Assess Alicyclobacillus Contamination in 2 to 3 h with GeneDisc® Method
Pall has released a new GeneDisc technology application for the relative quantification of Alicyclobacillus. and the four main Alicyclobacillus spoiler strains in filterable samples within 2 to 3 hours.
Ingredient and beverage industries can achieve higher profitability with this new informative protocol enabling effective decision making with early in-process controls at critical points of production flow:
- Highly contaminated products can be diverted in real time for further processing to eliminate or reduce the risk to an acceptable level
- Efficacy of countermeasure for TAB contamination reduction can be evaluated
- Final product contamination can be quantified
Combined with already available protocols for detection of TAB Spoilage, the GeneDisc method is a complete and flexible tool for controlling beverage processes impacted by Alicyclobacillus contamination.
Quantification: Confirm relative Alicyclobacillus level in filterable samples in as fast as 2 to 3 hours
Detection: Detect the presence of over 200 Alicyclobacillus strains in filterable and unfilterable samples using this highly sensitive test
Identification: Individually and simultaneously identify the four specific Alicyclobacillus species most often associated with spoilage including A. acidoterrestris, A. acidophilus, A. cycloheptanicus, A. herbarius
