    Another approach we now use as opposed to sending each batch out for testing is we use MIKROCOUNT DUO. We validate results with tests done by an external registered microbiol lab for every third batch, and all is good.

  • I’ve used something similar and did not obtain any microbial results.  The difficult part I don’t know if I should interpret that as adequate preservation or inadequate testing!  
  • @natural76 if you don't validate the microbial results somehow, you will never know.
