The EnSURE Touch Monitoring System collects, analyzes, and reports data from multiple quality tests such as ATP, microorganisms, and enzymes, providing necessary data for audit and risk management. It features a responsive 5-in. shatter-proof touchscreen that works while wearing gloves. The system is accompanied by the latest version of Hygiena’s SureTrend Data Analysis Software, SureTrend Cloud. The updated software is available in cloud-based or desktop formats and enables users to monitor, track, and trend testing results across one or multiple facilities, schedule automatic reports, and configure one or hundreds of monitoring systems from a single SureTrend account.

The Contura S600, which features an oversized test chamber, is designed to test products sold for bulk retail and food service applications as well as large format Modified Atmosphere Packaging and flexible packages. It helps manufacturers extend shelf life, prevent recalls and returns, and reduce waste. The S600 model relies on a proprietary differential pressure method to detect both gross and fine leaks and offers a quantifiable alternative to methodologies like water baths and gas-based testing. With the test chamber, food manufacturers can increase efficiencies by testing multiple products at the same time. The system is ideal for a variety of food applications including pet food, meat and poultry, baked goods, snack foods, confectionery/candy, cheese, grains and cereals, prepared food, and produce.

Listeria innocua Controls
Microbiologics launches Listeria innocua in its UV-BioTAG format, a product line of QC microorganisms expressing the Green Fluorescent Protein reporter from a stable chromosomal integration. Designed for QC testing in food microbiology laboratories, UV-BioTAG cultures visibly fluoresce under UV light, making them easily distinguishable from naturally occurring strains that may be isolated from food samples. UV-BioTAG is available in two test-ready formats. UV-BioTAG Vial kits contain six vials of one lyophilized microorganism pellet (six pellets per kit), which are rehydrated in a sterile fluid, such as saline, and then plated on growth medium. UV-BioTAG Swab kits contain six all-in-one devices including a lyophilized microorganism pellet, ampoule of rehydration fluid, and a swab, which allows for direct inoculation of growth medium.
