Ask the Expert: How to Choose the Right Method for Microbial Testing in Infant Formula?
Interview: Accurate microbiology QC methods for infant formula testing
MC-Media Pad – Validation Summary
This article will focus on results obtained for MC-Media Pad RAC, MC-Media Pad Coliform, MC-Media Pad E. coli & Coliform & MC-Media Pad Yeast & Mold.
Food for thought: EN ISO 11133:2014
The new EN ISO 11133:2014 quality-assured culture media for food and water testing to enhance consumer safety. The ultimate aim of the new standard is to further improve the safety of the food and beverage products we consume.
Culture Method for Beer Quality Control
Traditional methods are based morphology, staining methods, enzyme reactions (metabolism) and diverse media.
Types of Media in Microbiology
The different types of culture media, that are used to grow microorganisms in the laboratory for quality control, are classified by several criteria, such as consistency, composition, or selectivity.
Bacillus: A Ubiquitous Bacteria Genus
We present an article concerning Bacillus: A Ubiquitous Bacteria Genus.
Viable but Nonculturable Bacteria
The expression “viable but nonculturable” (VNC) bacteria, describes cells that cannot normally be cultured; however, a better explanation of the status of these bacteria would be “not immediately culturable”.
Pseudomonas Media and Tests
An article concerning the detection, identification, differentiation, and cultivation of Pseudomonas species.
Antimicrobial Peptides
With bacterial resistance and emerging infectious diseases becoming potential threats to humans, ribosomally synthesized antimicrobial peptides have become a promising focus area in antibiotic research.
EN ISO 11133:2014 Quality-assured Culture Media for Food and Water Testing to Enhance Consumer Safety
EN ISO 11133:2014 - Mandatory standard for media preparation, production, storage and performance testing. In May 2014, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published the revised EN ISO 11133, which is now a full standard and as such, mandatory for
Differentiation of Escherichia coli from coliforms
There are many other methods of detection to indicate the presence of E. coli. Review common tests and biochemical reactions for this contaminant.
Cultivation of Shigella
Shigella spp. are predominantly connected to humans and are rarely isolated from other animals, with the exception of primates.
Probiotics in the Food Industry
Probiotics are defined as live bacteria with beneficial effects to the health of the host organism. Pimarily lactic acid bacteria (LAB) and bifidobacteria are used as probiotics, however certain yeasts and bacilli are also known to have positive effects
Probiotics and Human Health
Today, diverse studies report the benefits of probiotics, such as inhibitory effects on pathogens, aid in the management or prevention of chronic intestinal inflammatory diseases or atopic syndromes, and support to the immune system. Potential beneficial applications abound, researchers continue
Chronobacter spp. Classic and New Detection Methods
Chronobacter spp. Classic and New Detection Methods
Early Detection of Fungal Hyphae on Bread by Fluorescently Labelled Lectins
Atto-dye labeled lectins provide a strong fluorescent signal without requiring additional amplification; surface fungi can be detected long before visible mold develops.
Vegetable and Plant Peptones: Alternatives to Animal-derived Peptones in Microbiology
Plant-based vegetable peptones are strictly of non-animal origin, so they pose no risk of carrying animal and human diseases such as BSE into fermentations and produced materials.
EN ISO 11133 and Water for the Preparation and Performance Testing of Microbiological Culture Media
See how two water sources compare when preparing and performance testing microbiological culture media acc. to EN ISO 11133: centrally purified water vs. water from a Milli-Q® IX system were assessed. Tests included media specific for Listeria and Salmonella pathogens.
Detection and Differentiation of Staphylococcus Aureus on Baird Parker Agar
An article concerning Baird Parker Agar, which is used for the isolation and differentiation of coagulase-positive staphylococci in food and pharmaceuticals.
