• ice cream
• chocolate and cocoa products
• sugar products (candies, foam wafers, fruit gums, jelly products etc.)
In general, such products are investigated for the following microbial parameters
• total colony-forming units
• yeast and mold
• coliforms and E. coli
• Salmonella and Staphylococcus aureus
Especially for Salmonella, a rapid and reliable detection method is of high relevance. Sweets are mostly consumed by children who tend to have a weaker immune system than adults. Real-time PCR offers the fastest and, due to its superb specificity, safest method for the detecting pathogenic organisms. Our foodproof Salmonella Detection Kit allows the detection of all Salmonella serovars within 24 hours. We offer our foodproof test kits along our sample preparation kits in an easy-to-use manual way or as a fully automated system for industrial or service labs.
With real-time PCR technology established, further parameters can easily be included in the port-folio of analytical methods of microbiology laboratories, such as our foodproof E. coli and Shigella Detection Kit. Genetically modified organisms (GMO) can also be tested with this technology using the corresponding foodproof GMO Kits.
All of our pathogen detection and sample preparation kits have been developed and validated especially for difficult matrices. Chocolate, cocoa, nuts and other components of confectioneries are very demanding sample materials and need to be analyzed with a robust and reliable method. Our foodproof products have successfully proven their suitability in the confectionery industry for many years. The ease of use, robustness, and reliability of our kits have convinced every user up to now!
