10th Microval Certificate Granted

MicroVal, a European certification organisation for the validation and approval of alternative methods for the microbiological analysis of food and beverages, has recently granted two new certificates which brings the total number now issued to 10. The two new methods certified were:

CampyFood agar method for Campylobacter spp. enumeration from bioMerieux .
CampyFood is a ready-to-use culture medium, CampyFood Broth (CFB) for the detection and enumeration of Campylobacter spp. Two broths can be used for the primary sample dilutions: the CampyFood broth and peptone water.

The validation has been carried out by the MicroVal Expert laboratory ADRIA Developpement, France. The MicroVal Certification Body is Lloyd's Register QA (NL) and the method reviewers were ir. Henk Stegeman (NL) and Prof. Basil Jarvis (UK).

SimPlate Total Plate Count Color Indicator from BioControl Systems, Inc
The SimPlate Total Plate Count Color Indicator (TPC-CI) method is used for the detection and quantification of total aerobic micro-organism populations. It is based on binary detection technology (BDT) which equates the presence of total aerobic micro-organisms to the presence of a colour change in the medium.

The SimPlate TPC was already granted the AOAC Official Method. Therefore MicroVal decided for this testkit to become MicroVal approved by only performing the MC study method according to the MV Rules and Certification Scheme, version 5. The results of the AOAC interlab study (reference method ISO 4833) are considered as comparable to the interlaboratory study that has to be performed by ISO 16140.

The validation has been carried out by the MicroVal Expert laboratory ADRIA Developpement, France. The MicroVal Certification Body is Lloyd's Register QA (NL) and the method reviewers were ir. Henk Stegeman (NL) and Prof. Basil Jarvis (UK).
