Testing Disc for Beer Spoilage Bacteria

Cat.No    ACMA00032606
  • Description
  • Application
  • Features And Benefits

Correlated bacteria beer corruption can cause high economic losses and affect brand image. Our testing plate can help brewers reduce these risks.

We offer two spoilage monitoring methods: a sensitive method includes an enrichment step to ensure that the sample is free of destructive agents; a very fast method can detect a small amount of destructive agents in less than 3 hours

1. Allow simultaneous detection and identification of beer spoilage bacteria within a few days, and colony identification within 2 hours.
2. Designed for daily use. Implementing PCR (polymerase chain reaction) has never been easier.
3. The method is based on the detection of stable genes.
4. To ensure the accuracy of the results, each sample analysis includes an internal positive control.

Compatible With Filterable samples (e.g. filled product, water)
