Indicon® Gel

Product Description

Rapid detection of microbial “hot-spots” is critical to sanitation verification and quality assurance.  Today’s food processing and food service facilities must take extra precautions to protect against unseen microbial threats.  Sterilex’s latest technology, Indicon Gel, is a quick and accurate way to make the Invisible…Visible.

Indicon Gel provides a cost-effective, rapid visual indication of the presence of biofilm on a surface which may contain harmful microorganisms such as Listeria, Escherichia coli (E. coli) or Salmonella.  When the product comes into contact with biofilm, Indicon Gel rapidly produces white micro-bubbles/foam within 2 minutes, providing a visual indicator of potential harborage niches.

Note: The lack of a positive reaction from Indicon Gel does not guarantee that the surface is free from microorganisms. Indicon Gel is not meant to take the place of routine microbial monitoring or organism-specific diagnostic tests.
