Rapid microbiology tests, also known as alternative microbiological methods, are the technologies that allow the user to get microbiology test results faster compared to the traditional culture-plate methods. Conventional microbial analyses require extensive manual operations. In addition, the necessity for visual determination of the growth of microbial colonies leads to longer assay times. Rapid microbial tests provide faster results, but the key to acceptance is staying consistent with the compendial method. The rapid microbiology tests have been broadly segmented into immunology-based methods, nucleic acid amplification tests, mass spectrometry-based methods, flow cytometry-based methods, growth-based detection technologies, and biochemical tests.

The nucleic acid amplification tests are further segmented into a polymerase chain reaction, nucleic acid sequence-based amplification, and others. Growth-based detection technologies are further classified into ATP-bioluminescence, colorimeter detection, and autofluorescence detection. Nucleic acid amplification test-based methods held the largest share in the rapid microbiology market due to their wide application in the pharmaceutical industry. Moreover, low cost and high speed would further fuel the market growth of immunology-based methods.
