Microbiological vitamin assays in microtiter plates

ifp has developed a ready-to-use test kit in microtiter plate format (VitaFast®) devised for the microbiological assay of all water-soluble vitamins and selected amino acids. The test kit contains all the required reagents (standard, medium, microtiter plate including specific microorganisms) and is easy to use.


This microbiological method requires up to 80 % less time, while allowing for a high degree of automation and excellent precision. Food manufacturers who fortify their products with nutrients will in future be able to perform batch controls with great ease and speed.
