No Rinse Disinfecting Wipes
Dreumex Food Contact Surface Disinfecting Wipes help destroy norovirus, E. coli O157:H7, and Shigella dysenteriae, along with other foodborne pathogens and viruses (10 pathogens, three viruses total).The no rinse formula allows surfaces to be wiped and left to air dry, unlike other surface disinfectants that require a potable rinse before use. No pre-cleaning and rinsing is necessary prior to use as required with food contact surface sanitizing wipes. Food establishments, convenience stores, schools, grocery stores, and other facilities can easily implement wipes into workers’ daily routines to provide a safer environment.

Quality Testing in Craft Brewing
The Thermo Scientific BeerCraft software package for the GENESYS 50 and GENESYS 150 UV-Vis Spectrophotometers is designed to streamline quality assurance testing and to achieve batch-to-batch consistency. Together, Thermo Scientific BeerCraft software and GENESYS UV-Vis Spectrophotometers reduce the dependency on sensory testing and can provide the American Society of Brewing chemist-quality testing methods for more than 20 beer attributes, including color, bitterness, protein, sugar, carbohydrate, polyphenol levels, and more. BeerCraft software is configurable for use with reagents and chemistries from many vendors. Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., 866-356-0354, www.thermofisher.com.
The Supra S6 new-generation truck refrigeration unit is designed for small- to medium-size trucks. APX control technology incorporated into the Supra platform provides intelligent performance optimization, automatic trip data recording, and enhanced system diagnostics. Drivers can conveniently tap into the APX system’s functionality through the dash-mounted Cab Command control interface with a backlit LCD display that provides at-a-glance operating information. The Supra S6 unit integrates with Carrier Transicold’s eSolutions telematics offering, enabling remote monitoring and control of the refrigeration system as well as GPS location data and geofencing. A streamlined internal architecture for key components, including the diesel engine and compressor, results in a more logical configuration that uses less refrigerant and fewer parts.

PSSI’s real-time performance metrics platform enables its sanitation teams to proactively track and respond to critical data that can impact the overall effectiveness of a sanitization process. Data that was previously recorded with a pen and paper on a clipboard as part of a nightly sanitation log post-cleaning is now logged digitally into an application on a tablet or mobile device in real time during the sanitation process. Data is monitored closely by PSSI site managers and can easily be shared or accessed by other key stakeholders to perform analytics and make real-time adjustments to the sanitation process. The system can also send alerts and notifications regarding changes or updates that need to be made. The PSSI team focuses on documenting several key factors, including time, water temperature, titration (concentration of cleaning agents), and mechanical force (i.e., water pressure).

The all-in-one spray replaces the use of different cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting products. It is specially formulated to clean multiple hard non-porous surfaces, sanitize food contact surfaces, and disinfect commonly touched surfaces. The spray is a non-bleach formula that is effective against norovirus, making it ideal for use in food service environments—no rinsing required. It is effective against most common foodborne pathogens, including Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Shigella boydii. With no mixing or measuring necessary, the company says the spray allows users to complete cleaning procedures in an efficient manner, saving time while increasing effectiveness in preventing cross-contamination.
