BAX® System PCR Assays for Yeast & Mold

Yeast and mold cause various degrees of deterioration and decomposition of many food products. Although these bacteria do not cause many human illnesses, they are spore formers that can release toxins once ingested. Moreover, yeast and molds can negatively impact the shelf life and appeal of any product, thus causing economic losses. Compared to conventional methods that take up to 7 days, the BAX® System PCR assay for Yeast and Mold provides results in two days for enriched products, and same-day results when product is direct tested. The protocols associated with this assay are customizable for actionable thresholds, proving the true power and robustness of PCR technology.
