Identification of fermentative yeasts

Detection of Saccharomyces, Zygosaccharomyces, Pichia, Dekkera and Candida

Product Number: 01350003

Prevention of product damage

Analysis of grown colonies or pure cultures using highly specific gene probes for following yeast genera: Saccharomyces, Zygosaccharomyces, Pichia, Dekkera and Candida . The detected yeast genera are reported specifically.

Results will be provided within the next working day after sample receipt.

Qualitative or quantitative detection?
Qualitative

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

Which requirements are important?
Pre-enriched samples:
Pre-enriched bouillons (10 ml) or agar plates with colonies.

 

Alternative options for analysis of spoilage yeasts:
Quantitative detection of fermentative yeasts
Rapid and specific detection of fermentative yeasts.
