Orion Diagnostica is part of the Orion Group, the leading healthcare company in Finland. Their hygiene monitoring tests provide laboratories, industry and authorities with an on-site means of detecting contamination by micro-organisms or protein residues and monitoring the effectiveness of cleaning and disinfection procedures at sites with strict hygiene requirements.
Hygicult is an agar slide method designed to allow reliable, economical and time-saving on-site microbial hygiene monitoring.
The hinged plastic slide is covered on both sides with agar medium. The slide is enclosed in an aseptic vial enabling transport to the test site and removing the need to send samples to the laboratory.
The slide is inoculated by direct contact with the surface to be tested, swabbing or dipping into a fluid. After incubation the density of microbial growth is compared visually with a model chart provided in the kit. If further testing of the organism(s) is required the slide can be resealed in the vial and transported safely to the laboratory.
