GENE-UP BREW beer testing system

Monday, 01 June, 2020 | Supplied by: Australasian Medical & Scientific Ltd


The GENE-UP BREW system is designed to provide a fast, simple and accurate method for the detection of spoilage organisms in beer during both production and post packaging. It uses a powerful multiplex, real-time PCR assay system with a simplified workflow that provides good actionable results.

The system comprises a GENE-UP Thermal Cycler coupled with either of the two GENE-UP Brew Kits. The brewPRO Bacteria Screen assay provides risk-based detection and characterisation of lactic acid bacteria (including hop-resistant varieties), as well as Megasphaera and Pectinatus species. While the brewPRO Wild Yeast Screen assay provides good detection of STA1 positive yeast, and Brettanomyces species.

Hands-on time is kept at a minimum thanks to the user-friendly method coupled with the ready-to-use reagents supplied in each kit. The system offers complete flexibility and scalability, anywhere from one through to 96 samples to be tested at one time.

Results are available in as little as 3 h, enabling quality personnel to speed up the decision-making process and increasing productivity.
