Microbiological analysis optimization of FOOD.

New microbiological analysis methods successfully used in leading laboratories



  • Global trend in the use of chromogenic medias.
  • Other exclusive MICROKIT medias that can help you.
  • Compact-Dry-Plates ®: The revolution of en masse culture without the need to melt medias!.
  • MICROKIT validated protocol for food analysis.
  • Intercomparative service: SEILALIMENTOS.

Global trend in the use of chromogenic medias:

  • MUGPLUS Cfs.Agar
  • TBX Agar
  • MCC Broth
  • CHROMOCYTOGENES Ottaviani & Agosti Agar
  • PCA-Chromogenic
  • PCA-MILK Chromogenic

Other MICROKIT medias of extraordinary interest for food use:

  • Buff. Peptone Neutralizing Purple versus classic Buffered peptone water.
  • Rose Bengal Caf. Agar versus Sabouraud/YGC Agar.
  • SS Broth versus Rappaport VS Broth.
  • MKT parahaemolyticus Broth versus Alkaline Saline Broth.
200 other medias in 500g or 100g bottles (less possibilities for humidity, lasts longer in optimum condition) for ALL the ISO standards, ALL parameters, and ALL food matrixes (please see the table for the most recommendable medias according to the matrixes and parameters in the MICROKIT catalogue). Formula manufacturing (confidential or otherwise) by order. If you can’t find what you need, we will manufacture it for you.

Compact-Dry-Plates ® Range

The revolution of en masse culture without the need to melt medias!

  • An en masse culture that does not require media preparation. That is why it has the advantages of a dehydrated media (long expiration term) and prepared medias (sterile, ready for immediate use, timer-saver).
  • Additionally, it does not have the downfall of the classic prepared plate, that after absorbing at least 0.1-0.3 ml, it is not useful for the majority of microbiological parameters.
  • It cold self-diffuses the sample ml, thus avoiding the need for handles, and eliminating the agar’s temperature cooling critical point to avoid burning microorganisms and increasing by 10 the plates detection limit.
  • Full range of chromogenic medias.
  • Saves space (storage, range, waste…)
  • Validated by Microval and certified by AOAC.
