VIT® Candida intermedia

Test kit for specific detection of the yeast Candida intermedia

Item Number: 01210034

Detection of yeasts in microbiological quality control

Candida intermedia is a beverage-spoiling yeast. It can cause undesirable changes in odor and taste as well as cloud stability disturbances and biofilm formation in non-carbonated beverages and thus is especially dreaded by fruit juice producers.

The test kit VIT® Candida intermedia detects this potential fermentative yeast swiftly and specifically. This allows to unambiguously identify the cause of specific product defects and, with the help of the test kit, to investigate the origin of a contamination in a quick and easy way.
