Fast and specific detection of beverage-spoiling lactic acid bacteria

Qualitative detection of the beverage-spoiling genera Lactobacillus, Leuconostoc and Pediococcus

Product Number: 01230014

Lab analysis of lactic acid bacteria

Alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic beverages will be analyzed for presence of following genera of beverage-spoiling bacteria: Lactobacillus, Leuconostoc and Pediococcus.

Results will be provided within 3 working days after sample receipt, in case of readily enriched samples or grown colonies by the next working day.

Qualitative or quantitative detection?
Qualitative

Which method is applied?
The reliable VIT® gene probe technology.

Which requirements are important?
Product and raw material samples:

  • beer, wine, juices & soft drinks, minimum 100 ml
  • juice concentrates, minimum 25 ml
  • water samples (e.g. soda, rinsing water etc.), minimum 150 ml

Pre-enriched samples:

  • Pre-enriched bouillons (10 ml) or agar plates with colonies: This allows an acceleration in time-to-result (results are provided within 1 working day after sample receipt).

 

Ideal for an analysis of all relevant beverage spoilers: Screening "Beverage-spoiling microorganisms", especially for beer samples, we recommend the VIT® beer screening.

For an on-site analysis of your samples use our test kit VIT® Lactic Acid Bacteria.
