PCR Testing – One Business Day Turn Around Time

Receive rapid genetic-based results to determine contamination from:

  • Saccharomyces var diastaticus
  • Acetic Acid Bacteria (AAB)

  • Hop-Resistant Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) [Some LAB are not hop-resistant but can still contaminate low or 0 IBU beer/wort]
  • Megasphaera
  • Pectinatus

All PCR tests receive complimentary additional agar plating to enumerate level of contamination and confirm viability of contaminants.
