Oeno Yeast Reagent
Oeno Yeast Reagent kit for detecting and counting metabolically active yeast cells, both of which are relevant parameters in samples from growing yeast cultures.
BrettCount Test kit for the specific detection of living Brettanomyces bruxellensis cells in wine and pre-mature wine sample. The specifically programmed VIT® (VIT® = vermicon identification technology) gene probes bind to target sequences within the yeast in the wine sample material, delivering maximum specificity and speed for the detection.
Test kit for the specific detection of living Alicyclobacillus spp. as well as Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris cells in fruit juices, fruit concentrates and similar samples after short pre-enrichment. The specifically programmed VIT® (VIT® = vermicon identification technology) gene probes bind to target sequences within living bacteria in the fruit sample material, delivering maximum specificity and speed forthe detection.
Water – CyStain BacCount Viable
Reagent kit to stain dead bacteria in water samples with a red fluorescence. Important in drinking water treatment to monitor successful inactivation of harmful bacteria.
Water – CyStain BacCount Total
Reagent kit to stain all bacteria in water samples with a green fluorescence. Important in water treatment process controls as well as microbial ecology.
Juice – CyStain VitalCount
Reagent kit to stain vital bacteria and yeast in fruit juice. Important for in process control and final product control.
Reagent kit for yeast cell counting and viability testing (differentiation between living and dead cells), to determine the growth phase of yeast cultures in product manufacturing.
Reagent kit for measuring trehalose in yeast after a cell fixation step. Trehalose assists in stabilising the yeast cell membrane during nutrient depletion and starvation, and other stresses such as heat shock or ethanol exposure. It thus serves as a major stress tolerance indicator.
Reagent kit for staining of yeast nuclear DNA after cell fixation by ethanol. This allows determination of total DNA and cell cycle analysis, which varies during the fermentation process.
Reagent kit for measuring neutral lipids in yeast. Neutral lipids serve as a storage substance and confer stress tolerance to yeast by stabilising the membrane and protect cells against bacterial contaminants.
Reagent kit for staging yeast growth cycle through glycogen measurement of glycogen. Glycogen content varies during the fermentation process: it is accumulated in yeast during the early exponential phase and utilised during nutrient depletion.
