About RapiScreen™ Beverage Kit:
Hygiena’s revolutionary RapiScreen Beverage Kit is a high-performance, ultra-rapid microbial screening solution specifically designed for low pH beverages, including fruit juices, teas, energy drinks, UHT pasteurized products, smoothie mixes and condiments. The system enables quality control results in less than 30 minutes following a preliminary incubation period, reducing product hold time from 4-10 days to 1-2 days. This swift performance is crucial for manufacturers, allowing quicker release of products to the market, improved inventory turnover, and enhanced cash flow.

The Innovate System, underpinning the RapiScreen Kit, detects microbial contamination far quicker than conventional culture methods, allowing the analysis of up to 96 samples simultaneously. The simplified three-step process, coupled with RapiScreen ATP bioluminescence technology, has become the industry’s gold standard for screening low pH beverages and high temperature liquid fill products, eliminating lengthy plate incubation periods and shortening production times.
