117,00 zzgl. MwSt. / plus sales tax

FastOrange® B Ready-to-Use Tubes for hygiene monitoring are delivered for direct use in a set. The tests consist of sterile swabs which are used for sampling and tubes which are prefilled with 5 mL of nutrient broth. After sampling, the swabs are incubated direct in these tubes.

The analysis can easily be done without any additional lab equipment and therefore is recommended for all brewery sizes, including small craft breweries and brewpubs.

Swab the sampling point with the sterile swab, then place the swab into the tube with broth for incubation. The cap which is holding the swab is used for re-capping the tube with broth.

When doing the analysis on a routine schedule always at the same sampling points, you get a forecast about the hygiene status: With FastOrange® B Ready-to-Use Tubes, live microorganisms are detected already in the production area before they can enter into the production process or spoil the final product.

Content: 48 x 5 mL in plastic tubes plus 48 sterile swabs
