Application in Hygiene Monitoring


To be hygienic, worktops, cookware, utensils and other equipment in contact with food must be free of invisible residue that food leaves behind which could provide opportunities for microbial growth.


This kit indicates the hygiene level after cleaning by detecting residuals of protein which can be left behind after inadequate cleaning. The kit does not directly indicate microbial activity.
