André Siccama, Quality Control Specialist @ Biosisto

There are a large number of standards for counting and detection of micro-organisms. It is a challenge to set up the right process control, media control and external quality control for each method, whereby the analyst can continue his work without too much hassle.

By implementing these standards a large variety of media is used for the cultivation of the micro-organisms. If a method does what you expect is not obvious. For example, there are many factors that affect productivity, selectivity and specificity. Alle aspects in the analytical proces are of great importance in order to obtain reliable and reproducible results.

For the preparation, production, storage and determination of performance characteristics of culture media ISO 11133 was published in 2014. By using the standard, media can be investigated whether it meets the criteria with the use of control strains.
