Flow VIT®: The Automated Analysis Method for Microbiological Quality Control

Munich, 05. September 2018 - As part of the BrauBeviale 2018, vermicon AG presents the powerful Flow VIT® Solution, a combination of flow cytometry and VIT® gene probes technology. This new detection system by vermicon AG, which was


developed in cooperation with Sysmex Corporation, aims to raise the microbiological quality control to a higher level and to enable a faster and more cost-efficient monitoring of production processes and end products.

The Flow VIT® Alicyclobacillus test kit is the first application for the fully automated VIT® analysis of microorganisms via flow cytometry. The test kit allows producers in the beverage industry to detect microbial causes of off-flavors quickly and reliably. Thus, the quality of beverage products is increased and economically damaging recall actions can be prevented. Samples are prepared with the Flow VIT® test kit. The actual evaluation is fully automated and takes only a few minutes thanks to the flow cytometer CyFlow Cube 6. Additional innovative applications for the beverage industry are currently being developed.

“We want to provide our customers with a fast and comprehensive view into their microbiological samples. This is the only way to guarantee the highest level of microbiological safety”, remarks Dr. Jiri Snaidr, founder and CEO of vermicon AG. “The Flow VIT® Solution is another milestone on our way to profoundly changing industrial microbiology.”

Another innovation by vermicon AG is the VIT® Bier Screening test kit. This test kit allows an unambiguous identification of individual beer-spoiling lactic acid bacteria in beer and mixed beer beverages. Up to 16 species of bacteriacan be specifically identified in a single sample. In contrast to other rapid detection methods, only living cells are detected with VIT® gene probe technology, i.e. dead cells do not cause false-positive results. Finished products as well as samples from all stages of the brewing process, including yeast propagation, can be examined.

BrauBeviale, the capital goods exhibition for the beverage industry, will be held from 13 to 15 November, 2018 in Nuremberg, Germany. vermicon AG will be presenting its innovative solutions for industrial microbiology in Hall 4, Booth 305.
