It is more critical than ever for food processing and food service facilities to take extra precautions to protect against unseen microbial threats. Rapid detection of microbial “hot spots” is essential to sanitation verification and quality assurance. A rapid biological hygiene indicator, Sterilex’s Indicon Gel is a quick and accurate way to make the invisible… visible.
Indicon Gel provides a simple, cost-effective, rapid visual indication of the presence of biofilm on a surface. Biofilm may contain harmful pathogens such as Listeria, Escherichia coli (E.coli) or Salmonellen, making it imperative to identify, remove and control. When Indicon Gel comes in contact with biofilm, it rapidly produces white micro-bubbles/foam within 2 minutes, providing a visual indicator of potential harborage niches.
