PIKA Weihenstephan Detection Kits

Microbiology made easy. With our uncomplicated “go / no-go” tests you monitor your entire production process for beer and wine pests. With just a few pipetting steps you get a sure and specific result – and this is not only objective but even quantitative!

All PIKA detection kits contain sample preparation buffers as well as PCR tubes in which the specific primers and probes are already aliquoted and dried. Confusion or forgetting of individual components is thus eliminated, and you do not have to pipette tiny volumes. In order to work with a wide variety of thermal cyclers, we offer different product lines containing different PCR tube types.

PIKA detection kits are robust and temperature stable. The shipment is at ambient temperature and environmentally friendly – our products are packed in card boxes, not in polystyrene. Freeze and thaw cycles with multiple use are not necessary – simply store the kits in your refrigerator. And best of all, always use the exact number of reactions you need in a single measurement; you do not have to waste reagents or adjust the number of analyzes to fit the test.

4everyone Detection Kits

Microbiological examination with 4everyone Detection Kits is the user-friendly real-time PCR at an affordable price. Detect e.g. all true beer-damaging lactic acid bacteria including Lactobacillus acetotolerans specific in just one test, or check for the over-fermenting yeasts Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus and Brettanomyces. When using 4everyone Detection Kits with the Chai Bio™ Open qPCR Thermocycler, you do not have to interpret lines or curves: once the analysis is complete, the quantitative results are automatically displayed in a table on the computer screen.
