Rapid Brewery Hygiene Monitoring


Rapid Brewery Hygiene Monitoring

Leftover beer product or microbial cells on surfaces after sanitation procedures can lead to contamination. Various organisms in breweries, such as Lactobacillus, Acetobacter, Brettanomyces, Saccharomyces diastaticus, Megasphaera spp., Pectinatus spp. and Pediococcus, can cause off-flavors, aromas and haziness.  Because spoilage microorganisms can introduce a myriad of these contamination risks that may result in losses or recalls, it is critical that brewers test for them at every stage and area of production. Protect your brand.


Ultra sensitive rapid hygiene test system that detects contamination within 10 seconds

Independent laboratory testing confirms that the Kikkoman A3 technology provides detection of residues at levels much lower than other tests on the market. Using residue from many different samples, laboratory testing proved that Kikkoman A3 technology produced a test result (relative light units – RLU) an order of magnitude or higher than competitive products.

In many of the samples tested, Kikkoman A3 technology showed a strong presence of residue while the competitive products produced test results below typical action levels showing that Kikkoman A3 can reduce the risks from false negative results.

Simplify your Microbiological Testing with Easy Plate

It does not require medium preparation or autoclave sterilization and can be used immediately after taking it out of the bag. Work time can be shortened because there is no need for operations such as placing or layering or special jigs. Since it can be dropped while stacking, not only the work time but also the work space can be reduced. Easy operation that even beginners can use with high reliability.


 Easy Plate - Rapid Yeast and Mold


A prepared film medium that does not require medium preparation.

Colonies are clearly coloured in 48 hours. Shorter incubation time than agar media! Colonies develop a purple colour, making it easy to identify and count colonies.


Easier to use

 Simply close the cover film and the sample suspension spreads evenly across the plate surface - without the need to use a plate spreader.  The plate surface is also surrounded by a unique hydrophobic resin ring to control the sample suspension and prevent leaks.

Example colonies of 48 hours incubation​


Aureobasidium pullulans​


Zygosaccharomyces rouxii


Geotrichum candidum


Aspergillus flavus
