Rapid and specific quantitative detection of Alicyclobacillus (TAB)

Specific detection of Alicyclobacillus and Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris (quantitative)

Product Number: 01220002

Quantitative lab analysis of Alicyclobacillus

With the specific VIT® gene probes all bacteria of the genus Alicyclobacillus and especially Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris are detected unequivocally. Both parameters will be reported quantitatively as cell count per ml or per g, depending on the required specifications. Even the spores of the bacteria can reliably be identified. The detection is carried out in fruit juices, fruit concentrates, soft drinks and other beverages.

Results will be provided within 3–4 days after sample receipt.

Qualitative oder quantitative detection?
