Salmonella. Listeria. E. coli. Shigella. No one in the food industry is rolling out the welcome mat for these bacteria. These pathogens and others, which can cause a variety of dangerous illnesses, are a health hazard in the food industry.

Preventing or detecting contamination by testing any surface that comes into contact with our food is essential. Swabbing difficult-to-access areas can be challenging. In addition, swabs need to be easily transported from collection site to the laboratory.

That’s why we developed our fast and efficient SRK™ line.

  • Sampling uneven, irregular surfaces or equipment is easy with the SRK™ swab system.

  • Samples can be refrigerated in tubes up to 24 hours before laboratory analysis.
