Test kit for faster UHT and ESL beverage tasting

Global demand for commercially sterile beverages is growing more than 9 per cent annually, according to a market research report by Reportlinker. Taking this into consideration, 3M have announced the launch of their Microbial Luminescence Systems UHT Beverage Screen Kit.

This new rapid test expands the application of the Microbial Luminescence System (MLS) from UHT dairy products to a wide variety of UHT and ESL beverages such as fruit juices, caffeinated drinks, coconut waters, smoothies, dairy, dairy substitutes, and dairy/juice mixtures. The system provides a rapid method for quality release testing, reducing the time-to-result by two to three days or more, compared to traditional methods like agar plates and pH measurement.

Using bioluminescence technology, the Microbial Luminescence System detects ATP (adenosine triphosphate), an energy molecule universally present in all living organisms, no matter how small. This technology allows the 3M MLS to have faster time-to-result than traditional pH or agar tests, and more reliably detect a broad range of microorganisms than traditional methods.

Following a 2-3 day sample pre-incubation time, the 3M MLS technology provides a rapid result in less than 30 minutes, eliminating the need for further plating and incubating of agar dishes. This expedited time-to-result enables beverage producers to release product quicker, reduce inventory and storage space as well as increase their flexibility and lab productivity.

“UHT and ESL beverages and their processing techniques are becoming more sophisticated and diverse. Yet the historical test methods continue to lag behind and are time-consuming and limiting,” said Eric Amann, 3M Food Safety global marketing manager. “This new and improved 3M technology provides a quicker and more reliable way to detect microorganisms in a wide variety of beverages.”

Priorclave benchtop autoclaves

The complete range of Priorclave benchtop laboratory autoclaves are now available with short stand-off legs to provide easy access beneath the steam steriliser for much easier cleaning and disinfection of laboratory work surfaces.

It makes the benchtop autoclave range an ideal choice for organisations either planning or operating a Cat3 laboratory and limited on space.

The new versatile front loading design is available from the manufacturer Priorclave with sterilising chambers up to 60 litres capacity (350mm diameter), offers flexibility for both single or multi programs and a choice of standard or highly efficient vacuum operation.

Benchtop autoclaves are the smallest in the Priorclave range and should appeal to laboratories with low volume requirements, limited space whilst allowing them to enjoy a level of settings and operating flexibility usually reserved for larger autoclaves.  The many design benefits of this feature-packed range is available at an affordable price that will be appreciated by start-up labs on limited budget as well as the more established operations.

The smallest model, the C40 autoclaves weighs in at just 70kg and as with all models, it is extremely easy to install powered from a standard single phase supply.

Introduction of the bench-top autoclave range with stand-off legs brings significant advantages to designated CAT 3 application areas providing much easier access beneath the steriliser for cleaning to prevent spread of virus and eliminate potential cross contamination.  Another added benefit of investing in a Priorclave manufactured autoclave is the anti-microbial surface protection that prevents cross contamination.

All Stand-Off Compact models have access to an extended range of options and accessories that enable Priorclave to deliver a laboratory autoclave matched to specific requirements. This creates a brand that can turn its steam sterilisation capability to many business sectors including food, drink, dairy, pharmaceutical, veterinary, agricultural, education, healthcare, research establishments as well as industrial laboratories.
