DIEC America Announces New Beer Spoilage Detection System

Arvada, CO — A new state-of-the-art detection system for beer spoilage is now available, a true break through device: the genesig® q16. This compact system is the world’s most accurate, affordable and portable easy-to-use qPCR machine that’s designed to be operated by those with or without any previous PCR experience.

Early detection of bacteria is the best method to avoid beer and beverage spoilage. Spoilage bacteria form as part of the natural decay in the brewing process and can result in wasted product and loss profit. Detecting these bacteria in yeast stocks or in brewing equipment is the fastest and easiest way to avoid a problem.

We offer many beer spoilage detection kits for a complete and affordable solution. We can also design specialized kits upon bacteria species demand.

  • genesig Easy kit for HorA/HorC – Hop resistant Lactobacillus and Pediococcus species
  • genesig Easy kit for Pediococcus genus
  • genesig Easy kit for Pectinatus genus
  • genesig Easy kit for S. cerevisiae
  • genesig Easy kit for B. custersianus
  • genesig Easy kit for B. bruxellensis

Assuming you’re currently using a more traditional microbiology method, the q16 will save you time (sample to results: 2.5 to 3 hours vs. 48 to 72 hours) and as you may know, qPCR results will provide you with quantitative data, not just positive or negative results. Other detection kits only show positive or negative so this is a huge benefit. Our results show quantitative data (highly sensitive, less than 10 bacteria), so you can tell if the product contains targeting bacteria (positive results) but if it is very insignificant, you’re still able to sell it in the market without worries and waste.

Other benefits are:

  • Protect your brewery’s brand from product recall
  • Reduce the impact on the revenue stream
  • Lower the risk for further contamination
  • In-house testing with simple implementation

The genesig q16, a revolutionary instrument, along with our Lab-in-a-box, and EASY DNA/RNA extraction kits, it provides a cost effective solution for a beer/beverage company of any size so let us know your targeting bacteria/yeast.
