The Direct Alicyclobacillus (ACB) Vial rapidly detects guaiacol producing Alicyclobacillus in beverages and raw materials. As organisms grow in the broth medium, the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced diffuses through a membrane layer into a soft agar plug containing a dye indicator. The colour change in the dye is read by the Soleris® instrument. The membrane layer also serves as a barrier, eliminating product interference with the reading frame.
