Helping to Ensure That Spoilage won’t Spoil Your Brand’s Reputation

Merck is the market leader in providing the strictly regulated pharmaceutical industry with dehydrated culture media for media fill trials. We are applying the expertise we have gained to manufacture such media specifically for the beverage industry, using only carefully selected raw materials.

For manufacturers of low-acid aseptic beverages, Merck’s Linden Grain Medium is the perfect choice to be sure that your filling line is not contaminated with spoilage bacteria, yeasts or molds.

With our Linden Grain Medium, which is typically prepared in large volumes of more than 5,000 liters for a single media fill trial, there is no need to source, buy, mix and quality control individual raw materials.

Granulated Linden Grain Medium Makes Life Easier, Is Safe and Ensures Results You Can Trust

  • Ready-mixed in 5 kg and cost-saving 25 kg sizes
  • Meets highest performance standards in production and QC as described in EN ISO 11133
  • Less dust formation: reduces cleaning efforts and limits the spread of media components which may be hazardous or lead to allergic reactions if inhaled
  • Excellent solubility and free-flowing properties
  • No component separation and clumping even under warm or humid conditions
  • Homogenous distribution of non-animal based ingredients

Developed in Cooperation with Coca-Cola

Merck’s granulated ready-mixed Linden Grain Medium, a high-quality alternative to powdered media, was successfully developed in cooperation with Coca-Cola HBC AG, Zug, Switzerland for aseptic process simulations in the beverages industry.
