REAL TIME DETECTION KIT Zygosaccharomyces bailii - 100 rxn
|Each kit contains: Master Mix, Assay Mix, Positive and Negative Controls|
|Zygosaccharomyces bailii is a food spoilage yeast with high importance for wine, beverage and food industry, because of its ability to grow in the presence of weak acid preservatives such as benzoic and sorbic acids. Z. bailii is responsible for significant economic loss in the wine and food industry and its efficient detection is of most importance. This detection is mostly performed using classical microbiological methods that rely on the growth of Z. bailii on selective media. The growth of Z. bailii on this media typically occurs between 4 and 5 days. Therefore, methods to shorten the time needed for the detection of Z. bailii, in wine, beverages and food are desirable. Thus, real time PCR and specific fluorescent probes, is a powerful and reliable alternative for Z. bailii detection, providing results in much shorter times and allowing more efficient control procedures.|
This test allows the detection Z. bailii in wine and other beverages after DNA extraction. It can also be used with cultures and other samples in which Z. bailii detection is needed. Depending on the specific characteristics of the sample, procedures like homogenization and grinding may be necessary before DNA extraction. The kit is suitable for use in real time instruments with FAM and ROX detection channels.
