Yeast and Mold Test Kits

The growth of mold in the industrial environment is often responsible for extensive losses in productivity. When populations of mold and yeast become elevated in stored hydrocarbon fuels, metalworking fluid, and process waters, serious economic consequences can result. Problems related to high levels of mold include slime formation, offensive odors and plugging of fluid delivery lines. Effective control of these organisms through biocide use is only possible when routine monitoring of fungal levels is performed. Sani-Check YM makes routine determinations of fungal populations quick and easy.

The growth of fungi (yeast and mold) in the industrial environment is often responsible for extensive losses in productivity. Problems related to high levels of mold include slime formation, offensive odors and plugging of fluid delivery lines.

Sani-Check YM Test Kit for yeast and mold makes routine determinations of fungal populations quick and easy.

Sani-Check YM test kits contain flexible plastic strips to which nutrient-containing filter paper is attached. Each test kit is complete and ready to use. No special equipment or training is necessary. In addition to testing liquids, the Sani-Check YM test kit is suitable for checking the sanitary quality of hard surfaces, particularly in the food processing industry. The flexibility of the strip makes it ideal for sampling hard to reach areas.

Yeasts and molds are closely related organisms and generally require the same conditions for growth. The Sani-Check YM Test Kit is able to detect a broad range of these microbes which are implicated in contamination of the industrial environment. Examples of yeast are included in the genera of Candida, Trichosporon and Saccharomyces. Examples of molds are included in the genera Fusarium, Cephalosporium, Cladosporium, Aspergillus,and Penicillium.

Most yeasts and molds possess the ability to form black spots on the Sani-Check YM test strip. The number of spots can be used to derive a semi-quantitative measurement of yeast and/or mold growth. Following incubation, the strip is compared to an interpretation chart on the label in order to obtain an estimated fungal count.
