3P® ENTERPRISE – Microbiological Environment Monitor


Environmental monitoring (EM) is the main microbiological control performed by pharmaceutical industries. While multiple hand-written and transcription operations remain the standard procedure in use for thousands of samples per month, the daily processes often result in errors leading to time-consuming investigations, low value-added tasks and data that is not fully compliant. As a result: major impacts on batch release, on process efficiency and ultimately patient safety.

By positioning an end-to-end and integrated solution with proven reading performances, bioMérieux allows healthcare industries to trust their data and empower their EM results to make decisions reliable and optimize the process efficiency.



  • Kinetic reading
  • Counting  standardizition and performances
  • 300 plates
  • Images recorded every hour by a high resolution camera
  • Single or dual temperatures management

Ease of use

  • User guidance all along the workflow (scan plates, intuitive software and system)
  • Supervision and validation of all samples facilitated
  • Paperless EM process

Error Avoidance

  • Ensure expiration date, plate type, sampling & incubation duration
  • Real-time traceability and tracking of samples
  • Rely on alerts and alarms along the process


  • Traceability analysis
  • Audit trail
  • Alarm reports
  • Production and laboratory view for supervision of samples
Ensure compliance and data integrity through the entire EM workflow
  • Data Integrity & full traceability: the EM data and actions are tracked from sampling to  final results, including plates images taken and recorded every hour by a high resolution camera. The solution is audit ready and 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
  • Paperless, guidance and conformity checks: this paperless solution provides guidance and conformity checks all along the process to reduce risk of manual errors and related investigations.
  • Enhance digital EM experience with our 3P® CONNECT software.
  • Counting performances and standardization: with the 3P® STATION, get more robust and standardized counting data thanks to automated kinetic counting.
    Besides, with 3P® SMART PLATES you beneficate from high growth promotion performances.
    3P® STATION has been demonstrated to have high reading performances at least equal to humain eyes.

Maximize process efficiency to empower your EM program

  • Modularity and flexible integration: each 3P® STATION holds up to 300 plates, can be flexibly laid out across the facility and is supporting single temperature or double temperature cycles with two loading modes possible.
  • Digitalize and Automatize the entire EM process and reduce manual non-added value and time consuming steps.
  • Avoid process errors and reduce the number of deviations and investigations.
  • Get early notifications of OOS (Out Of Specification) samples as soon as they are detected by the 3P® STATION allowing to gain valuable time and take corrective actions sooner.
  • Maximize the performances of your trending and analysis on-demand reports.

Overall peace of mind for all operational stakeholders

  • Implementation process: as your partner, we’re fully dedicated to handling the full implementation process so you can keep your business up and running.
  • Comprehensive validation services: documentation package and validation execution to ease the validation process. Continuous operations support to keep your operations running smoothly.


Bridging the gap between standard processes and automation, 3P® ENTERPRISE revolutionizes the future of EM. From sampling to trending, keep control with an end-to-end fully digitalized and automated workflow, increase your efficiency and ensure your products are safe and compliant.
