TEMPO® Food Quality Indicators

Automated Platform

TEMPO® is an automated platform for the analysis of food quality indicators.
Quality indicators or hygienic parameters contribute to define the food quality, besides the food safety. 
They represent the biggest volume of analysis in typical food safety testing processes and help to control the process, environment and final product. 

TEMPO® enables food quality  analysts to master the enumeration of key parameters so that compliance can be confirmed on the final product and processes are optimized while conforming to HACCP guidance

  • Rapid results – it takes only 12 seconds to perform a Tempo test
  • 10 parameters only 1 protocol, no confirmation
  • Maximize your GENE-UP® experience thanks to our Lab Data Management System: CONNECT-UP!

TEMPO® enumerates the major Quality Indicators industrial labs focus on using a revolutionary concept called the "TEMPO® card", based on a robust and performant principle; MPN Most Probable Number. The 48 miniaturized tubes of the TEMPO® card improve the accuracy of the results and the recovery of the microorganisms through a 3,7log reading range. This unique and powerful food quality testing system dramatically simplifies analysis across a wide range of matrices.
