Yeast Detection


Culture Medium: Yeast & Mould Broth (All Yeast Detection)

Culture Medium: Modified Yeast & Mould Broth (Wild Yeast Detection)

Yeasts are a group of micro-organisms which include both favourable and unfavourable species.

Certain species of yeast are essential in food production processes, whilst others can be detrimental (such as wild yeasts affecting brewing processes) or even pathogenic.

A basic Yeast Broth medium is available to detect all yeast species that may be present in a sample, whilst a modified, Wild Yeast Broth is available for Speedy Breedy® users interested in detecting contamination with reference to the brewing industry. The Wild Yeast Broth selectively inhibits brewing strains, ensuring only wild strains are detected.

Both Yeast Broth and Wild Yeast Broth contain components to inhibit bacterial growth to ensure that detection is specific to yeasts.
