While high alcohol/hops in craft beer can deter spoilage organisms, other carefully crafted beverages, with sometimes unconventional ingredients can be susceptible to a broad scope of microbes that produce damaging lactic acids. A major challenge for detecting beverage spoilers with traditional microbial testing is the lack of immediate, accurate and actionable results throughout the production process. These limitations make it difficult to address spoilage organisms in real time and can result in facility contamination, production inefficiencies and holds, or place finished product at risk.

brewLAP, powered by Veriflow, is a molecular platform with accuracy and ease of use for rapid detection of microbes that can produce lactic acid and impact quality. The Veriflow platform utilises DNA Signature Capturing Technology to detect and quantify Pediococcus and Lactobacillus species, with results in less than 3 h of sample collection.

The platform can be deployed on-site at any size brewery, with minimal equipment and training required.

brewLAP is available in Australia from AMSL Scientific.
