AVM ® – Aseptic Validation Medium

Linden Grain Medium for the determination of microbial load within the scope of filling system validation

Filling plants are validated following installation and then once per year thereafter or after maintenance measures. A simulation is performed using a standardised nutrient medium to obtain a precise overall impression of the filling process with regard to recontamination. A statistical projection of filling samples would provide insufficient results.

AVM® - Aseptic Validation Medium - is the registered brand name of the Linden Grain medium in the Döhler Microsafety Design® portfolio. The medium is used to determine microbiological contamination during the validation of aseptic filling lines for beverages in the strongly and weakly sour range, such as soft drinks, juices or dairy products.

AVM® has an ideal nutrient composition that allows flexible adjustment of the pH for specific product variations or as per plant specification

It is sold as AVM® Powder or as the plant-based AVM® veg Powder. It is also available as a liquid broth upon request, however, this product only has a shelf life of two days (only available within a 1-day delivery radius around Darmstadt, Germany).

AVM® is an important tool used for certifications in accordance with the ISO 22000 food safety standard, HACCP and standards such as IFS and BRC.
