Water Testing for Food and
For microbiological testing of water to be used for the production of food and beverages, Merck offers a wide range of dehydrated culture media.
Microorganisms in water to be used for the production of foods and beverages are a potential health risk for customers. Organisms like coliform bacteria, Escherichia coli and other Enterobacteriaceae can lead to serious food poisoning if contaminated water is used for processing food or beverages. Therefore it is important to conduct regular tests to ensure that the water used is hygienic and free from potential pathogens.
Merck’s unique granulated, dehydrated culture media for water testing are convenient, safe and meet the highest industry performance standard as described in ISO 11133. Their granulated format significantly reduces inhalation of hazardous media components and thus allergic reactions. It also minimizes contamination of the work environment.
