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.
