MesaStrip® contains bacterial spores on a filter paper carrier sealed within a convenient, peel-open glassine envelope.
To use a MesaStrip®, simply place the envelope inside a product or product package. This “inoculated package” is placed in a sterilizer and processed. Upon removal from the sterilizer, the inoculated package is sent to the microbiology laboratory for transfer of the MesaStrip®. The BI is to be aseptically cultured in soybean casein digest medium and incubated at the appropriate temperature.
