Rapid Assay for Pasteurization Confirmation of Milk, Cheese and Other Dairy Products

The MaxSignal® Dairy Product Pasteurization Verification Kit is a colorimetric assay for the confirmation of pasteurization of milk, cheese and other dairy products. Milk and other dairy products provide an important source of protein, calcium and other nutrients to many people worldwide. However, raw (unpasteurized) dairy products sometimes contain bacteria and other pathogens which can sicken people. Pasteurization efficiently destroys pathogens in dairy products which make them safe to consume. Milk contains readily detectable levels of an enzyme called alkaline phosphatase. The inactivation of milk alkaline phosphatase occurs at a higher temperature threshold than the threshold for pasteurization. Therefore observation of loss of alkaline phosphatase activity in heat-treated milk samples indicates that pasteurization has occurred. As such, inactivation of milk alkaline phosphatase is the now the universally accepted indicator for successful pasteurization of dairy products.

This kit is manufactured to the international quality standard ISO 9001:2008.
