Description


PIKA FastOrange B Agar is a culture medium developed to detect bacterial contamination in the brewing process and packaged products. The media rapidly grows all beer-spoiling bacteria, while suppressing the growth of brewer's yeast and most other yeasts. The media changes color from violet to yellow upon growth of acid-producing strains, allowing the spoilage potential of growth to be assessed.


Fast Orange B Agar is provided sterile in ready-to-use bottles. Simply heat the agar in a water bath or microwave, and pour your plates. No autoclaving is necessary.
