Indicator Organisms for Food & Beverage Industry


Does indicator organism testing test your patience?

Facilitate Your Process with EMD Millipore’s Unique Granulated Culture Media

Indicator organism testing is fundamental in food safety. Unfortunately, it starts with a cumbersome process: Preparing culture media in small or large quantities from powder – which is not only difficult to handle and hard to dissolve – but also exposes you to airborne toxins and health risks. Nevertheless, indicator organism testing is impossible without culture media. So what choice do you have? EMD Millipore’s unique granulated culture media.

Unlike traditional powdered media, our dehydrated and granulated culture media are specially formulated to minimize dust formation, component separation and clumping – even under warm or humid conditions. This ensures greater solubility and homogeneity, which makes indicator organism testing significantly easier and more efficient. Granulation minimizes airborne toxins and allergens, hence results in enhanced personnel safety and protects laboratories from contamination.

EMD Millipore’s unique granulated culture media meet the highest industry performance standards, as described by ISO 11133. Our comprehensive portfolio of granulated media for indicator organism testing includes products for the detection of: total viable organism, yeasts & molds, Coliforms & E. coli, Enterobacteriacae, Staphylococcus aureus, Bifidobateria, Lactobacilli, and Pseudomonas.
