DIY HYGIENE TEST KIT
Rapid UVC General Hygiene Bacteria Test Kit
DIY Hygiene Check™
The Do-It-Yourself Hygiene Check™ shows an obvious color change from red to yellow. The time taken for this change is an indication of the level of contamination. This should be used in conjunction with known specification levels of your process or product. Rapid screening hygiene test is a same day test that will detect gross bacterial and fungal contamination of work surfaces, equipment, counters, furniture or other sampling sites.
The DIY Hygiene Check™ Principle
The surface is wiped with a cellulose swab and any bacteria collected are transferred via the swab into a tube containing a special medium with an indicator dye, which is then incubated. A single bacterium is sufficient to cause a color change. This means that DIY Hygiene Check™ is about 1000 times more sensitive than the conventional ATP method. This accuracy is particularly important in the food industry. With this simple method, it is possible to identify microorganisms such as Listeria monocytogenes, which must not be present in any concentration in food and beverages
