Description

Description

  • Used for the non-selective development and enumeration of all aerobic bacteria on surfaces in accordance with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).
  • The kit includes the swabs and culture medium, packaged with a membrane device, providing a quantitative result.
  • All bacteria develop on TGE media and produce a range of different colored and sized colonies. It is not possible using TGE to presumptively identify any bacteria. Identification can only be undertaken using traditional microbiology techniques following initial colony development.

Features and Benefits:

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

Applications:

  • Qualitative and semi-quantitative hygiene control
  • Used for the non-selective development and enumeration of all aerobic bacteria on surfaces in accordance with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).

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.
