Are You Sure Your Product is Free of Salmonella?
Don't take any chances - use reliable Salmonella test kits from Merck
Salmonella are among the most common causes of food poisoning - contaminating above all poultry meat, eggs, milk and milk products. Recent cases, however, show that other food can be affected as well: In 2008, Salmonella typhimurium findings in peanut butter caused considerable anxiety in the U.S. food market. More than 80 companies had to recall hundreds of products due to the widespread use of peanut butter which also serves as additive for other food products. This recent salmonella outbreak in the U.S. demonstrates again the immense importance of Salmonella diagnostics.
|Reliable testing according to international standards |
Extensive regulations govern the testing for Salmonella. EU food safety criteria regulate for which foods and food groups the absence of Salmonella is to be confirmed, and standards describe in detail how this is to be done. As a competent partner for food analytics and hygiene, Merck provides a comprehensive, high-quality product portfolio for reliable food testing according to national and international standards (ISO 6579:2002, US FDA BAM, DIN etc.).

Their unique granulated form rules out the unwanted separation of specific components in the media and eliminates dust generation as well as the risk of inhaling hazardous substances. Moreover, these products exhibit excellent free-flowing properties, wettability and solubility making them much easier to use than traditional media.
