VIT® Alicyclobacillus

Test kit for the rapid analysis of Alicyclobacillus

Product Number: 01210013

Detection of Alicyclobacilli

Contaminated samples can be identified by their aseptic taste. But using VIT® Alicyclobacillus can prevent a contamination of the product. It unequivocally detects all members of Alicyclobacillus as well as Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris in the sample.

In addition, spores of these bacteria will be identified reliably in all stages of fruit juice and fruit concentrate production. 

The analysis is easy to conduct – only few minutes hands-on time. The results are provided within 3 hours. Analysis is performed by using a fluorescence microscope. All essential expendable materials required for analysis are contained in the kit. Package size: 25 analysis.

Analysis can be performed with following samples:

  • Isolates (directly)
  • Liquid enrichment (directly)
  • Drinks (short pre-enrichment)
  • Fruit juice and -concentrates (short pre-enrichment)
