Product description

The ready-to-use Wort-Agar is suitable for detecting and determining the total bacterial count of yeast and moulds e.g. Saccharomyces pastorianus, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Aspergillus brasiliensis, Penicillum roquefortii.

Wort-Agar is also used for isolation, cultivation and preservation of yeast and mould cultures.

The detection of yeast and moulds is of particular significance in the beverage industry, as these microorganisms may cause unwanted changes in smell, taste, appearance and consistency of beverages. Undesired effects include the buckling of bottles due to excessive gas formation of yeast or the formation of mycotoxins induced by moulds.

Nutrient composition of the wort promoting growth of yeasts and moulds. The low pH value supports their growth and simultaneously inhibits the accompanying bacterial flora.

Wort-Agar can be use as a nutrient base for membrane filtration, air sampling, for the pour plate method (yeast cultivation), for microbial spreading or for analysis of swab samples.
