Who is QualiTru?

Launched in 1983 by Darrell Bigalke, QualiTru Sampling Systems (formerly QMI) started with a single product (now called the QualiTru TruStream Septum). Designed for samples to be drawn a single time from each sterilized channel, the high-quality, food-grade quality septum dramatically reduces the risk of sample contamination.

In 1985, when serious outbreaks of dairy-related foodborne illnesses caused by Salmonella and Listeria sickened thousands of people in the U.S., Bigalke played a central role in helping shape the establishment and adoption of the new sampling standards in the dairy industry. Bigalke, the dairy industry, and key regulatory bodies all shared the same goal: to initiate process monitoring measures to reduce the chances of future foodborne illness outbreaks in the dairy industry.

Today, QualiTru Sampling Systems offers a full line of advanced, cost-effective, and easy-to-use systems that enable the dairy and liquid foods industries to perform inline aseptic process sampling to help ensure that their microbial testing is based on accurate sampling. QualiTru Sampling Systems has an unparalleled network of subject matter experts (SMEs) in the dairy and liquid food industries, enabling the company to provide quality in-house expertise for customer training and consultations.

From one man’s singular vision and commitment to apply science to stop foodborne illness tragedies, QualiTru Sampling Systems has grown into a worldwide company trusted to provide accurate and representative samples to the dairy and liquid food industries, helping them meet their needs for product quality and safety, public health, and business goals.  

As we like to say at QualiTru:

Your Test Result Is Only as Accurate as Your Sample!

Ask Our Experts in Liquid Sampling Systems

On the heels of two dairy-related tragedies occurring in rapid succession in the 1980s, those four simple words inspired QualiTru’s founder to ask, “How can I help reduce the chances of future contaminations or bacterial outbreaks from ever claiming another life?”
