PIKA FastOrange® Yeast Broth
PIKA FastOrange® Yeast Broth is a culture medium which was developed to detect contaminations by yeasts and molds. Besides turbidity and sediment formation, yeasts often show a clearly visible color change of the culture medium from violet to yellow.
For the specific detection of Dekkera (Brettanomyces) yeasts, we recommend FastOrange® BRETT Enrichment bottles (Cat. No. 2037-11).
Incubation time for yeasts is 2-7 days with PCR and 3-10 days with visual evaluation. Incubation time for molds is 3-7 days with PCR and 3-14 days with visual evaluation.
PIKA FastOrange® Yeast Enrichment bottles are sterile single use flasks which are prefilled with an enrichment medium concentrate. They are easy to use and can be applied directly at the sampling point.
