During production of beer, microbial contamination can reduce the quality of the beer, including cloudiness or changes in the pH or flavor. Using the food
proof Beer Screening Kit, the most important beer spoilage bacteria in the production process are quickly and easily detected and identified.
proof Beer Screening Kit allows detection of the 30 most important beer-spoiling bacteria in a single reaction. Specifically, it detects the genera Lactobacillus, Pediococcus, Megasphaera and Pectinatus. The most important representatives of these genera, such as Lactobacillus brevis, Lactobacillus lindneri, Pediococcus damnosus or Megasphaera cerevisiae can also be identified by melting curve analysis in the same test. The updated version of the food
proof Beer Screening Kit additionally detects Lactobacillus acetolerans.
