I'm starting a new project in our poultry proccesing plant: implemetation of rapid microbiology (pathogens mainly: Salmonella, Listeria and Campy)
We know the bigest cons of any rapid method would be the cost per analysis and the return of investment can be significant (years). Now to overcome those cons, I need to find some pros...but here's the catch: the first saving that comes to mind would be the storage expenses of the hold batch during the analysis time but acctually the saving here is very little because of how we deal with the space (I have double checked this with different supervisors) so isn't enough to justify the implementation.
Does anyone have any experience in the implementation of a rapid microbiology method in the lab? Can you share some other pros to help me justify the project?
