Acetic acid bacteria are aerobic beer spoilers which spoil beer by the production of acetic acid.
The PIKA 4e Acetic Acid Bacteria test kit screens for and quantifies all acetics, including Acetobacter, Gluconacetobacter, and Gluconobacter, as well as several rarer species. Includes all reagents needed to extract and amplify DNA using Real-Time PCR. 48 reactions/test kit.
