Special Focus on Surface Monitoring in Production Environments

Whether in food or pharmaceutical production areas the presence of microorganisms on production surfaces is a vital component of maintaining product quality and safety. The recently updated ISO 18593:2018 standard for the food industry specifies a horizontal method for monitoring surfaces in food processing using contact plates, stick swabs, sponges and cloths to detect and count spoilage, indicator, and pathogenic microorganisms. On this page, you will find a selection of products specifically designed to make your environmental monitoring program quick, effective and compliant.
