Rapid, Simple, Cost Efficient System to Assess Microbial Presence on Surfaces and Equipment
Swabbing is one of the most widely used methods for microbiological examination of surfaces. COPAN's line of SRK® (Swab Rinse Kits) offers comprehensive sampling systems for the food industry. The kits developed for Food industries are designed for bacteriological sampling of food (meat, cheese, etc.) and production lines surfaces. Cleaning validations ensure that a cleaning process removes residues of the products manufactured; it is necessary before the implementations of new equipments or cleaning programmes and it is also required after aleration in the processes. To support this COPAN offers a wide range of innovative collection and transport systems for microbiological monitoring of food and production line surfaces that can be used for sampling procedures as described in ISO 18593:2004, ISO 17604:2003, and EU directive 2001/471/EC.
