FastOrange Wild Yeast Ready-to-Use Swabs and Tubes
FastOrange Wild Yeast Hygiene Swabs come as a ready-made set of sterile swabs and tubes prefilled with FastOrange Wild Yeast Hygiene medium.
Detect wild yeasts on any surface with an easy swabbing procedure. Just swab the suspect area with one of the sterile swabs, place the swab into the tube containing the PIKA FastOrange Wild Yeast Hygiene medium, mix, and incubate at ambient temperature (25 °C / 78 °F) and monitor growth for up to 5 days.
For specific detection of S. cerevisiae var. diastaticus, incubate at 35 °C / 95 °F.
Monitor the tubes for build-up of haze or sediment, which may appear together with a color change of the media from violet towards yellow.
The principle of the differentiation is described in EBC method 220.127.116.11 Saccharomyces Wild Yeasts, Cu-differentiation.
