Test Kits range is available in all of the following formats:
