  • Rapid Tests Total Aerobic Microbial & Yeast Mould Count

    Posted by mikethair on February 19, 2017 at 10:29 pm

    We currently send samples to a test lab for Total Aerobic Microbial & Yeast  Mould Count. Are there any industry accepted Rapid Tests for these type of microbial tests that are widely used?

    Thanks.

    Hi @johnb, thanks for this.   Do you know if these are in regular use in cosmetic manufacturing labs?

    I had in mind that a Rapid Test  could be used for each batch of product.

    I retired from mainstream work before these things were invented but, I can say that I’ve seen them in use in numerous companies that I’ve visited since them.

    I doubt these tests are as reliable as a full scale count but for general checking purposes they look to be approaching the ideal.
