Detecting Viruses

Major Pathogens in Aquaculture

Several inves­tigative techniques have been developed to detect viruses causing severe fish and shrimp diseases. The methods used are LAMP and RPA combined with our Lateral Flow Dipstick (LFD) for DNA Detection: HybriDetect. The addressed viruses cause diseases with a high mortality rate and therefore have a huge economic impact in fish farming indus­tries (1 – 6).

Hygiene monitoring in breweries

Results in just 2 hours – Immediate corrective actions possible!

The quality of beer is controlled in breweries at each individual level of the production process. The presence of beer spoilage microor­ganisms is associated with an elevated risk to beer quality. Microbial conta­m­i­na­tions create a negative impact on the taste, the texture and the smell of the final product. Conta­m­i­nation can occur over the entire production process, although the area of the filling machine is the main spot for conta­m­i­nation. For this reason, filling machines are cleaned inten­sively on a regular basis and the success of the cleaning process is controlled via close hygiene monitoring.
