Microbiology is executed independently from other analysis. If both microbiological and physicochemical analysis are required on the same sample, 2 bottles of the same product are required; one for microbiological analysis and one for physicochemical analysis (check if the physicochemical analysis or the package requires more than one bottle).
Identification of microorganisms can be performed on the colonies that were obtained during the microorganism count analysis (Exception on total count of acetic bacteria). If you are interested in microorganism’s identification, please notify us when sending your sample. So, if your analysis is positive, we will automatically proceed to an identification. A new work order will be sent.
Identification of living yeasts or bacteria: Thanks to the PMA technology, we are offering you the possibility to do a selective identification of the targeted microorganisms, by discriminating dead cells through photoactivation.
Enrichment: An extra enrichment step increases the detection of viable cells if present in very small quantity. (Add 3 to 5 extra days to the analysis).
