Unique Microbial ATP Testing of Goat and Sheep Milk provided by Promicol 15
Promicol was challenged to find a suitable test kit to analyze goat and sheep milk using the microbial ATP detection method. In comparison to cow milk, goat and sheep milk contains a lot of free ATP which is captured in micelles. The current way of measurement used for cow milk products does not allow removal of this free ATP. Thus, high RLU values will be given for sterile product which makes discrimination of positive and negative samples impossible.
Therefore, Promicol invented a completely new way of ATP bioluminescence measurement. A kinetic way of measurement is used in order to analyze goat and sheep milk samples. Together with specially developed reagents a clear discrimination between positive and negative samples is possible.
In order to analyze those products the Microbial ATP Detection Test Kit for Goat and Sheep Milk, a Promilite instrument as well as Promicols specific software suitable for goat and sheep milk testing are required. Using this unique setup goat and sheep milk can be analyzed using the Promicol microbial ATP detection method after a pre-incubation period of 2 days. In this way products can be released to the market at an earlier stage compared to traditional method saving a lot of storage and warehousing costs.
Promicol aims to develop a long term relationship with its customers, built on trust, innovation and expertise. It is our goal to provide a service that is in touch with the needs of your quality management and to your demands from rapidly changing markets, making ATP work for you, together with you.
