Bacteria Testing

Microgen Biochemical Identification Kits

A range of simple, reliable bacterial identification systems for clinical, food, environmental and pharmaceutical laboratories.

Microgen Latex Agglutination Kits

Simple one-step identification and confirmation of a range of pathogenic bacteria.

 

Microgen Path-Chek Hygiene Tests

Rapid tests for the detection of a range of bacteria from work surfaces and the processing environment.

The range of Path-Chek Hygiene Systems consist of tests for 3 organism types; Listeria, Coliforms and Salmonella.

All three systems utilise an identical test principle. Bacteria are recovered from the surface of food manufacturing or processing equipment using a pre-moistened swab, which is capable of neutralising commonly employed detergents and sanitisers. The sample swab is then transferred into an organism specific media (swabs have a conveniently located break point so that they can easily be broken off into the growth media). Following incubation, if the specific target bacteria are present on the sample swabs, bacterial growth will cause the colour of the media to change.

Bacterial Typing Antisera

A high quality range of typing sera for the accurate and efficient identification and typing of Salmonella, E.Coli and Vibrio Cholerae. The Microgen typing sera are produced under ISO conditions and comply, where necessary, with the requirements of World Health Organisation testing programmes.
