HygieneChek Lactic Acid Bacteria/Yeasts & Moulds

Romer Labs offers HygieneChek™ dip slides which are an easy-to-use, reliable and economic microbiological testing system. It is a double-sided agar paddle which is used to detect and identify various microorganisms commonly found in food preparation areas, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

HygieneChek Lactic Acid Bacteria/Yeasts & Moulds is a APT and Oxytetracyclin-Glucose-Yeast agar based dip slide which can be used within the food and farming industry for the detection and enumeration of lactic acid bacteria, as well as the detection of yeasts and moulds. The only requirement for the cultivation of bacteria, yeast and mould on the HygieneChek dip slide is an incubator.

Lactic acid bacteria are a group of aerotolerant, gram positive bacteria which ferment glucose into lactic acid. This is beneficial within the production of foods which are preserved through fermentation such as pickles and sour cream.

Yeasts and moulds, such as Aspergillus niger and Brettanomyces bruxellensis can cause food spoilage and ruin crops, meaning a loss of production. The Oxytetracycline-Glucose-Yeast agar is bacteriostatic, and will produce better yeasts and moulds than agars that use low pH to control bacterial growth.
