Unique DMD® Hop Resistance Screen Kits for Beer Spoilage Detection


Döhler’s DMD® Hop Resistance Screen Kit offers a unique tool for microbiological quality control in breweries. The kit provides convincing evidence as to whether bacteria in an enriched beer sample or directly from an individual colony on solid media can spoil beer or not.

Hop-resistance is caused by horA and/or horC genes, both of which can be detected with Döhler’s DMD® Hop Resistance Screen Kit. Any one of these genes alone mediates the potential to spoil beer. All known beer spoiling bacteria carry one or both gene encoding for this resistance.

DMD® Hop Resistance Screen Kit combines the high-level sensitivity of PCR with visual analysis using lateral flow test strips. The clear positive or negative result is easy to read from coloured bands on a test strip. No expert knowledge or expensive equipment is required!

The DMD® Hop Resistance Screen Kit is part of a comprehensive product portfolio of DMD® Screen and Ident Kits for detecting beer spoilage. Döhler will expand this offering in future to include other microorganisms.

The DMD® Hop Resistance Screen Kit provides

  • Innovative technology – no expert knowledge or expensive equipment needed
  • Ease of use – all required reagents and illustrated manual included in the kit
  • Outstanding reliability – visual analysis and integrated amplification control
  • Comprehensive portfolio – new microorganisms added on a regular basis
