Product Number: 01210014

Detection of Staphylococci in food samples

VIT® Staphylococcus unequivocally detects all Staphylococcus aureus strains as well as other Staphylococcus species. For instance, even Coagulase negative Staphylococcus aureus strains are detected safely and unequivocally. Only vital bacteria are detected. In comparison with conventional methods VIT® Staphylococcus allows time savings of one to three days.
