Chemunex systems are used in routine every day worldwide


Throughout the dairy industry, quality control laboratories are facing increasing pressure to cut the turnaround time on their microbiological testing. The main driver for this is the desire within many companies to reduce production cycle times and  inventories, implement just-in-time manufacturing processes, minimize the risk and cost associated with potential in-process contamination whilst continuing to guarantee and enhance the quality of products delivered to customers.

Product releases based on effectiveness, safety and quickness are becoming an increasingly important factor for all beverages manufacturers worldwide. As classical microbiology is limited by the growth rate of microorganisms on culture media, rapid microbiology systems have become more and more interesting to quality assurance managers during the last few years, also driven by trend of non-preserved beverages and change from traditional glass bottle to modern PET bottle requiring highest demands for aseptic filling.
