Microbial Monitoring of Flat and Curved Surfaces in the Food & Beverage Industry

MilliporeSigma’s HYCON® Contact Slides for microbial monitoring of flat and curved surfaces are designed as standardized agar media in a flexible foil. Their unique design makes them universal tools for easy microbial monitoring of flat and curved surfaces. The choice of formulations includes total count media as well as selective media for yeasts and molds, and for coliform organisms. Each contact slide is welded shrink-wrapped into a resealable sleeve to enable individual strips to be safely sterilized a number of times by peroxide gassing.
