Microbial Analysis

Microbial Analysis

Microbial or microbiological testing is quintessential to understand the composition of microbes, and potential pathogens and spoilage microorganisms. In short, the study of microscopic organisms in food or beverage products is titled a microbial analysis.

The testing also includes the sub-disciplines of microbiology like Virology, Mycology, Parasitology and Bacteriology. Microbes can grow even under extreme circumstances. Therefore, great precautions must be taken into consideration to avoid growth of microorganisms in the product right from manufacturing and packaging to end point delivery. These microbes/ microorganisms can grow even in extreme temperatures. It is crucial that such microbes should be identified in time and the production process should be altered in a way to keep products free from such microbes. Cultivator Phyto Lab identifies the complete microbial spectrum in the provided sample and helps companies steer clear of troubles.

Microbial pathogens such as prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and other bacteria can be harmful to a great extend for human bodies. Microorganism can also lead to several diseases like diphtheria, pneumonia, typhoid, amoebiasis, botulism, cholera, dysentery, and food poisoning. Some of the microorganisms are even immune to antibiotics. It turned into a clarion call for the recent changes in the statutory laws and regulations have made the clinical testing of products mandatory for microbial analysis.

Cultivator Phyto Lab proposes a variety of microbial analysis techniques viz.

  • Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA)
