Description

  • Neutralizing buffer inactivates the bactericidal and bacteriostatic effects of chlorine and quaternary ammonium detergents. However, neutralizing buffer exhibits no toxic effects on microorganisms. This permits the transfer of swabbed organisms to the laboratory without loss in viability.

Features and Benefits:

  • Individually wrapped
  • Qualitative and semi-quantitative hygiene control
  • Sterile packed and ready-for-use
  • Easy to handle
  • Rapid results
  • Long shelf-life

Applications:

  • Neutralizing buffer swabs are used in the monitoring of surfaces for total bacterial count.
  • Used for the collection of surface contamination from flat or convoluted surfaces prior to transport to a laboratory for culture and enumeration.

The SwabCheck principle

  • The surface is wiped with a cellulose swab and any bacteria collected are transferred via the swab into a tube containing a special medium with an indicator dye, which is then incubated.
  • A single bacterium is sufficient to cause a color change.
  • The SwabCheck is about 1000 times more sensitive than the conventional ATP method. This accuracy is particularly important in the food industry. With this simple method, it is possible to identify microorganisms such as Listeria monocytogenes, which must not be present in any concentration in food and beverages.
