FastOrange B Ready-to-Use Swabs and Tubes
Monitor process cleanliness with FastOrange B Ready-to-Use Swabs and Tubes. Examine any surface for the presence of beer spoilers and hygiene indicator bacteria by simply swabbing a surface then incubating the swab in the accompanying tube filled with FastOrange B Ready-to-Use Boullion (Broth).
Since swabs and boullion tubes are delivered ready-made, no sterile preparation is necessary. Even the smallest production facility without a lab can use PIKA FastOrange B Ready-to-Use Swabs and Tubes to test tanks, hoses, keg couplers, and draft faucets on a routine basis to determine where contamination might originate.
Typical beer spoilers Lactobacillus and Pediococcus, as well as anaerobic bacteria Megasphaera and Pectinatus, are easily detected when turbidity forms along with a color change in the media. Other indicator bacteria, including E. coli and coliforms, are also detected by turbidity and sediment formation.
