The use of HettCube incubators and cooled incubators to quantify micro-organisms in milk and dairy products

Micro-organisms can metabolize the constituents of milk and thereby modify its taste, as well as impacting the processing and shelf life of milk and dairy products. Milk and dairy products are therefore tested to ensure that limit values are not exceeded. The presence of micro-organisms is of particular importance in foods for infants and small children. Manufacturers must, therefore, determine the number of micro-organisms present in their products every month.

Hettich products are designed to help you achieve optimal results for your application and are built to perform to the specifications outlined in the operators manual. For application-specific information and settings, please refer to your organization’s standard operating procedure.
