Environmental & Hygiene Monitoring  

Environmental &
Hygiene Monitoring

It is important to sample surfaces of processing areas, equipment and processing aids because foods can be contaminated during processing by pathogenic bacteria that persist in the manufacturing environment, e.g., various species of Listeria and Salmonella.

 

Our Environmental and Hygiene portfolio offers a large selection of Thermo Fisher Scientific products for environmental testing, including Environmental swabs, Contact & Settle plates; as well as a leading solutions in air and ATP surface sampling from global brands such as 3M and TSC. All are designed to meet regulatory guidelines, monitor your processes, and ensure the accuracy of your in house environmental and hygiene testing.

Triple Wrapped Irradiated Plates

Designed for your most regulated environments, Thermo Scientific Triple Wrapped Irradiated Plates feature the latest in quality-assurance technology. From advanced layered protection to enhanced performance, it’s the superior choice for environmental monitoring.

Hygiene Monitoring Systems

Rapid cleanliness testing using ATP bioluminescence has become a widely accepted method to monitor the hygienic status of food production lines and verify effective cleaning procedures.

3M™ Clean-Trace™ Hygiene monitoring products are a simple method of checking for removal of protein residues after cleaning. As the majority of allergens are proteins, if a surface is found to be protein-free, it is also free of protein-based allergens. Monitoring the effectiveness of cleaning in critical areas helps reduce the risk of a food safety incident. With the 3M Clean-Trace Hygiene Monitoring System, monitoring for contamination on surfaces and in hard to reach areas is simple with results available in 30 seconds.

Environmental Flexi Swabs

The Thermo Scientific Environmental Flexi Swab is designed for swabbing all types of surfaces within the food, dairy, beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. It has a unique transport system ensuring viability of microorganisms during transport and its large sample head allows for enhanced recovery compared to cotton-tipped swabs.

 

Sample-Ready Media Plates

3M™ Petrifilm™ plates are a range of sample-ready media plates that are uniquely designed to offer you time savings, increased productivity, reliability and most of all that you can feel confident about. Combined with the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader will provide consistently accurate counts in just 4 seconds. This compact machine fits efficiently into the lab environment and saves critical time by automating your lab’s labour intensive plate reading.

Protein Detection Surface Samplers

3M™ Clean-Trace™ Surface Protein (Allergen) is a simple method of checking for removal of protein residues after cleaning. As the majority of allergens are proteins, if a surface is found to be protein-free, it is also free of protein-based allergens. Monitoring the effectiveness of cleaning in critical areas helps reduce the risk of a food safety incident. With the 3M Clean-Trace Hygiene Monitoring System, monitoring for contamination on surfaces and in hard to reach areas is simple with results available in 30 seconds.

Air Samplers

For use in the pharmaceutical and food production areas or clinical settings for environmental monitoring.

Environmental Surface Sampling Products

A range of hygiene monitoring and environmental monitoring products including Hygiene Surface Sampling Kits offered in a variety of different formats (Hygiene Swab and Hygiene Sponge) to optimise hygiene and environmental monitoring protocols.
