Microbial Air Monitoring

Request Information

We provide ready-to-use culture media in a wide variety of formulations and formats for microbial monitoring of air and compressed gas lines in food and beverage production plants. Active and passive air monitoring is an important part of the HACCP principles to prevent food contaminations.

Environmental monitoring using the ready-to-use and standardized air monitoring media from Merck ensures reliable microbial surveillance by enabling verification of how effective cleaning and disinfecting procedures have been and assessment of the potential for contaminations at critical points.

Ready-to-use contact plates, settle plates, contact slides, media cassettes, and agar strips are available from Merck for general microbiological controls and for the enumeration of typical food contaminants such as coliforms, yeasts and molds. Like all our culture media our high-quality air monitoring media are made from specifically selected raw materials, blended in aseptic environments in compliance with ISO 9001 and are controlled for reproducible performance between batches.
