Rapid, reliable results are the challenge for food testing laboratories

In a world where faster results are required to ensure food safety and avoid costly (and brand damaging) recalls, every food microbiology lab needs to carefully consider what techniques they use.

Merck’s range of rapid test kits for food microbiology provides the ideal solution whatever your needs.

In many cases saving days over traditional methods.

  • Merck introduced the Rapidcult range of rapid enrichment broths to cut enrichment times from 24h to around 8h allowing same day detection when used in conjunction a lateral flow test or PCR.

  • Singlepath and Duopath lateral flow immunoassays (GLISA)  provide a simple, instrument free, way of rapidly identifying pathogens from foodstuffs. Designed to fit with accepted international standards they can be used as an addition to your conventional culture methods.

For more information please see the attached brochure or ask your local Life Science / Microbiology Specialist
