Microbiological media specifically designed for Media Fill Trials are available, ingredients are from non-animal origin, irradiated making them suitable for introduction into compounding areas.
A review of the key molecular based techniques for identification and strain typing of microbial isolates with information on instrument suppliers and outsourced contract service laboratories.
Food microbiology laboratories have changed considerably during the last 30 years. In the early 1980s the focus was on quality control testing, much of which was done in-house by manufacturers. But as the industry began to adopt the HACCP approach to food safety management, quality control was replaced by quality assurance.

Part of the QC procedure requires that standard or type culture organisms are used to represent 'real samples' but in a controlled manner. These should be traceable back to a known type culture with normally less than five subcultures or passes (repeated subculture of organisms can result in possible genetics changes or contamination).
